Mads Mikkelsen Reportedly Onboard For Doctor Strange Movie


The other day, The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that Michael Stuhlbarg is in talks with Marvel Studios for a role in Doctor Strange and within that story they nonchalantly confirmed that Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen has joined the cast.

That's pretty big news. In August, it was reported by Variety that Mikkelsen was for a villain role in Doctor Strange, but a month later Mikkelsen told MTime it was a rumor and was still waiting for a phone call from Marvel. Guess they gave him a ring.

Which villainous character could he play remains a mystery. Chiwetel Ejiofor is already slated as Strange’s archenemies Baron Mordo. Perhaps the dread Dormammu? Or maybe the devilish Mephisto?

By the way, Cumberbatch was spotted in Nepal filming a scene for the film. Check it out by clicking here.

Filming will take place in London, England and is expected to begin in December. Scott Derrickson is directing with a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams is rumored to be playing Christine Palmer, also known as Night Nurse, and Mads Mikkelsen will play an unspecified villain role.

Marvel's Dr. Strange will cast a spell on audiences November 4, 2016.

    What a waste of talent. He should have held out until Disney got the rights to Dr. Doom instead.
