HOLLYWOOD – British actor Benedict Cumberbatch announced today that he is to play Doctor Strange in the Scott Derrickson directed Marvel adventure, due out in two year’s time.
Benedict Cumberbatch, speaking EXCLUSIVELY to Studio Exec, answered the door and screamed:
I am KHAN!
Before correcting himself, clearing his throat and screaming:
I am DOCTOR STRANGE!
How did you feel about the role?
Oh absolutely spiffing. I said to my man Jenkers, Jenkers old fellow, I rather have it in my old noggin to play Doctor Strange. And do you know what he said?
He said and I quote ‘Very good, sir.’ Font of infinite wisdom is Jenkers. When God was about his business creating Jenkers he poured in the grey matter from a very large jug marked ‘the good stuff’!
Do you read the comics?
Ha ha. Course not. One doesn’t read comics my dear chap, you just look at the bally pictures.
Doctor Strange will be released July 8 2016 at 4.14 pm.
