It has recently been announced that Benedict Cumberbatch (known for his title role in Sherlock) has just signed a deal with Marvel Studios to play Dr. Strange in the upcoming movie (set to be released in 2016). Here are my top 4 reasons that he is an amazing choice.
1. Dr. Strange (before becoming Sorcerer Supreme) was an arrogant, egotistical surgeon, Benedict plays an arrogant, egotistical detective in Sherlock so he’s got the personality down to a science.
2. He’ll bring his own group of fans which could lead to more marvel fans.
3.He is used to having a sidekick. This works out well since Dr. Strange is often assisted by Wong who is both his servant and sidekick.
4. He has been in the hobbit, star trek, sherlock… Marvel is the next logical step 🙂
