Ethan Hawke’s name has reputedly been added to the mix of people linked to the title role in Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” movie, and in fact may be further along than expected.
This Is Infamous reports that Hawke was offered the role on Friday and accepted the job over the weekend. Things quickly progressed into contract talks with a six-picture deal linked to the actor.
It’s a plausible rumor, Hawke previously worked with the film’s director Scott Derrickson on 2012’s “Sinister”. “Doctor Strange” is set to start shooting next year for a Summer 2016 release.
