It looks like Marvel might have found their Dr. Strange!
Reports are flying in that out of all the actors in contention for the part that finally Marvel is in final negotiations to solidify a deal.
Colin Farrell, Keanu Reeves, Ewan McGregor, Matthew McConaughey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Oscar Isaac, Jared Leto, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy and more were in talks for the part of Dr. Strange.
Joaquin Phoenix was in talks but walked away from Marvel after not wanting to sign a multiple picture deal.
Now, it looks like Marvel has landed on Star Trek star Benedict Cumberbatch. At first it looked like the deal wouldn’t happen because Benedict had a conflict with his shooting schedule for Sherlock but it looks like that has been cleared up.
I guess we’ll have to wait for the official announcement.
