The 'Doctor Strange' casting has come full circle. After a series of stops and starts (we're looking at you, Joaquin Phoenix), Marvel has returned to one of the very first actors they had their eye on for their upcoming superhero movie: Benedict Cumberbatch. Deadline is reporting that the 'Sherlock' star is in "final negotiations" with Marvel to star in 'Doctor Strange' and, presumably, a number of other big 'Avengers' style crossover movies.

Here we go again! Another day, and yet another 'Doctor Strange' update: the latest news has Marvel adding one -- just one -- more name to the ever-growing list of possible stars to play the Sorcerer Supreme, while we've learned that at least a couple of actors haven't quite been crossed off that list just yet: most notably Joaquin Phoenix, who had previously been in negotiations with Marvel over the summer.

This is why awards season is stupid. (Full disclosure: I kind of like awards season sometimes, but it is stupid.) We can’t live in a world in which the media can see ‘The Theory of Everything’ or ‘The Imitation Game’ and just say, “That was a good movie,” then move on with our lives. No, it will be the battle for Best Actor between Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking and Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

Yes, we live in a world where there are dueling 'Jungle Book' adaptations and, no, neither project appears to be backing down.

However, if this new clip is any indication, this film is already going to have the children of the great geek masses in the bag, and that's all that matters, really.
