Benedict Cumberbatch

According to Deadline,Benedict Cumberbatch is taken the leading role in Marvel Studio’s Doctor Strange, Star of my favorite detective show SHERLOCK is going to be a superhero! I cannot be more excited then this.

Doctor Strange is based on the character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who made his first appearance in 1963’s “Strange Tales” #110. It follows the adventures of Stephen Strange (nodded at in this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier), a brilliant neurosurgeon who, following a car accident, loses precision in his hands. His quest to regain his former skills sets Strange on a path to become the “Master of the Mystic Arts.”

No official release date has been set for the film, the time table for production would lead one to believe that Doctor Strange will land on the July 8, 2016 .
