Welcome to Marvel Studios' Phase 3, Benedict Cumberbatch! It wasn't too long ago that rumors began to pop up that Cumberbatch landed the role, but Marvel never confirmed it and didn't mention it at the Marvel Studios' special event in Los Angeles. Well, it's now official and Kevin Feige briefly explained why they think Cumberbatch is the right man to become the mystical character. "Stephen Strange's story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity."
Scott Derrickson is directing and the movie's scheduled to open November 4, 2016. Viners, are you thrilled this casting is finally confirmed or were you hoping it was just a rumor and wanted someone else to get the role?
