Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton talk Doctor Strange over Jenga

Posted on

Marvel

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton will soon be seen magically folding cityscapes and planes of reality back on themselves in Doctor Strange, but first they had to contend with … Jenga pieces?

In a Facebook Live video recorded Wednesday, the Marvel costars took turns precariously removing and restacking wooden blocks while answering fan questions about their upcoming superhero movie. (The questions were written on the game pieces, if that makes any more sense, though we’re not sure it does.)

Over the course of the Q&A, Swinton revealed her hidden talents and whom she would time-travel to meet (parallel parking, the French philosopher Michel de Montaigne), while Cumberbatch weighed in on pet peeves and his favorite thing about playing Strange (toilet paper being hung the wrong way, his hero’s journey).

See more of their answers, their Jenga skills, and how far they get without the tower falling over in the video below. Doctor Strange opens Nov. 4. Learn more here about how you can see Doctor Strange early at EW PopFest.
