Cumberbatch, Hardy on Doctor Strange wish-list

Scott Derrickson set to direct the feature adaptation of the Marvel comic

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy are early contenders for the role of Dr. Stephen Strange in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” movie, according to Deadline.

With a director (Scott Derrickson) now locked in, Marvel has started scrawling their wishlist of potential leads, with many of the usual suspects likely on the memo.

Though Cumberbatch is a strong possibility, the studio apparently likes Hardy just that tad bit more – mainly due to his presence in fellow comic book movie, “The Dark Knight Rises”.

Last week Jared Leto was rumoured for the role.
