But it’s not confirmed yet.
Marvel has a big secret event tomorrow, and of course we are going to cover that. The problem is that Deadline scooped them, maybe. Benedict Cumberbatch, Tumblr’s favorite guy, was in the mix for the Doctor Strange role for a long time, so I think this is true. Let’s wait for tomorrow, maybe Marvel will confirm this story.
The Imitation Game will probably give Benedict an Oscar nomination, so be excited. This guy is a great actor, and just imagine a Doctor Strange with the voice of Smaug. The Joaquin Phoenix casting was incredibly good if it was true, but we all knew that there’s no way to get that guy involved in a Marvel movie. Cumberbatch seems like an excellent choice for the role and a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel has the secret event tomorrow, let’s just wait for the confirmation.
