Just today news was leaked through Deadline that Benedict Cumberbatch is set to star in Marvel’s upcoming film Doctor Strange as the eponymous Stephen Strange. At least, his sources are telling him, Cumberbatch is in final talks with the studio (which usually means it’s a done deal). I’m a believer, far more so than when Joaquin Phoenix was “in final talks”. Cumberbatch hasn’t denied his involvement thus far, and a few months ago stoked that fire in an interview.
Regardless, this news is set to implode Tumblr. May it finally see rest. What are your thoughts on the (as of yet still officially unconfirmed) casting news? Is Blueberry Pumkinpatch worthy of joining the ranks of RDJ, Hemsworth, and Johansson?
