Doctor Strange is now the anchor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Marvel President Kevin Feige said during Benedict Cumberbatch’s Walk of Fame ceremony in Hollywood. During the ceremony, Feige shared that he always saw “potential in this character.”
“To us and to millions around the globe, you deserve this honor for being the first, the best, the greatest and the only Doctor Stephen Strange,” Feige said during his speech. “Benedict has turned this character into an icon, appearing in a historic three of the top six films of all time.”
“It’s been quite a journey, I remember our very first meeting. … We wanted to pitch him this great character, and before we could he said, ‘So tell me about Doctor Strange,’ because somewhere you knew what this could be,” said Feige. “You’ve always seen the tremendous potential in this character and because of that, you’ve become the anchor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the only actor capable of guiding us through the madness of the Multiverse.”
Benedict Cumberbatch, who brought Doctor Strange to life in the MCU, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier this week. He recently appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home and will soon be starring in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
