Back when Ol’ Bendy-Cumbs was announced as the frontrunner for Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme, I had a lot of trouble visualizing him in the role. He’s got an odd mug, that Cumberbatch, and I just couldn’t him see wearing the signature Van Dyke beard and wizard sleeves.
But this works, I think. The slicked-back graying temples, the magical leather girdle… It’s totally silly, but it’s gonna look great on screen with Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Scott Adkins.
November 4, 2016 is when you’ll get some Strange.
UPDATE: Some concept art and an additional photo of Cumberbatch have hit the web. See ’em below.
