Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy & More Up for Role in 'Doctor Strange' Now that Marvel Studios has officially confirmed "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch as the title mystical hero in Doctor Strange, the focus has shifted to the supporting roles. So far nobody else has been cast in the film that will be directed by Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), though there have been rumblings (and potentially confused details) about Daniel Bruhl's character from Captain America: Civil War potentially crossing over into Doctor Strange.
