Benedict Cumberbatch, who played Dr. Strange will be replaced by his double in a new Avengers movie. Aaron Lazar will stand in for Cumberbatch due to scheduling conflicts.
Lazar will shoot all the scenes and then later Benedict will reshoot the scenes in which Dr. Strange’s face can be seen. He will also record a new dialogue.
One of the sources at Disney said:
“They are not digitally superimposing Cumberbatch onto another actor’s performance.”
Benedict Cumberbatch is currently shooting the film The Current War, playing Thomas Edison. Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland and Sienna Miller are part of the cast.
