Cumberbatch To Play Doctor Strange
The casting is in and according to Deadline and a few other sources following after then Sherlock Holmes himself Benedict Cumberbatch will play the infamous Doctor Strange. As you guys may remember (http://www.vingle.net/posts/537016) there were a lot of actors up for the role including Ethan Hawke, Ewan McGreggor, and apparently even Keanu Reeves wanted the part?! But no, everybody’s fave Englishman will be the magical Doctor Strange. I’m torn about this, because I love love love Benny and he’s a great actor (I mean have you seen Sherlock?!?!) but he also keeps being cast as bad guys and I’m starting to worry he’s getting stuck with only playing one kind of character. Khan, Smaug, Julian Assange, and that’s just in the last couple of years. He’s a great actor tho so I’m excited to hear more about the movie!!!

Apologies in advance for my negativity here but I am seriously not pleased with this casting choice. Cumberbatch is a great actor, I guess, but he does not live up to the hype he's been getting since Sherlock and he's being cast in roles simply because he's "in" right now and not because he's the best man for the part. The producers for Doctor Strange had a huge list of possibilities, and yet they went with the "it boy villain".
