Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen is said to be in early talks to play one of the villains in the upcoming Doctor Strange Movie.
Variety reports no offer has been as of yet delivered to Mikkelsen, but one is expected shortly, and that the villain role is presently unknown.
Chiwetel Ejiofor is already signed up to play one of the villains in Doctor Strange with Baron Mordo. Tilda Swinton is also on board as Doctor Strange’s mentor, The Ancient One.
This isn’t the first time Marvel has eyed Mikkelsen as the actor was said to be up for the role of Malekith for Thor: The Dark World.
We can speculate on possible Doctor Strange villains Mikkelsen may be up for including Dormammu, Xandu, Nightmare, Mephisto, Chthon, Kaluu, Zom and D’Spayre.
Doctor Strange has a November 4, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange.
