After months of speculation about who would fill the title role, Marvel finally announced last week that Benedict Cumberbatch would indeed star in Doctor Strange. Hopefully this next casting decision wont take as long. Rumor has it that Marvel has approached Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe, and Bill Nighy for the role of The Ancient One. If you’re not familiar, The Ancient One is the former “Sorcerer Supreme” and Doctor Strange’s mentor. He also mentored Baron Karl Mordo, who is heavily speculated to feature as the villain of Doctor Strange.
Scott Derrickson (Sinister) is directing the film from a script by John Spaihts. Doctor Strange is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016. Hit the jump for more.
