Quickie: Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as Marvel's Dr. Strange

It's official!  Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast in Marvel's Dr. Strange.  After months and months of speculations; one casting rumor after another, it was announced today that the Star Trek Into Darkness alum would play the "sorcerer supreme".

Marvel announced the project long ago; and the character was even mentioned in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  What about Cumberbatch's casting?  I love it!!  He looks the part, he is a tremendous talent, and he can evoke all sorts of emotion with that devious smile and eyes.

If you haven't had the pleasure of watching any of Cumberbatch's work, get on it.  He's been in a long list of tv shows and films.  He was also in last years Best Picture, 12 Years a Slave.  After scoring countless hits, I have no doubt Marvel will treat the character right, and give us a great final product.
