Doctor Strange is gearing up to be Marvel's first bit of escapist fare to also recall the horrors of slavery. According to THR, title star Benedict Cumberbatch may be joined by his 12 Years a Slave co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor in the superhero film, which Scott Derrickson is directing for a November 2016 release. Talks are said to still be in early stages, and it's not yet clear whom Ejiofor would be playing. Right now, casting is less about filling roles and more about securing all the British guys with the best names to say aloud.
