I was going to make a post of the news that Buttercup Chickenstrips Benedict Cumberbatch was being considered for the role of Dr. Strange, Sorcerer Supreme, but I figured I’d roll it up into one post. Marvel has announced their timetable for Phase 3 of their Cinematic Universe.

And here it is a nutshell:

  • Captain America 3: Civil War on May 6th, 2016
  • Doctor Strange on November 4th, 2016
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 on May 5th, 2017
  • Thor 3: Ragnarok on July 28th, 2017
  • Black Panther on November 3rd, 2017
  • Captain Marvel on July 6th, 2018
  • Inhumans on November 2nd, 2018
  • Avengers: Infinity War Part One in May 2018
  • Avengers: Infinity War Part Two in May 2019

Marvel faked the name of Captain America 3 as having a subtitle of “Serpent Society”. Journalists in a rush to be first published the fake name only to change it after the real name of “Civil War” was confirmed and pretended like nothing happened. But Google sees all and knows all and shows the fake name being indexed. Those titles might corrected by the time you read thi though but still, SEO humor…

So yeah, rumors of Bentobox Coggleswort Benedict Cumberbatch being cast for the Dr. Strange movie started circulating a few days ago. As far as I can tell, nothing’s been confirmed as of yet but they are in “final negotiations”. If nothing came out of the today’s Marvel event confirming Baseballmitt’s Benedict’s casting, then I can only assume that they are still talking or they are looking to break the news in some other way.

Anyways, me, personally, am most excited about the Captain Marvel movie. Nick and I were chatting about it a little bit in the chat room and he mentioned Katee Sackhoff as being perfect for the role. I’d have to agree 100% and when I was googling her name for an image to use in this post, I came across this Bleeding Cool article published last year:

Somewhere around 33 minutes and 50 seconds Sackhoff is asked if there’s been “anything from Disney or Marvel yet.”

Here’s how she replied:

Um… There’s been some stuff going on. Um… there’s been a lot of checking of availability… I don’t quite know exactly… I don’t know… there’s been a lot of questions about the first quarter of next year and then the…

It reads quite clearly there but if you listen to the actual audio, they talk all over her and, at the end, cut her off. She had more to add but the hosts prevented it coming out.


Now her name isn’t attached to the Age of Ultron movie as the article suggests, so it could be very well be that she is indeed being considered for Carol Danvers which would probably be the best casting decision ever. I need to sit down now. I feel like I’m going to hyperventilate.
