Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange

According to, negotiations have begun at Marvel for Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch to play Doctor Strange. After a deal with first choice Joaquin Phoenix fell through, Marvel went back to the drawing board to get the world's greatest detective into the role of the Sorcerer Supreme. What do you think? Cumberbatch certainly has the acting chops to pull off a role that requires a lot of magic and mysticism. He is the voice of Smaug after all. But I can't help thinking this would usurp a lot of his time, and deny me new episodes of Sherlock which I so desperately crave.

In related news, watch Cumberbatch do his Jar Jar impression, the voice of Smaug, and completely fail at pronouncing the word, "penguins."
