Is it weird that I don't think of "Dr. Strange" as Benedict Cumberbatch anymore? The actor and the Marvel character have become separate entities in my brain. (I suppose this is especially appropriate given the split realities of the forthcoming sequel.) When I watched The Power of the Dog, all four or five times I have done so, I never once thought of the MCU, and vice versa -- looking at the trailer for the latest Dr. Strange movie, which premiered during the Super Bowl yesterday, I have to walk my brain hand in hand to the realization that Strange is Cumberbatch. Cumberbatch is Strange!
Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is out on May 6th.
