[Movies] UPDATED: Is Marvel Looking At Johnny Depp To Play Doctor Strange?
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.14.2014

Update: The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit wrote on Twitter that Marvel has denied any meetings happening between them and Johnny Depp for Doctor Strange. He also wrote that Marvel is looking for new writers for a new script and will not be using the script that Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer wrote in 2010.

Original: Latino Review claims that Marvel is looking at Johnny Depp to play Doctor Strange. Depp has reportedly had a meeting with Marvel to discuss taking the role.

Depp is a comic book fan and is "very interested" in joining a Marvel project. He also has a good relationship with Disney thanks to Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice in Wonderland. It's believed that Disney would move the production of Pirates 5 around if Depp agrees to play Strange.

If Depp takes the role, it may require some script changes as the original script had Dr. Strange as a 30-year-old. This would have nothing to do with Marvel's Phase 2 or The Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is a Phase 3 project with a potential 2016 release date. If it happens, the soonest Depp would be revealed is the post-credits sequence in The Avengers.

The website also claims that fans wanting Depp to get the role may have played a part in him being considered.
