Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy to star in `Doctor Strange`

Los Angeles: `Sherlock` star Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy are set to star in Marvel`s `Doctor Strange` movie adaptation.

The actors are on the producer`s early wish lists, although it`s unclear what roles they`re being lined up for, according to reports.

It was recently announced that Scott Derrickson will be directing the film, news he confirmed on Twitter earlier this week.

Derrickson`s previous credits include `Sinister` and `The Exorcism of Emily Rose`.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently said that the film will show the supernatural side of the Marvel universe.

"There`s a whole other side to the Marvel universe, which is the supernatural side. We haven`t done anything that mind-trippy yet and for me, Doctor Strange is our doorway into that," he said.

The film is in line for Marvel`s `Phase Three`, which will include `Ant-Man`, `Captain America 3` and alleged `Thor 3` and `Black Panther` movies.
