Oh, the Tumblr memes this news is going to generate! Though the casting seems a bit too obvious, Benedict Cumberbatch is reportedly going to play Doctor Strange. This is according to Deadline, who claims that he’s Marvel’s choice for the role and negotiations are about to begin.
The film is likely to be taking the July 8, 2016 spot, so we have a while to wait. If you’re not familiar with the character, Doctor Strange was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, and made his first appearance in 1963′s “Strange Tales” #110. Stephen Strange is a brilliant neurosurgeon who loses his abilities after a terrible car accident. In his search to find a way to regain them, he becomes “Master of the Mystic Arts.”
Let the debate begin!
