It look likes we have our Doctor Strange, and it's Benedict Cumberbatch.

Cumberbatch, who was among the rumored actors for a while, is said by Deadline to be Marvel's choice for the role.

It's noted the deal isn't finalized, but stated negotiations are to begin, with the deal expected to be made.

Benedict Cumberbatch has been rumored for just about every role in Hollywood, including Star Wars: Episode VII and even Batman Vs. Superman, but now we see Marvel Studios moved in and scooped up the Sherlock actor, who also played Khan for J.J. Abrams in Star Trek Into Darkness.

The Doctor Strange movie has a July 8, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson with a script by John Spaihts.
