Viggo Mortensen to play Doctor Strange in Thor: The Dark World? Yes, please!

Sep. 10, 2012by:

Let me state before hand that this is Twidder rumor fodder, so take it with a grain of salt before you get all excited in the pants like I did.

According to Roger Wardell, who either has actual inside information of Marvel casting news or is extremely good at guessing, has posted something quite curious on his Twitter account. Look below:

Then not 19-minutes later comes this...

Now, even though they weren't combined into one tweet, it makes sense that another high profile actor would be stepping into the role. Joel Edgerton recently had to pass because of a busy schedule. Mortensen fits the bill for Strange. He's also the second best option I've heard after coming up with Chris Sarandon, who is too old and would make the role more Dr. Orpheus than Doctor Strange. Though, that's not a bad idea...live-action VENTURE BROTHERS? Take all my money now.

Of course, when we find out, we'll be sure to let you know. Just sit and stew on the thought of it for awhile.

I've been wanting a Dr. Strange film for a long time and I'm completely fine with this casting decision - Viggo could totally hold his own in a Dr Strange feature film and hopefully the Thor spot earns him one!

Would love it to be true, but

I'm gonna hold off until something's confirmed before celebrating. Viggo's an amazing actor; this would make up for the lack of Eastern Promises 2.

Holy Hell, that would rock. I was all for Colin Firth playing him, but I'll take Viggo any day . . . !

I would lose my effing mind if this turned out to be true.

I LOVE Doctor Strange and have been trying to think of who could possibly play him when/if they make a movie. Viggo never crossed my mind, but reading this...it just fits perfectly.
We all know he has the chops.

Not to repost but

This is good news, but who the fuck is Roger Wardell? This guy vomited up a ton of stuff about Baron Zemo and Pepper Potts and Che Lu but I dont see anyone telling me why I should believe this guy at all! I wont click my heels just yet.

Alright...

I'd like to see this happen. Would bring some much needed cred to the whole "Doctor Strange" thing.

A decent enough casting choice - would be cool if they tried to get the best actors they could to fill any roles that they could easily flesh out into their own films. Won't be annoyed if it turns out to be true, anyways.

I would love the casting but I dont see it happening. Wasnt he considering to quit acting just a few years ago? Hes stil in the business, doing smaller films but I dont see him signing with Marvel for a deal about multiple appearances. But he, what do I know?

Meh....

Sorry to be a Negative Nancy, but I'm not sure I'm into this. Viggo is fuckin' great., but as Doc Strange??? Viggo is too soft spoken and rugged. He might draw in more viewers as the lead, but to be honest Chris Sarandon would fit the persona way better. This gives me the same vibes as when Chris Evans was cast as Cap (even though he rocked the shit out of that role, but still not my ideal choice). But I also like being suprised by unlikely choices, so hopefully I'm wrong. Marvel Studios has
