Dr. Strange - Benedict Cumberbatch Cast!

Awesome! I think he'll make a great Dr. Strange. I just hope they let him keep his accent.

Re: Dr. Strange - Benedict Cumberbatch Cast!

Not confirmed; just a lot of lazy linking to this Deadline piece that mentions
I’m hearing Benedict Cumberbatch is the studio’s choice for the superhero pic, and negotiations are about to begin
Nothing confirmed, and Joaquin Phoenix was in "negotiations" before he dropped out of the role too.

Cumby is a good choice.

If this is true then he's got lots of notable characters under his belt. First Sherlock Holmes, then Khan, now Dr. Strange.

Love Benedict, yet would have loved it more to see Ethan Hawke get the gig.

Good choice! He definitely has the commanding voice for it.

I personally wouldn't mind too much if this Strange had a British accent, as having an American accent isn't an integral part of his character. But you know there will be people that will go "But Dr. Strange isn't British!!!!"

And sure enough, I just saw exactly than in a comment on the SuperheroHype article.

I hope he get's it. My only minor complaint is that it'll probably mean another delay for Sherlock.

Cumberbatch will be good. if there is ever a scene where Dr Strange encounters Loki i fear the fangirls will melt.

Yeah, I'm waiting for something more official before I consider it official. Although there's a big Marvel thing tomorrow, so it might be announced then.

Either way, perhaps the thread should be about Dr. Strange as a whole rather than Benedict Cumberbatch?
