Bleeding Cool is reporting a rumor from their inside sources that Doctor Strange might make an appearance in Marvel’s Iron Fist Netflix series. There’s a good chance that Benedict Cumberbatch will be involved, but there’s no information on to what extent. The site says,
“Whether he will be played by Benedict Cumberbatch as he is in the upcoming movie scheduled for next year, or will be shown in a way that doesn’t need such a high profile actor to be on set, I don’t know. But odds are that the Cumberbatch will at least do the voice.”
This is just a rumor for now, but Bleeding Cool has been good with Marvel scoops like this, so it might turn out to be legit. Only time will tell. Iron Fist hasn’t started filming yet, but it’s not too hard to think that the Sorcerer Supreme could show up. After all, the two characters have history together in the comics.
Scott Derrickson is directing the feature film Doctor Strange, and Marvel will release it on November 4th , 2016. If they do include Doctor Strange in the series, they might as well, go all the way. Do you think it makes sense for Strange to appear in Iron Fist?
