Just saying Benedict Cumberbatch's name aloud can soothe a crying a baby into a deep slumber.

This is why we can imagine many comic book fans were put at ease when they heard that Benedict would be playing Dr. Strange in Marvel's upcoming eponymous film.
Benedict can add this role to his impressive array of SciFi and Fantasy characters: so far he's played a Dragon, a Necromancer, and a genetically engineered superhuman.
His portrayal of Doctor Stephen Strange will hopefully be the next AH-Mazing performance in a long and incredible career.
In addition, Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise his role as Deadpool in the upcoming Deadpool movie. He's reportedly close to closing a deal.
Ryan had played the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, so we're super happy that he'll playing him again.
Congrats to Ryan and Benedict!
