This year's San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone, and with all the news came a few rumors that either got their start or were debunked at the massive event. Not all of our Comic-Con questions were answered—whither Fantastic Four and Jurassic World?—but here is where we can separate fact from fiction. Or at least assume we can.
Rumor: Joaquin Phoenix will play Doctor Strange. (Or Benedict Cumberbatch.)
Marvel was expected to make some sort of big announcement at their big Hall H panel Saturday, and rumor had it that the announcement would have something to do with Doctor Strange. Though Benedict Cumberbatch had been rumored to be playing the sorcerer—and had fun joking about said rumors at his Penguins of Madagascar panel—The Wrap reported that Joaquin Phoenix was in discussions for the role on Friday. Alas, when Marvel's panel rolled around the next day there was no news about Doctor Strange, or really any new Marvel projects. That's not to say that The Wrap's report was false, but Phoenix wasn't enough of a done deal to make a Comic-Con stop. The big surprise Marvel revealed was a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. Not much of surprise.
