The news that Joaquin Phoenix was in talks to play Doctor Strange first emerged during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Some fans expected an announcement from Marvel that weekend, but we would hear nothing more about the movie until a later report which claimed that the Her star had entered “final talks”.
Those obviously weren’t that final as Phoenix is no longer in negotiations to play the Sorcerer Supreme and the hunt is back on for another actor to take on the iconic role in the movie rumoured for a 2016 release.( well most people already saw this coming...Collapse )

also reports say ethan hawke won't be dr strange even tho he said he'll love to join scott derickson in this movie. So Benedict rumours can start again or Jared Leto. Marvel has NYCC coming up if they want to make an announcement, or after AoU trailer but probably before December
