Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange

Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the fastest rising actors that the film & TV world has seen in some time. His ascent is only going to continue with the release of the upcoming Marvel Studios film, “Doctor Strange.” In it, he plays Stephen Strange, AKA, The Sorcerer Supreme. So, that puts three popular characters under his belt (Strange, Sherlock Holmes, and Khan).

Now, through Entertainment Weekly, we’ve gotten our highly anticipated first look at Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Can’t wait to see more.

What about you guys? Impressed with what you see?

As always, hit the comment section, and let us know.

UPDATE

Here are more images from the film, which were posted exclusively on the Entertainment Weekly website.

This movie is certainly on the right track. The images seen above are all classic Doctor Strange, ripped straight from the comics. That’s why fans (myself included) have begun to celebrate the choice of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, much in the same way we all celebrated Robert Downey Jr. getting cast as Iron Man, or Patrick Stewart as Professor X. It genuinely looks to be a perfect choice.

Cumberbatch is definitely going to have him some more Cumber-bitches after this flick hits theaters.
