Cumberbatch, Farrell, Reeves AND Phoenix Are The Frontrunners For DOCTOR STRANGE

It's been a busy week for Doctor Strange casting rumours, but four frontrunners have emerged in the form of Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock), Colin Farrell (Seven Psychopaths), Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) and Joaquin Phoenix (Her). Wait, what?! Read on for details...


The Wrap reveals that four frontrunners have now emerged for the role of Doctor Strange in the Marvel Studios movie, and one of them is none other than the man who recently dropped out and resulted in all of the recent casting rumours. According to the site, he has apparently had second thoughts and he shouldn't be counted out just yet. However, also in the mix is British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, a fan-favourite choice who was said to be in talks very early on in the casting process. A surprise addition to the lengthy shortlist is none other than Colin Farrell, an actor who was recently added to the second season of True Detective. This is the first time we've heard him connected to Doctor Strange, while that fan support for Keanu Reeves has put him on Marvel's radar and the studio are said to be paying attention. Cumberabatch's busy schedule could stop him nabbing the coveted part, while Jared Leto, Justin Theroux and Oscar Isaac are still actively pursuing the role. Which of these actors would you most like to see as the Sorcerer Supreme?
