Doctor Strange meets his doggie double

Benedict Cumberbatch introduces Doctor Strange Pug and other dogs dressed as Marvel superheroes.

While Marvel's newest superhero film "Doctor Strange" has already opened internationally, Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme won't grace US screens until Friday. The actor, however, is tiding over eager fans with his canine counterpart.

"Now it's time for a new hero to rise, one who will fight to protect the very fabric of reality itself," Cumberbatch says in a YouTube video posted Friday.

The video shows a pug dog dressed exactly like Doctor Strange, right down to the red cape.

The video also features other dogs dressed as Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor and Captain America. But where are the dog versions of Black Widow, Ant-Man, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Daredevil? Here's hoping for a sequel.
