Benedict Cumberbatch Is Doctor Strange

Benedict-Strange-529x360

Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of “Sherlock,” The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and the upcoming The Imitation Game, has taken the leading role in Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange!

Doctor Strange is based on the character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who made his first appearance in 1963’s “Strange Tales” #110. It follows the adventures of Stephen Strange (nodded at in this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier), a brilliant neurosurgeon who, following a car accident, loses precision in his hands. His quest to regain his former skills sets Strange on a path to become the “Master of the Mystic Arts.”

Although no official release date has been set for the film, the time table for production would lead one to believe that Doctor Strange will land on the July 8, 2016 release date that Marvel has already bookmarked for a theatrical release.
