Thor: The Dark World Rumored to Have Doctor Strange Debut, Actor Viggo Mortensen Rumored to be Targeted Too
Thor: The Dark World already has the following (SPOILERS coming) happening in the new movie with: Loki "being dealt with" by Odin, Dark Elves and their leader Malekith the Accursed, an expanded role for Heimdall and now a certain Doctor is rumored to make his big screen debut in the new film.
Per the mysterious Twitter account of someone named Roger Wardell, actor Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings trilogy) is currently being targeted by Marvel Studios and it could be to play none other than Doctor Strange—who could also debut in Thor's next big screen adventure.
You may be thinking, "Who is this Wardell guy?" and he is the same guy who tweeted out information, before it was even announced by Marvel Studios, including: saying the Falcon would be in the next Captain America movie about 24 hours before Marvel said it and how Sebastian Stan would reprise his role as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier in the new Cap movie too. (At least it's cited this way in the comments section of this ComicBookMovie.com post.)
In other words, this Wardell fellow seems to be legit.
Not to be "Captain Obvious," we here at The Daily SuperHero still need to remind everyone to take all rumors with a grain of salt until Marvel officially makes an announcement. Until then, we can only assume this info is accurate and Mortensen could indeed be the Sorcerer Supreme in Thor: The Dark World.
Very exciting regardless!
