It's a Marvel casting news extravaganza this morning, with Latino Review claiming that Marvel has met with Johnny Depp over the title role in their forthcoming Doctor Strange adaptation.
The good doctor is a highly skilled sorcerer, the primary protector of Earth against magical villains, and has already been confirmed by Kevin Feige as being the next character on his Marvel hit-list.
According to the report, Depp is a big fan of the comicbooks, and it is thought his good relationship with Disney could help things along towards an agreement…
That said, the same site linked Joseph Gordon-Levitt to the role last year, with the report conceding that some script alterations would need to be made to accommodate the significantly older Depp into the role.
Whether or not this proves to be hot air remains to be seen, but on the face of it, Depp would seem a reasonable fit for the part. Could there be another Michael Douglas-sized bombshell on the near horizon? We'll have to wait and see...
