Marvel’s new slate of eight superhero films announced at a fan event includes both sequels to its stream of box office hits and new franchises, with “Doctor Strange” kicking off the newcomers in 2016.
Doctor Strange is a former neurosurgeon who loses the ability to perform surgery and turns to magic. Despite widespread reports that he would be played by British actor Benedict Cumber batch, Marvel did not confirm casting.
“We are excited to tap into what excites us the most, which is the supernatural,” Marvel studio president Kevin Feige said.
“If (casting) were confirmed, we would have introduced him today. Every single actor of a certain age has been rumored to be Doctor Strange,” he added..
