VIDEO: Benedict Cumberbatch Claims 'I Don't Know About' Playing Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE

For the first time since the actor entered final talks with Marvel Studios, Benedict Cumberbatch has been asked about his titular Doctor Strange role. Check out his reaction after the jump!



Despite reportedly being the frontrunner to star in Marvel's Doctor Strange for the past three weeks, Benedict Cumberbatch would not acknowledge the casting while attending the Hollywood Film Awards last night. In an effort to finally get confirmation, a CBS reporter had slyly congratulated the English actor on landing the Sorcerer Supreme role, to which Cumberbatch quickly replied, "I don't know about that; do you know about that?" Even after the reporter insisted knowing that the Star Trek Into Darkness star will be Doctor Strange, Benedict diverted: "No, no, check your notes." Well played Mr. Cumberbatch, well played. Anyhow, watch the interview at the 1:00 mark below, and expect Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, to be released on November 6, 2016.
