To No One’s Surprise, Benedict Cumberbatch Will Play Doctor Strange


As it was previously rumored, Marvel has now confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the lead role in Doctor Strange. In case you're unfamiliar, the doctor's a pretty big deal, "responsible for defending [our realm] against all threats from mystical hell dimensions." The film is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2016, so Cumberbatch has just under two years to learn enough magic to grow himself some really intense facial hair.
