Benedict Cumberbatch Is Doctor Strange?!


Well according to Deadline Benedict Cumberbatch is Doctor Strange, but Marvel seems to be hinting that they are incorrect.  Since Marvel hasn’t outright said Deadline is wrong, I am going to guess Cumberbatch is the Sorcerer Supreme and they are just trying to cause doubt before their big reveal.

Benedict is a fine actor, and I am sure that he will be great in this role, but I am having a hard time picturing him as Strange.  Sure the mock-up by Anne Wu helps, but the thought of Cumberbatch with a Van Dyke is throwing me off, and I hope he doesn’t just play Strange as Sherlock with magic.  We will see how this all turns out, and since Marvel has been on a role, I am going to trust them on this.
