Indie Wire is reporting that Marvel just finished negotiations with the UK's Pinewood-Shepperton studios to begin filming Doctor Strange around May 2015. If the Sorcerer Supreme's shooting schedule goes ahead, we're most likely looking at a release in 2016, and since Marvel already has July 8th, 2016 booked, we don't have to speculate very hard.

Keep in mind there's been no confirmation on this release date, but if it's correct, it more than likely means an actor has been chosen to play the titular character. Has Joaquin Phoenix finally agreed? Or has another taken up the mantle? I've heard rumors around Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston, but since he's taking over Ben-Hur, they're probably wrong.

It looks like Tilda Swinton is beating out Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe for the role of The Ancient One, the mentor and ally of Stephen Strange. Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is a former surgeon who after injuring his hands, discovers the supernatural world of magic and demons.

The Ancient One helps Strange become Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, and a prime candidate for The Avengers. While, The Ancient One has typically been portrayed as male, Tilda Swinton seems like the perfect choice to play an ethereal, immortal figure not of this world.

Just a few hours ago Mikkelsen uploaded this picture while on the set of Doctor Strange. Suffice to say, the guy has clearly seen some sh*t. Those tortured eyes speak to some tough times, tough times indeed. Speculation's already runnin' wild over who Mikkelsen might be playing in the movie. Already with his character being described as an ancient sorcerer fresh on the lam from the Ancient One, and busy starting up his own sect, I'd have wagered a guess on Baron Mordo; but Chiwetel Ejiofor's already playing Mordo. 

So, perhaps Dorammu? Or one of Doctor Strange's many magically gifted, demonic foes?

He may not be the Doctor we asked for, but he is the Doctor we deserve
