Benedict Cumberbatch Talks About Doctor Strange

Benedict Cumberbatch as DOCTOR STRANGE By Scott Derrickson

Speaking with The Wall Street Journal, Cumberbatch was asked if taking on this part in Doctor Strange was a risk, to which he replied:

“I don’t think it’s a risk because of Marvel. Marvel is a stable of bringing out ordinary comic characters and turning them into screen-like gods. It’s very different, it’s an Astral Plane. There’s a huge new element to this Marvel universe that’s going to be employed in building this story and this character. But you know, I’m really excited about it, about working with Scott [Derrickson] whose imagination is endless, and all the boys and girls at Marvel who know what they’re doing. I’ve got a few things to get under my belt first.”

When asked if he would be heading out to the Himalayas to film for the movie, the actor said:

“Ahh … you’ll have to wait and see. I’m not going to be eked out on any spoilers or reveals now. It’s quite a way off but I’m very excited about that spiritual dimension, obviously. It’s something that’s been a huge part of my life.”

Cumberbatch was also asked if he had read the Doctor Strange comics while growing up, and though he revealed he hadn’t, the actor confirmed that “You can bet your bottom dollar I’m reading them now, avidly.”

It is said to follow the story of neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. Doctor Strange is scripted by Jon Spaihts and directed by Scott Derrickson.

Release Date November 4, 2016,
