Marvel President Says Doctor Strange Has ‘Become the Anchor’ of the MCU

Benedict Cumberbatch is known for many roles but as far as Marvel goes, he plays the fan favorite Doctor Strange. Strange was introduced in the self titled film and has been a pivotal aspect of the overarching Marvel cinematic storyline. During a speech for Cumberbatch’s receiving a star on Hollywood’s walk of fame, Kevin Feige went on to say, “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.” The President continued, “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…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.”

Doctor Strange is the anchor literally and figuratively in this live action world of Marvel. With most of the original members of the Avengers out of the picture, there’s a new open spot for somebody to lead. Doctor Strange’s power dwarfs a lot of his comrades due to the large scale of responsibility placed on his shoulders. He will not only be an anchor as a leader or mentor for the upcoming younger heroes but he will also anchor the multiverse as it unravels following the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home
