According to Variety sources up till now there has been no offer made to the star but it is expected to be made pretty soon. Apart from this Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor will be on board to co-star. Plus the comic book movie will be directed by Scott Derrickson from a script by Jon Spaihts.
Cumberbatch will be playing Vincent Strange who will be a former neurosurgeon. And who becomes the next Sorcerer Supreme. And also the primary protector of Earth against the magical and mystical threats.
This character was created back in 1963 by Marvel Comics artist Steve Ditko. Swinton is slated to play Strange’s mentor, the Ancient One. While Ejiofor will be appearing as Baron Mordo. Who basically studies magic under the Ancient One in the comic books.
Later he becomes Doctor Strange’s nemesis. Now coming to Mikkelsen his role remains a secret. But sources say that he will be another antagonist to Cumberbatch’s titular sorcerer.
Marvel has been interested in Mikkelsen for quite some time now. And at one time even wanted him for the villainous role of Malekith in ‘Thor: The Dark World’.
