If you’re going to tell a tale about Doctor Strange, there’s three characters that arguably have to be there for the beginning, Stephen Strange, the Ancient One, and Baron Mordo. Well, now the final piece of that puzzle has been cast. As Chiwetel Ejiofor has been cast as Baron Mordo.
Baron Mordo is usually the main enemy of Doctor Strange, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be the antagonist of the film. We’ll have to see whether he will be the main villain, or a different version of the character to start.
“Although he’s an enemy in the comics, don’t look for him to be necessarily a completely villainous character,” claims Deadline. “Rather, he’s an amalgamation of characters culled from Doctor Strange‘s mythology.”
