Follow the alleged departure of Joaquin Phoenix from the Doctor Strange role, it's currently rumored that Benedict Cumberbatch is next in line to play the Sorcerer Supreme for Marvel Studios.
Last night at the Hollywood Film Awards, Benedict Cumberbatch was featured in a Red Carpet interview where CBS mentioned he was playing a superhero.
"I don't know about that. Do you know about that?" Cumberbatch responded. "He needs to check his notes."
"I think you are Doctor Strange," CBS stated again.
Cumberbatch shook his head no and again stated, "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.
