Benedict Cumberbatch Confirmed as Marvels Doctor Strange

Marvel‘s Doctor Strange (2016) will be played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The Doctor Strange movie will be directed by Scott Derrickson because Marvel wants a very dark Doctor Strange movie. Cumberbatch’s contract as Doctor Strange will most likely be for at least 4 Marvel films. Doctor Strange is a fantastic character who fights demons and other-worldly beings and is the sorcerer supreme of magic. I cannot wait to see how this film adapts to the big screen.

Who is Doctor Strange via Marvel.com

Doctor Strange is one of the most powerful sorcerers in existence. Like most sorcerers, he draws his power from three primary sources: the invocation of powerful mystic entities or objects, the manipulation of the universe’s ambient magical energy, and his own psychic resources. Strange’s magical repertoire includes energy projection and manipulation, matter transformation, animation of inanimate objects, teleportation, illusion-casting, mesmerism, thought projection, astral projection, dimensional travel, time travel and mental possession, to name a few. The full range of his abilities is unknown. Doctor Strange’s powers are sometimes less effective against strictly science-based opponents, although he can overcome this limitation with effort.

Doctor Strange is a skilled athlete and martial artist with substantial medical and magical knowledge. Though an expert surgeon, Strange’s nerve-damaged hands prevent him from performing surgery except when supplemented by magic.
