Glad that it finally got confirmed...I've warmed up a bit to the idea of 'batch as Strange...(not looking forward to round 2 of the tumblr wars though -_-;; )
This was a big casting announcement day for Marvel, not only did they finally announce 'batch, they also cast Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.t:
Are people still going to talk about how disappointing this is because it was "predicatable"?
I know there a lot still in disagreement with the choice, but he's a great choice to take on the Marvel world. Him, Chadwick Boseman, the Guardians cast... All great actors to take over in the coming years from our usual stars (Evans, Downey, Hemsworth).
I get more years to perfect my "Benedict Cumberbatch Name Generator" game.
I was one of the guys who griped a bit about Benedict Cumberbatch being a "predictable" choice back when this casting was first rumoured. I like Cumberbatch, but I felt like based on Sherlock I already knew what to expect from his Doctor Strange. But even in my original post airing this concern, I acknowledged that sometimes a choice is "obvious" because they're a damn good fit for the part, and said that while I wouldn't be blown away by the casting I'd generally be in support of it.
But the more I've thought about it, the more I was cool with Cumberbatch getting the part, and the more I struggled to think of anyone else in the running who I could imagine bringing a unique quality to Strange the way he could. And then I saw his ASTOUNDING performance in The Imitation Game, and that got me a lot more enthused about seeing him as Strange. So I was actively rooting for Cumberbatch to get confirmed in the role by the time this announcement came.
Though I think most of all, I'm just happy they've confirmed SOMEONE and we can now move forward from there!
- Cumberbatch & Huddleston need scenes together at some point. Fangirl $$$
- Definitely need a Sherlock Holmes joke in one of these movie their in
- Will he have a close relationship with the actual Hulk not just BB
Cant wait.... most important question how many films on the contract?
Yes. This is fantastic.
Wondering whether he asked them to announce it after his press tour for his recent movies, so interviewers didn't talk to him about if over the other movies.
I know he kept getting asked questions, but it would have been worse if it was official.
On the bright side, at least we won't have to hear him get fancast in every single Marvel movie from now on...
I still stand by my point that it's a meh choice and it's predictable. I'd rather see an up and comer like Pratt or Hemsworth get these kind of roles.
But at least I'll know he'll do a good job
This is great news after spending time sick in bed all day!
Glad that Cumberbatch was finally announced. I think he's a good choice.
Is Gamora going to be distrustful of him now? They were both in "Star Trek Into Darkness" together.
Am I right in thinking The Imitation Game hasn't been released in the US yet? Anyone remotely curious about seeing Benedict Cumberbatch at his best really must go see this movie. He gives an utter powerhouse performance in it.
It was released last Friday here in the US, I have interest in it but might wait for the Blu-Ray.
What a week for announcements. DC's Suicide Squad, Bond, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and now Dr Strange (those last 4 all happened today).
if strange is gonna be a marquee player, you need someone with major charisma and presence. cumberbatch is a FANTASTIC choice here.
I know! I think I need to go for a lie-down now...
We already knew this.
Little disappointed Marvel Studios didn't go a much more stranger direction............
Adam Sandler? No thanks. I cannot see him headlining a Marvel franchise and being the next charismatic actor after RDJ.
I wanted Pedro Pascal, but I guess this is good. Can't wait to see what he does with it.
Well, we strongly suspected, but it wasn't confirmed until tonight.
I don't think an up-and-comer would've been as appropriate for this role as they were for characters like Thor and Star Lord, tbh.
It's been an incredible week. What an Era we lie in for comic books.
However, my mind can only take so much right now!
