If Cumberbatch does get the role it will be glorious.

I still would have prefered Aidan Gillen

An alumni of The Wire and my favorite actor on Game of Thrones. He would make a good Dr. Strange.

Great acting skills thats for sure. But we will see how he can make the character his own.

I believe its all in whether or not an actor can really become the character as oppose to acting chops. I mean look at Chris Hemsworth, an incredibly perfect casting and plays the character right on point.
I have faith in Cumberbatch, he will do well.

@xwraith:

I have been a huge fan of him every since Sherlock TV series.

thats not even his best work! Watch the short film Stuart's Life Backward, him and Tom Hardy are really young and both knock it out of the park in that movie. Movie came out like 6 years ago, and that was when i knew Cumberbatch, well really both actors were destined to be great.

Love Cumberbatch and if this is true I am sure he will perform excellently. However, I do not believe he is the ideal candidate for the role.

I think he would have nailed it.

I'm fine with this choice since he's slim and mysterious.

I see people dropping names like Vigo and Depp and I just don't see it at all. Let's do one better and demand Robert Loggia.

This would have been a much better choice. Unfortunately, Cumberbatch pulls in the weird anglo-phile fanbase that has sprung up in the last 10 years. Those "philes" will see anything with a BBC lead actor in it and since they often aren't also comic fans, it means more money for the studios. I think this is the same reason Otter-batch got the role in Star Trek.

Christ, forget that. I hate Cumberbatch. If this winds up going through, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna pass on this movie.

Wait, so you don't like him because he's English?

I'm English, so that's funny. I don't dislike him, I just don't think his is right for this role or for Kahn.

I can't help but laugh at Benadryl Cumbersnatch's existence like how is someone that ugly even real.

I've seen Cumberbatch in a couple of different roles now and I'm convinced he can play almost anything and make you believe he's that character. I'd be very happy to see him as Doctor Strange. I think he can really nail the character.

Not sure how well he'll rock the beard, but he seems like a good choice.
