Benedict Cumberbatch Takes on an American Accent in First Trailer for 'Doctor Strange'

Whoa. For some reason, when everyone was clamoring for Cumberbatch to play Doctor Strange to the point where his eventual casting couldn't have seemed any more inevitable, I thought what they wanted was essentially his Sherlock-ian british genius character. Hearing him do an american accent here is kinda odd, to say the least, right? Other than that odd little detail, the movie looks kinda cool. Not so much like the other Marvel movies, which is a good thing for variety (although I'm sure the studio will do whatever it takes to make it palatable with the brand). Doctor Strange is primed for a Thanksgiving release date. But I still wish Cumby was a brit.
