Benedict Cumberbatch To Appear In Netflix’s Iron Fist As Doctor Strange?

They were disputed.

Well, those who have seen Age Of Ultron or have read Bleeding Cool’s post-screening spoiler tally will know one of them is true regarding Age Of Ultron. And now we know another is true about Civil War, thanks to CBM.

During the Meet The Filmmakers event at London’s Apple Store, Elizabeth Olsen was asked if she will be reprising her Avengers: Age Of Ultron role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch for the Marvel threequel and responded affirmatively, saying:”I guess I’m allowed to talk about that now”

Doesn’t mean anything else is true, but it is at least a good start. Two for two.

So here’s another from one of my similarly well connected sources, that it is planned that the character of Doctor Strange will make an appearance in Marvel’s Netflix shows.

Specifically Iron Fist.

Whether he will be played by Benedict Cumberbatch as he is in the upcoming movie scheduled for next year, or will be shown in a way that doesn’t need such a high profile actor to be on set, I don’t know. But odds are that the Cumberbatch will at least do the voice.

I may of course be putting the cart before the horse. Devin’s calling out of Bleeding Cool was based on an old script he’d read,not the finished film and equally, Iron Fist hasn’t been filmed yet. But, right now, it’s what I understand is being planned.
