Doctor Strange might not bat an eye in the face of evil, but Benedict Cumberbatch, on the other hand, is a total scaredy cat. The Avengers: Infinity War star stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the movie, and boy did the master of surprises get him good.

After Ellen asked him if he likes scary movies, Benedict said, "I scare very easy, and I have a rampant imagination . . . [but] you know it's like, OK, that's fake blood. Although, I'm still very susceptible." Turns out he was right about scaring easily, because when one of Ellen's staff members popped out in an Iron Man costume, his reaction was priceless. Watch it all in the video above.
