If that's not enough of a tease, the Roar singer is interrupted during the filming by Ben Stiller in character as Zoolander!

Doctor Strange totally just put a spell on us!
We can't wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch take on the title role in Marvel's new superhero film, especially after seeing him as the character on EW's new cover!
