Joaquin Phoenix is no longer in talks with Marvel Studios to take up the role of Doctor Strange. A deal was never reached, despite rumors to the contrary, and so, the studio has moved on.
So, does this mean the rumors of Ethan Hawke entering talks for the role are legit? Not according to Deadline, who claim that is nothing more than speculation run wild.
And so, speculation can begin anew. After teasing references to the Doctor, most recently he got a shout-out in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel has clearly made this character a priority.
Scott Derrickson is directing and Jon Spaihts is writing the script for the film. Doctor Strange was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko during that Marvel Comics heyday of the early 1960s. He’s a neurosurgeon who becomes Sorcerer Supreme, protecting Earth against magical and mystical threats with powers of sorcery, mysticism, and martial arts. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is producing.
Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
