Is Doctor Strange headed for Thor:The Dark World?

September 11th, 2012 by Marc 2 Comments

One of our favourite rumours this week is the news that Thor: The Dark World may feature another familiar face for Marvel fans…

Yes, the rumour mill is spinning away, and this time, once again, Doctor Strange has arisen. The character, who in the comics who is almost killed in a car crash then wakes up with near-impossible psychic powers, is apparently being lined up for Viggo Mortensen or Warrior actor Joel Edgerton – Nicholas Cage was rumoured for years to be attached to a solo movie, but this looks very unlikely given Cage’s history with comic adaptations.

Given that the reason this is all doing the rounds is primarily because there has still been no hints from Marvel that a Strange movie was coming it still seems a bit of a stretch. Still, with a Dr Strange script by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer done and dusted, this is all still very much filed under rumour, as cool as it may be…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
