After first engaging in talks back in October, Marvel Studios finally confirmed earlier this month that Benedict Cumberbatch is portraying the title character in Doctor Strange. Casting for the supporting roles is starting to heat up, with Morgan Freeman being eyed to play the Ancient One, who serves as a mentor to Stephen Strange in the comic books. While we wait for the cast to be finalized, director Scott Derrickson recently took to his Twitter page to debut new artwork feturing Benedict Cumberbatch.
