Hello fellow moviegoers!
So, over the past few months there has been an enormous number of rumors about who is going to play Doctor Strange. About a month ago, it was broke online that Marvel had cast Benedict Cumberbatch as the Doctor. But it was quickly shot down by head-honcho Kevin Feige, who say they were not quite done with negotiations yet. Well, now it is official, Benedict Cumberbatch will be the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel's 2016 movie!
There are quite a few people out there that ridicule this casting, calling it too safe and predictable. But they forget to realize, it is still great casting! This is probably some of the best comic-book movie casting I have seen in a while (except for Batfleck of course). Benedict Cumberbatch is a magnificent A-Class actor. I have yet to see The Imitation Game, but from everything I have been hearing about it, he gives an oscar-worthy performance.
This is brilliant casting, Cumberbatch is a brilliant actor. I cannot wait to see him join the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his new character. Speaking of which, while I know more about Strange than I do about something like InHumans, I still don't know much about this character. But from the few Dr. Strange comics I have read, I think it is safe to say that Cumberbatch fits this character pretty well!
One thing I want to point out though, is that Marvel and DC have a bit of a back and forth going on.
Marvel: Civil War Rumor?
DC: Film Slate, Flash cast, Aquaman cast
Marvel: Phase 3 Slate, Black Panther Cast
DC: Suicide Squad cast
Marvel: Doctor Strange cast
Your move DC...
So what do you think of the Benedict Cumberbatch casting as Doctor Strange? Do you think he is a right fit for the role? Let me know by commenting on this post!
