Most Hollywood stars can't be blamed for wanting to keep a low profile when they're out shopping, which made Benedict Cumberbatch's visit to a New York comic shop in full Doctor Strange costume all the more, well, strange.

CCTV footage from JHU Comic Books in New York reveals the British actor walking into the store wearing a cape and full make-up, much to the surprise of staff and customers.

He poses for pictures with a copy of the Doctor Strange comic and then for selfies with the staff. The footage shows him laughing and then shaking hands before leaving the shop.

Cumberbatch is starring in the latest Marvel comic adaptation as a neurosurgeon who turns to mystical arts after a car accident ends his medical career. Doctor Strange is due to be released in the UK in late October.
