Whoa. This is huge!

Ever since Marvel and Joaquin Phoenix couldn't see eye-to-eye on Doctor Strange, the hunt has been on for their next superhero star.

Finding the perfect lead for the long-announced film will be as integral as Robert Downey Jr. was to the success of Iron Man, so it's no wonder the search has gone on for so long!

A-list names from Daniel Radcliffe to Ethan Hawke to Matthew McConaughey have been mentioned as potentials, but it looks like Marvel has gone another way.

A way fans may just embrace…

Multiple sources are reporting that Marvel has made its choice in Benedict Cumberbatch!

Is he the perfect choice?

The Emmy winner certainly has the gravitas and acting ability to play the surgeon-turned-sorcerer. And as Sherlock he's already accustomed to speaking over everyone's head.

But Benedict also has a magnetic charm that will bring his self-proclaimed "Cumberb*tches" out to the theaters in droves!

And Marvel already learned with Guardians Of The Galaxy that winning over the female audience can mean the difference between a hit and the biggest film of the year!

According to reports, Marvel is set on its new choice and is ready to start negotiating!

Of course, that's where things went awry with Joaquin, so… we'll keep our fingers crossed and hope for magic!

    Great news! Love Benedict! Could they hire Keira Knightley as Clea?!

    The only thing I like about this actor is his name. The rest, i.e. acting and so on, well, any actor can do the job. However, we all know that acting ability doesn't have that much to do with getting the job. It's the notoriety surrounding the actor that counts. Cumberbatch was lucky enough to score himself good manager and pick the roles that were trendy. Now he just rides the gravy train, like all those other 10 actors that we see in every bloody blockbuster movie. People pay for scandals, juicy gossip, so Cumberbatch came up with admittance that he was experimenting homosexual activities just to get his ass in the spotlight and probably score himself another trendy part. *sigh*
    Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against this man personally. It's the bullshit that their PR are feeding the potential fans that irks me. I think new actors should have just as much opportunity to get a part as the "dead wood" of bloody Hollywood.
