Benedict Cumberbatch is Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE

It has finally been settled: Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as the Marvel Studios’ DOCTOR STRANGE. Steven Strange, who was mentioned in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, is a doctor with both mystical powers and martial arts training. He is incredibly smart and one of the most underrated characters in Marvel Comics.

Cumberbatch is known for many excellent roles such as Khan in STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, Smaug in THE HOBBIT Trilogy, and as SHERLOCK HOLMES on the BBC series. He has been perfectly cast and I can’t wait to see how the project progresses.

You can check out the DOCTOR STRANGE film in July 2016.
