Colin Farrell has reportedly entered the mix for the role of Doctor Strange in Marvel Studios’ upcoming film about the mystical superhero says The Wrap.
Farrell is one of several names that have reportedly entered the mix for the part alongside the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keanu Reeves, Jared Leto, Justin Theroux and Oscar Isaac.
If Farrell takes the part, he could jump into the role right after he wraps production on the second season of HBO’s anthology series “True Detective” early next year. Marvel wants Cumberbatch as well but his scheduling may prove a major issue.
Joaquin Phoenix’s publicist insists any talk of the actor playing the role is “dead dead dead. A couple of weeks ago they mutually decided to part ways. It was over before the New York Film Festival.”
