Marvel announced last month it’s release date for Doctor Strange for July 8th, 2016 — a movie that will be directed by Scott Derrickson. One of the many rumors for this movie has been pretty much revealed to be true. According to Deadline Hollywood, Benedict Cumberbatch has been selected to play as Doctor Strange in Marvel and while it hasn’t been officially announced, negotiations have begun.
Cumberbatch, a British actor, has captured the hearts of many in his various roles and one we see quite often lately is Sherlock. We can’t expect for an actor as great as Cumberbatch have negotiations fall through. Shooting for the movie will begin in May.
