Earlier this week we learned that Sinister director Scott Derrickson is set to direct Doctor Strange. Marvel is now seriously on the hunt for an actor to take on the lead role. According to Deadline, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy are on the list of actors they'd like to cast.
Both actors are amazingly talented, and each has their own qualities that they Would bring to the character. Out of these two actors, though, I would love to see Cumberbatch take it on.
No offers have been made yet, but right now I'm rooting for Cumberbatch. The more I think about him as Doctor Strange, the more enthusiastic I get about this movie! I just think he'd be awesome. Previous actors rumored for the role have been Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jared Leto, and Johnny Depp.
Out of these two actors, who would you like to see in the role?
