We still don’t know who will be donning the cape to play Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel movie, but another name is apparently in the running – Ewan McGregor.
Doctor Strange is just one of the announced upcoming Marvel films that fans cannot wait to see. Captain America: The Winter Soldier teased us when Agent Sitwell stated that Stephen Strange was on S.H.I.E.L.D’s list of people they want to kill. It was then announced that Scott Derickson (Sinister) will be directing.
The main role though has been anyone’s guess. Joachim Phoenix was supposedly in talks, but the star decided against taking the role, which is a shame as we feel the talented actor would have knocked it out of the park.
Other names have since been mooted. Stars like Keanu Reeves, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy, but none have come to fruition.
Now, it looks like Ewan McGregor could be up for playing the Sorcerer Supreme. It’s rumoured that the Scottish actor is currently in talks with Marvel. McGregor isn’t new to starring in huge films; he portrayed Obi Wan Kenobi in the three Star Wars prequels. He first came to prominence in the Danny Boyle film Shallow Grave, which was then followed-up with the hit Trainspotting.
What do you guys think? Would McGregor be good as Doctor Strange? Let us know.
