It looks like Boardwalk Empire and Steve Jobs star Michael Stuhlbarg is set to make his comicbook movie debut in Doctor Strange.

The actor is rumoured to be very close to signing on to play Nicodemus West, a rival of Strange’s who operates on him after his accident in the comics and also travels to Tibet to learn about the ancient arts before leaving before his training was completed.

The movie will tell the story of Stephen Strange, a hotshot surgeon whose brilliant career is cut short when he injures his hands. In a desperate attempt to heal himself, he tries to use magic before eventually training to become the Sorcerer Supreme.

The movie will star Benedict Cumberbatch as Strange alongside Rachel McAdams as the female lead, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor and possibly Mads Mikkelsen; it will be directed by Scott Derrickson.

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….
