Benedict Cumberbatch *Is* Doctor Strange

Looks like that Sherlock filming schedule is about to become even more problematic.

Star of Sherlock, Khan of Star Trek Into Darkness and Smaug of The Hobbit, Benedict Cumberbatch, despite denying rumours previously, looks to be the new Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie, according to Deadline at least.

Seriously, he looks like he was drawn by Steve Ditko.
