Benedict Cumberbatch is Surprised at Doctor Strange’s MCU Prominence

June 20, 2022

Benedict Cumberbatch has become one of the lynchpins of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Doctor Strange, but that is not something the actor ever saw happening. While Stephen Strange has taken over part of the MCU role left by the departure of Tony Stark, as a mentor figure to Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and now being an integral part of the Marvel multiverse story arc, it all came as a surprise for Cumberbatch. When first taking on the character in 2017, almost a decade into the MCU’s story, Cumberbatch saw Dr. Strange as an interesting character but never expected him to gain the prominence he has in the franchise.
