Marvel may have finally found the man to play Doctor Strange, the superhero sorcerer capable of generating intense and prolonged casting rumors. According to Deadline, the role has gone to Benedict Cumberbatch, who was rumored back in June due to his being the most obvious candidate for being anyone described as "strange."

A ridiculous number of actors have been talked about for the part, with Joaquin Phoenix, Ethan Hawke, Ewan McGregor, Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, Oscar Isaac, and Jake Gyllenhaal being the most recent round of names tossed around. But apparently this time sources "expect this deal to make," so you can forget about those guys until the 2017 listicle "You Won't Believe Who Almost Played Doctor Strange!"
