Late yesterday came the news that "Sinister" and "Deliver Us from Evil" director Scott Derrickson would take the helm of Marvel's "Doctor Strange" project.

Now, Badass Digest adds that recent Oscar winner Jared Leto is (or was) being eyed to play the title character.

In fact it would seem he has been under consideration for some time, but it's not known if the studios are still pursuing him.

The site adds Derrickson originally came onboard the project as a writer only, and the tone will be similar to that of "Iron Man".
