Benedict Cumberbatch Will Play Marvel’s Doctor Strange


Deadline reports that renown actor Benedict Cumberbatch is currently in negotiations with Marvel to play the super hero Doctor Strange. Cumberbatch was not the company’s first choice as other stars such as Tom Hardy, Joaquin Phoenix and Jared Leto were also considered for the role, but none signed on to the project.

Scott Derrickson is signed on to direct the film with screenwriter Jon Spaihts to compose the movie’s screenplay. The film is still in the early stages of production, but it seems that the world will indeed receive their fill of the beloved Doctor Strange.
