Benedict Cumberbatch Cast As Doctor Strange Because WHY NOT

It was announced earlier today that, after months of rumors and dumb fan posters, Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as the lead in  Marvel’s Doctor Strange, because why the heck not.

Cumberbatch, who was somehow chosen over Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Oded Fehr, is reportedly close to signing an actual piece of paper that says he’s going to play the starring role in one of Marvel’s Phase 3 films.

Marvel Studios’ executives made the announcement today, presumably after they were asked for the five millionth time whether or not they had thought about casting Cumberbatch for the role. Said one Marvel Studios representative, “FINE. FINE. CUMBERBATCH IS STRANGE. NOW FOR THE LOVE OF CAPTAIN AMERICA’S SHIELD WILL YOU LEAVE US ALONE ABOUT IT.”

Doctor Strange, which, again, is going to actually star Benedict Cumberbatch, has a rumored release date of July 8, 2016.

Pher Sturz

Christopher, or Pher as most Great Apes refer to him (except for Chimpanzees – because they’re rude and never tip waiters either…), is a normal looking Homo Sapiens Sapiens. He’s so normal looking, he’s the host most likely to turn out to be a serial killer or trained assassin. Pher claims he is not, but that’s exactly what we’d expect him to say. Pher has never cofounded an anime convention, which makes his life incomplete and Nick and Trae just feel sorry for him most of the time. Pher left Nerd & Tie at the end of 2016.
