It was announced over a month ago that Benedict Cumberbatch was cast as Marvel’s eccentric sorcerer DOCTOR STRANGE, but Marvel has officially confirmed the casting in a new statement!
In the statement, Marvel exec Kevin Feige said Cumberbatch’s acting chops are just what the film needed:
“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity. In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”
DOCTOR STRANGE will hits theaters on November 4, 2016.
