Benedict Cumberbatch is once again denying being cast as Doctor Strange.

Following Joaquin's Phoenix apparent departure from the Doctor Strange movie, it was stated Benedict Cumberbatch was almost a sealed deal to play the Sorcerer Supreme.

Now for a second time, Cumberbatch says it isn't true.

USA Today caught up with the actor and directly asked if he is playing Doctor Strange.

Benedict Cumberbatch's response?

"Tell the fanboys it’s still a rumor," he replied.

Cumberbatch's previous response to a similar line of questioning was to "Check your notes."

Doctor Strange has a November 6, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson, with it recently rumored that Daniel Bruhl may be the potential villain of the film.
