If reports are true, Mads Mikkelsen is in talks with Marvel to play and unconfirmed role in the upcoming Doctor Strange movie.
Mads was originally cast in Thor: The Dark Wold as Malekith but dropped out due to scheduling issues but it would seem both Mads and Marvel are looking to rekindle some magic for the sorcerer supreme.
With Baron Mordo already the big bad for the movie it would seem futile to use someone with Mikkelsen’s ability in a secondary role, so it may be he is being set up as a future antagonist.
The cast of Doctor Strange is beginning to shape up to be a powerhouse of actors, real actors. We’re not talking your everyday blow shit up, popcorn movie kind of actors but award winning thesps. Doctor Strange will materialise on our screens on November 4th 2016 with Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, Chiwetel Ejiofor as the villainous Baron Mordo, and Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One.
