The Cumberbatch appeared at Comic-Con 2014, ostensibly to promote Penguins of Madagascar, but at the Dreamworks panel, he joked about rumors he’s up for Marvel’s Dr. Strange. Fans asked Bennie and his Penguins co-star, John Malkovich which superhero they’d each like to play, and this is what the boys had to say:

In case it was unclear, Malkovich answered, “Lois Lane,” and Cumberbatch: “Nurse Normal.” And according to Vulture, the rumor is that Marvel will announce Sherlock’s casting as Dr. Strange at their Saturday Comic-Con panel…sure is convenient Bennie’s already there. When directly asked about the rumor, the actor replied: “What rumors?…anything could happen” Cumberbatch said he was leaving San Diego today (Thursday), but would be back at Comic-Con on Saturday, then added: “Doctor Who?”

Everybody say hmm…
