That Doctor Strange movie is shaping up into quite the little art film.
Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton is thisclose to joining Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch in one of Marvel’s most eagerly awaited blockbusters.
Swinton would play the Ancient One, a Tibetan mystic who guides and mentors the Cumber-stud’s Stephen Strange – a selfish-type of neurosurgeon recovering from a near-fatal car crash – in the art of becoming the Sorcerer Supreme, a.k.a. the planet’s mystical defender.
Let’s note for a sec that the character was originally a dude in the comic books.
Doctor Strange is due in theaters on Nov. 4 next year.
