This is really sad to hear.

Once the first official image of the Sorcerer Supreme was released by Entertainment Weekly, we knew the studio found the PERFECT man for the job.
Last week, we got even MORE pics of Cumberbatch as he and costar Chiwetel Ejiofor were spotted in New York filming an action sequence for the superhero flick.
Well apparently the Sherlock star wasn't ONLY working in the Big Apple as he stopped by a local comic book shop, JHU Comic Books, to surprise them in between takes — in full costume!
The store took to Facebook to share an image with Benedict (below):
Well these were fun photos to come across on Saturday!
Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor were spotted in New York City filming scenes for Marvel's upcoming flick Doctor Strange — and the pair was working hard for it!
Video captured Cumberbatch and Ejiofor filming scenes involving the two sprinting down busy Manhattan streets, while photos of the pair (above) captured the two in action in the much-anticipated film!
Ch-ch-check out more (below)!!!
If that's not enough of a tease, the Roar singer is interrupted during the filming by Ben Stiller in character as Zoolander!
Ch-ch-check out Katy's video for yourself (below) and let us know what you think!
Doctor Strange totally just put a spell on us!
We can't wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch take on the title role in Marvel's new superhero film, especially after seeing him as the character on EW's new cover!
Filming only began in November for the upcoming superhero flick, but Entertainment Weekly offered a magical early peek at the titular comic book hero — so early, it was one of the first times Cumberbatch tried on his costume!
The Sherlock star is still in the process of immersing himself into the character of Doctor Stephen Strange — a self-centered surgeon who transforms into a watchful sorcerer!
The actor explained how he's still figuring out the appropriate ways to gesture when conducting spells, as he is meticulously rehearsing different movements. He said:
The highly anticipated trailer for Zoolander 2 got fans excited for the sequel when it dropped last month, but it also managed to spark major backlash for its portrayal of a "non-binary" character!
Justin Theroux, who co-penned the script for the comedy, has responded to the criticism, promising that the scene was meant as satire and was taken out of context!
Speaking to The Wrap, Jennifer Aniston's husband said:
"I don't even know what to make of it, because it hurts my feelings in a way. I take great care in the jokes I write, and the umbrage being taken is out of the context of the scene. I wish people would see the movie first. Satire is a thing that points out the idiots, and we went through it on Tropic Thunder with the ‘R' word."
Back in 2008, The Leftovers actor got heat from disabled groups who blasted Robert Downey Jr.'s repeated use of the word "retard" in Tropic Thunder!
But according to Theroux, that was used as a comedic device to comment on the ugliness of people who use that word! He added:
In a new letter penned to Father Christmas as part of the Letters Live series, the 39-year-old Sherlock star jokingly reminisced about asking for a lightsaber, only to never receive it!
Clearly he holds a grudge! LOLz!
But that was the lightest note of the entire letter, as Ben heart-wrenchingly poured out:
"You are for the children. Children who need some magic in a world where [sp] the borders between innocence and responsibility, playful imagination and cold, adult obstacles are continually shrinking."
And he continued to ask for:
