‘Doctor Strange’ Star Benedict Cumberbatch Is Nervous as ‘F—‘ in ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

Actor will host NBC sketch series this Saturday

Doctor Strange himself is ready to enchant the world of “Saturday Night Live.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of the upcoming Marvel movie, appeared in a new promo for his “SNL” appearance in which he dramatically eyes up the stage in Studio 8H and says, “We meet at last.” Of course, upon taking the stage, he says, “Oh f—.” Cumberbatch will host “SNL” this Saturday.

Meanwhile, “Doctor Strange” is poised to work some magic on the box office this weekend. The film is expected to earn $73 million in its opening at the domestic box office and has already amassed $99 million overseas.

Current predictions seat “Doctor Strange” in 19th among Marvel openings. The Benedict Cumberbatch movie should easily come in ahead of “Thor,” which debuted at $65.7 million in 2011, as well as the debuts of “Ant-Man” ($57 million) and “Captain America: The First Avenger” ($65 million).

“Doctor Strange” follows the story of talented neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions.

Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.

Directed by Scott Derrickson, the movie also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Amy Landecker and Scott Adkins.
