Edgar Ramirez linked with a role in Doctor Strange
Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange movie looks like to reunite him with Deliver Us From Evil star Edgar Ramirez...
One of the many upcoming projects that Marvel is juggling is the long-mooted Doctor Strange movie. The film is to be directed by Scott Derrickson, and the current casting rumours are still centering on Jared Leto for the lead role. Leto has just passed on the chance to take the lead in sci-fi movie Brilliance, which adds fuel to the speculation that he may be about to sign on the dotted line for Doctor Strange.
But while the casting guesswork continues, there does seem to be at least one name that's going to be added to the call sheet. And that's the name of Edgar Ramirez.
Ramirez is featuring in Derrickson's imminent movie, Deliver Us From Evil, which arrives in cinemas shortly (we have to wait until August in the UK, though). And chatting to IGN, he was asked whether there had been any discussions about a role in Doctor Strange. Turns out, there had. "We're talking. We've been talking", the actor admitted, although no further details were forthcoming. Exactly which role they've been talking about remains to be seen.
We're looking forward to Deliver Us From Evil anyway, and we'll keep you posted as we hear more about Doctor Strange...
