‘Doctor Strange’ Movie: ‘Hannibal’ Star Mads Mikkelsen Joins Benedict Cumberbatch

“Doctor Strange” of Marvel Cinematic Universe eyes “Hannibal” fame Mads Mikkelsen to play the antagonist in the movie. Kevin Feige’s “Doctor Strange” has an A-list star cast and Mad Mikkelsen’s involvement is just going to be cherry on the cake.

Mads Mikkelsen has already earned title of ‘cannibal’ from his recently shelved TV Series “Hannibal.” The joining of Mads Mikkelsen with Benedict Cumberbatch might just be the only thing missing. Although, there has been no official comments from the Marvel’s team, Variety reports that Mikkelsen will be playing villain opposite to Cumberbatch’s titular sorcerer.
