“Benedict Cumberbatch has entered the world of the mystic arts.
The actor will star in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016. The film, directed by Scott Derrickson with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.
‘Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,’ said Producer Kevin Feige. ‘In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.’”
