According to Collider, Joaquin Phoenix is in final negotiations to play the lead role in Marvel Doctor Strange. Rumors of Phoenix taking the role first started in July, but things got quiet as Phoenix and Marvel refused to comment on the story. There was speculation that negotiations hit a snag due to Phoenix wanting to make sure that taking a role in a Marvel franchise didn't limit his ability to pursue other projects.
Doctor Strange is currently set for a July 8th, 2016 release date.
