Benedict Cumberbatch Bulking Up For Doctor Strange



Benedict Cumberbatch, known for his lean and slender look, is stated to be bulking up for his role in Doctor Strange.

According to the Daily Mail, Benedict Cumberbatch is packing on the pounds to play Stephen Strange through diet and use of a personal trainer.

It's said Cumberbatch has doubled his daily dose of calories and is also using protein drinks.

It's noted Benedict Cumberbatch got into shape for Star Trek Into Darkness as well.

"I did a lot of training and I did a lot of eating,' Cumberbatch previously said about training to play Khan. "By the end I could do handstand press-ups, feet up against the wall, lowering my head to the floor and pushing up. It didn't last long, but I could definitely do that for a week or two."

Cumberbatch was also featured shirtless as part of a scene that was cut from Star Trek Into Darkness, which you can watch below.

Doctor Strange has a November 4, 2016 release with Scott Derrickson directing, and Rachel McAdams has been offered the part of the female lead.
