Rumor: Doctor Strange will be introduced on Netflix's Iron Fist series

Doctor Strange Iron Fist

Here's a tasty rumor to start your day: Bleeding Cool has heard Doctor Strange will first debut on Netflix's Iron Fist series before his solo movie. The site doesn't know if star Benedict Cumberbatch will actually appear on the show (e.g. filming the character in shadows so you can't tell it's not the actor), but they believe it's very likely Cumberbatch will "at least do the voice."

This would make sense since both Doctor Strange and Iron Fist/Danny Rand are heavily involved with the mystical elements from the Marvel comics, and Strange has also led The Defenders. Danny Rand hasn't even been cast yet though, so things could change, but the site says right now, this is what they "understand is being planned."

Director Scott Derrickson is expected to start shooting DOCTOR STRANGE next month for its November 2016 release, so, if this rumor is true, does this mean Iron Fist will be available on Netflix in early-to-mid 2016? Perhaps, but Daredevil season two and the first season of Luke Cage are both also scheduled to premiere sometime in 2016. Could we really be getting three different Netflix Marvel series in one year? And do you think there's a chance Doctor Strange will end up being introduced on Iron First?

DOCTOR STRANGE will hit theaters on November 4, 2016.

Would be cool as hell. Even if he's just the hotshot surgeon, pre-powers.

Why it would only be voice work is beyond me. Would be pretty pointless.

And the coolness factor of an interconnected MCU continues to reap major rewards. I'd love this happen, especially considering how amazing DD was. I admit I was never a hug fan of Luke Cage and Iron fist and the heroes for hire lines, but I am extremely excited for them given the quality we all just got to see from Marvel/Abc Studios/Netflix joint venture. There could be 10 series on Netflix and I'd watch them all. Knowing Strange could first appear in a series there, all the more reason to

The mystical side of the MCU is one that is largely untapped, so I am quite excited for it.

Not sure if this is a good idea. In my eyes, this kind of thing could be the downfall of Marvel. Of course I want their Universe to be "connected", but if they start making them too connected then casual fans who only watch the movies or people who don't want to pay for Netflix will be left out of the loop.

Good

We knew that Doctor Strange would be on the Defenders show at some point but I didn't expect it so soon. Hopefully we will see Elektra, the Punisher, Spider-Man, Moon Knight, the Daughters of the Dragon, Blade and Ghost Rider on Netflix and in Spider-Man and Doctor Strange movies. We don't need everybody in the Avengers,

With the way Daredevil was handled & allowed to be dark, gritty & violent. It makes sense now to have other dark characters like Punisher, Blade & Ghost Rider to also have shows on Netflix.

That's actually not a bad idea to introduce Doctor Strange in Netflix series - not just Iron Fist, he can be introduced into any Netflix's Marvel series.

It would definitely expand the Marvel universe a bit more when it came to Marvel's television series. Maybe down the line we can get an appearance from Stark visiting Hell's Kitchen or something.

That would be very cool ...

... if it's true. Linking their TV and film properties is one of Marvel's smarter moves.

It would certainly be a cool move by Marvel and Cumberbatch is no stranger to TV so not sure why he'd only make a voice cameo.

Cumberbatch has talked about how he likes to do TV in the past, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was up for this.
