It’s officially official, Marvel fans. Our favorite Sherlock is going to be Doctor Strange. Marvel made the announcement today, after months of rumors about the casting of this iconic character in his very own movie.
However, I’m going to point out that the news is that Cumberbatch is “in negotiations,” which, as we know in Hollywood-speak, means it’s not exactly final. He may decide they can’t pay him enough (doubtful) or that he doesn’t want the role (also doubtful).
But for now, we can rejoice, because the mystery has been solved.
