Benedict Cumberbatch confirmed as Doctor Strange
December 6, 2014 By Holly Clarkson
It was all but confirmed by Marvel that Cumberbatch would play the sorcerer Doctor Strange in the up-coming film part of Marvel’s Phase 3 but Marvel have come forward and confirmed that he will be taking the role.
The confirmation comes after they revealed that the Doctor Strange film is set to be released on November 4th 2016. We don’t know if we will see him in a Marvel film before the solo movie but we will definitely learn about his origins in Doctor Strange in 2016.
The film, directed by Scott Derrickson with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.
When asked to comment on Benedict Cumberbatch taking the role as well as the film, Producer Kevin Feige said:
“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity, In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”
