Last week, we got even MORE pics of Cumberbatch as he and costar Chiwetel Ejiofor were spotted in New York filming an action sequence for the superhero flick.

Well apparently the Sherlock star wasn’t ONLY working in the Big Apple as he stopped by a local comic book shop, JHU Comic Books, to surprise them in between takes — in full costume!

The store took to Facebook to share an image with Benedict (below):

So, the Doctor just came in for a quick visit. #drstrange #benedictcumberbatch

The shop also posted security camera footage to YouTube of the actor’s visit:

Talk about a magical surprise!

Director Scott Derrickson also dropped in alongside his star to deliver a very important message:

Is filming done already? A first trailer must be right around the corner… get ready for magic, Cumberbitches!

Make sure you catch Doctor Strange when it appears in theaters November 4!
