Does Marvel Want Jared Leto To Play DOCTOR STRANGE?

Following on from the announcement of a Doctor Strange director, Badass Digest has suggested that Marvel is interested in casting Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) in the title role! Hit the jump for more.


With the announcement that Scott Derrickson is set to direct a Doctor Strange movie, an interesting claim from Badass Digest has popped up. In an article reporting the director announcement, the site says that they "have also heard that Marvel likes (or liked, I don’t know what the current status of this is) Jared Leto for Stephen Strange." The article speculates that the entirety of Phase Three will be unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con this year, and says to "expect Derrickson - and whoever is playing Strange - to take that [Hall H] stage." Previous actors rumoured to play Strange include Johnny Depp and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but nothing has been set in stone. Leto recently won an Academy Award for his supporting role in Dallas Buyers Club after taking a break from acting. This is still a rumour, but he certainly has the chops to pull it off, with a big acting range. What are your thoughts?
