    What are your thoughts on Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange? Do you think he'll make a good choice for the role?

    It has also been confirmed that the movie will be an origin story.

    I'm not hyped too much for this film, but I'm looking forward to it.

    Frankly I would have preferred Viggo Mortensen for the role as I feel some of his past roles appear to be good markers as to how he would portray Strange. Although I do enjoy Benedict Cumberbatch, I find his current cinematic presence a bit much as of late. He's just in so many films (along with Sherlock) that people who are interested in Dr. Strange and the MCU will already have seen a lot of his other work and will have a hard time suspending disbelief with this character, which will be important.
