Rumor: Dr. Strange to join Thor 2?


By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth!

Take this with a grain of salt, kiddies, but Screenrant reports that another Marvel staple may be getting his introduction in next year's Thor: The Dark World, and that character is Dr. Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme himself!

Here's what they have to say on the matter: 

Keeping in mind that the title of the film (The Dark World) had yet to be revealed, and the rumors above weren't accurate, we held off on the biggest rumor of them all: that the Thor sequel would introduce and star Doctor Stephen StrangeThe Playlist claimed that Natalie Portman’s character Jane Foster could be working alongside Dr. Strange in a similar capacity as she did with Stellan Skarsgård’s Dr. Erik Selvig in the first film, and that Strange would be playing a big part in “all three acts” of the film, as opposed to being relegated to a cameo-type introduction. He would play a scientist (he’s a genius neurosurgeon in the comics) and someone who’s deeply interested in Foster’s stories and knowledge about Asgard and Thor.

Now, their source comes from a The Playlist podcast that discussed a lot of rumors, some of which turned out to be false, but some (the Edgar Wright-directed Ant-Man scene after Iron Man 3, for instance) have a lot more credence, so take this with a grain of salt. But, if it does turn out to be true, then the Dr. Strange movie that's been collecting dust since the announcement of Marvel Studios may be a lot closer to reality than any of us might think.

And while Strange being a scientist instead of a doctor bothers me a lot what are you doing Marvel little bit, I trust Marvel fairly implicitly to make Dr. (Professor?) Strange freaking awesome. So, who would you cast as Dr. Strange? Sound off in the comments!
