Well, this is interesting….
According to THR, actress Tilda Swindon is in talks to play the Ancient One, the Tibetan mystic who is a mentor to Dr Strange.
With Benedict Cumberbatch already signed on as The Sorcerer Supreme, it’s clear that Marvel is bringing in real talent on Scott Derrickson’s movie.
“Strange’s mentor is a Tibetan mystic known as the Ancient One, who is training pupils to be the next sorcerer supreme. In the comics, the character has been a male and Marvel Studios initially was searching for a male actor.”
Indeed Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe were all rumoured in talks for the roe (here)
