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.

In an interview with the folks running Daredevil on Netflix, /Film uncovered this neat tidbit of information:

Daredevil fans might appreciate one trivia tidbit about why Rosario Dawson’s character on the show is Claire Temple, rather than Linda Carter, aka Night Nurse. The simple reason is that we might see Night Nurse in a Marvel movie! “The feature side had plans for her down the road so that was the only time we ran into a conflict,” DeKnight said. “So we just used another name.”
With Marvel's slate of movies between now and 2019 already announced, it's not hard to figure out which upcoming Marvel hero she'd most likely be hanging out with, btw... it's Doctor Strange.



And since we know Rachel McAdams is in talks for the female lead, we can only cross our fingers and hope for the best!

There are reports saying that Joaquin Phoenix of The Gladiator, and going crazy on David Letterman fame "has had discussions" with Marvel and director, Scott Derrickson about playing Doctor Strange in The Marvel MCU. Hopefully we'll find out more at Comic-Con during Marvel's panel tomorrow.

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?
