By now, I am sure that everyone has heard the news that Benedict Cumberbatch is in talks to be Doctor Strange in Marvels upcoming movie.(All thisnews coming from Deadline.com) Now, while some people say that this is confirmed and that he is officially going to play the sorcerer supreme, but this is not the case just yet. Nothing is set in stone and you know the world of movie “news”. But lets say just for a second that Benedict is planning on taking the role.
- Will he make a good sorcerer?
- What plot line will they take with the movie?
- Will he be apart of the new set of Avengers after Age of Ultron?
Well according to the good old eye ball test we can see that even photoshop can make him look like an excellent choice for the role. Now just think about what the awesome wardrobe and make up people over at Marvel can do. You add in the way he just draws everyone in and the voice that can make you believe anything is true. He has just the flair from bringing a magic using superhero to the masses on the big screen. From what I have seen online, there is next to no one who doesn’t think that this is a great movie by Marvel.
As for the plot of this movie, I believe they will stick to the KISS rule. Not familiar with that rule? Keep it simple stupid! I do not think they will do anything to extreme, besides just explaining who Doctor Steven Strange is and go through the entire story of him loosing his ability to be a surgeon. The entire movie will lead to the Ancient One teaching him to be the next Sorcerer Supreme, and then ending with a final fight against Mondo. Maybe you use the end credit scene to show him finding Dormammu from the dark dimension or use this time to tie him into the Avengers. A little sneak peak of the future for Dr. Strange.
This sets up the last point. Will Dr. Strange appear in the third Avengers film. This week we got news from the big wigs at Marvel that the roster of Earths mightiest heroes will not stay the same after Age of Ultron. With Feige giving this statement, it leaves the roster wide open. (also makes me love it even more. I love that he plans to make the Avengers what they should be.)
“The Avengers films, ideally, in the grand plan are always big, giant linchpins,” says Feige. “It’s like as it was in publishing, when each of the characters would go on their own adventures and then occasionally team up for a big, 12-issue mega-event. Then they would go back into their own comics, and be changed from whatever that event was. I envision the same thing occurring after this movie, because the [Avengers] roster is altered by the finale of this film.”
I think that he will in fact be a part of the third Avengers installment. With them aiming for such a high profile actor, it only makes sense to add him into the main story line as fast as possible. With that said, here is my line up for the next Avengers: Cap, Dr. Strange, Antman, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, and Falcon. I think that most of the “major” Avengers will be split up for the next movie. After the probable Civil War story line, it would make sense for it to be a little less star studded. Disagree? Put your line up in the comments below and let’s talk about it!09pi9okm,
