Dr. Strange has 3 rumoured frontrunners for the role

Dr. Strange initially hit the screen in a 1978 television movie based on the Marvel character. Strange was created by  Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and the film was written and directed by Philip DeGuere (Stan Lee served as a consultant on the film).

The television movie aimed to be a pilot for a proposed new series and aired on September 6, 1978 from 8pm to 10pm on CBS. This was the same network that at that time aired The Amazing Spiderman (which aired its second season premiere the day before Dr. Strange) and The Incredible Hulk. Unfortunately for DeGuere, CBS did not pick up Dr. Strange as a series and it has stayed in limbo until a recent name drop in the MCU.

Rumours now are abound that three men are in the running to play the “Sorcerer Supreme”. These three men are:  Colin Farrell, Benedict Cumberbatch and Keanu Reeves. Doctor Strange is rumoured for a July 8, 2016 release date and in examining the schedules of those involved it would suggest that Dr Strange may be a most excellent adventure!
