That's the rumor...
Justin Theroux is reportedly up for the lead role in Marvel's Phase Three film Doctor Strange. CHUD reports that a "trusted industry source" claims Marvel Studios is considering Theroux (Lost Highway, Wanderlust) for the role.
The source notes, "There's no word on whether or not he is the only name being looked at for the part of Stephen Strange, but I am told that there is a strong interest over at the House of Lee in seeing [Theroux] become the Sorcerer Supreme."
Theroux is also a writer and has worked with Marvel before, penning the script for Iron Man 2. However, there is no potential confirmation yet so treat this as a rumor for now. Doctor Strange will be released some time after The Avengers 2, which is slated for summer 2015.
