Two of the most enticing words in the english language: Michael Shannon. Attach that name to just about anything and you’ve automatically made it 100 percent more interesting. That may be the case with The Current War, as Shannon is in talks to join what could be a very, very early contender for the 2017 awards season. Benedict Cumberbatch is already set to star in the upcoming historical drama about the battle between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse.

Marvel’s decision to cast a white woman in the role of an Asian character has been just one of many threads in the theme of Hollywood whitewashing this year. In the upcoming ‘Doctor Strange,’ Tilda Swinton will play the Ancient One, originally an Asian character in the comic books. Now Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and ‘Doctor Strange’ director Scott Derrickson have chimed in about their reasons for casting Swinton, and how they might be trying to make up for that by tweaking another role.

It’s a well-known fact that both parts of the Avengers’ upcoming Infinity War one-two punch will unite essentially all of the heroes we’ve seen in the franchise thus far, including the Guardians of the Galaxy and maybe the Punisher (if Chris Pratt gets his way). So far, we hadn’t heard anything about how Doctor Strange will fit into the mix, even though his movie is the next big outing on Marvel’s slate this year. But now, Benedict Cumberbatch himself has all but confirmed that the Sorcerer Supreme will make an appearance in Infinity War.

Even from the very beginning  —  when director Jon Favreau put his reputation on the line to get Robert Downey, Jr. in the original Iron Man movie  —  the Marvel Cinematic Universe has earned its reputation for finding just the right actors in just the right roles. Sometimes, like in the case of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the casting is painfully obvious; sometimes it catches you a little by surprise. Who would have known ten years ago that Chris Evans would become the perfect embodiment of Captain America?

Like the most recent featurette before it, the latest sneak peek at Doctor Strange includes a little bit of new footage alongside interviews with the cast and Marvel’s Kevin Feige. This time around, the focus is squarely on the hero of the story, Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and his journey from brilliant neurosurgeon to Sorcerer Supreme — with a little help from bald Tilda Swinton, of course.
