Dr. Strange cut from ‘WandaVision’ for being a ‘white guy’

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch did a disappearing act from the “WandaVision” finale because Marvel honchos didn’t want a “white guy” stealing the show, a top studio boss said in a new interview. 

Cumberbatch, who has previously played sorcerer Dr. Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was originally set to make a cameo in the Disney+ show’s last episode, Rolling Stone reported Monday. 

But he was written out of the show, because “it would have taken away from Wanda,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told the mag.

“Some people might say, ‘Oh, it would’ve been so cool to see Dr. Strange,’” Feige said. “But it would have taken away from Wanda, which is what we didn’t want to do. We didn’t want the end of the show to be commoditized to go to the next movie — here’s the white guy, ‘Let me show you how power works.’”

Feige told the outlet Marvel’s writing process is “a wonderful combination of very dedicated coordination, and chaos. Chaos magic.” 

Head writer Jac Schaeffer said Cumberbatch was also set to appear in one of “WandaVision’s” commercials, which would have been messages from Dr. Strange to Wanda, but that idea was also cut.

Instead of Dr. Strange saving the day, the show ended with Wanda learning powers mostly on her own, and becoming the Scarlet Witch, according to Insider.
