As of late, it seems like the MARVEL Cinematic Universe is constantly expanding, what with a whole slate of upcoming films on its roster, and with the studio currently shooting “Doctor Strange,” which will come out towards the end of 2016. However, it was just recently learned that although the film has already begun shooting several scenes, another cast member has been added to its already prestigious cast list. Read on to learn more as to who has been signed on to a journey through the mystic arts with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Stephen Strange.
Just a week after the latest “Doctor Strange” cast announcement was made, MARVEL Studios, according to The Wrap, Slash Film and Cinema Blend, has just announced that they have just added “Transparent’s” Amy Landecker to the film’s already impressive line up.
However, what is even more intriguing is the fact that no other details regarding who she will be portraying has been released, which will no doubt cause fans of both the actress and the comics to speculate as to who she might be portraying.
So far, what is known about the film is that aside from Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular Stephen Strange, actress Tilda Swinton will be portraying the Ancient One, while Chiwetel Ejiofor will be portraying Strange’s mystical rival, Baron Mordo.
Rachel McAdams is also part of the cast of the film, but her role is also being highly speculated upon, as the studio has not yet shared details on who she will be portraying.
However, in the meantime, fans of the character, and those who are looking forward to encounter the Sorcerer Supreme on the big screen can discover him, and the worlds he travels to in his very own comic book entitled “Doctor Strange.”
This is a reboot of the comic and is part of the “All New, All Different MARVEL” initiative, whose comics are all set after the events of the cataclysmic events of “Secret Wars,” an event which is still ongoing.
“Doctor Strange” is set to hit the theaters on November 4, 2016.
