Let the revolving casting door games begin! Following last week’s news that Sinister director Scott Derrickson will take on Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange film, I wondered if the February casting rumor about Mads Mikkelsen still had any value…and barely a day passed before a Jared Leto’s name was thrown into the mix. Now Deadline is claiming that Pajiba favorites Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch are at the top of Marvel’s wishlist to play the “Sorcerer Supreme.” Both actors have a certain great combination of perceived unpredictability and darkness, and both are pretty decent box office draws, so it’s not difficult to picture either of them taking on the role. But as with all early rumors and regardless of inside information claims, take all your delicious rumors with that proverbial grain of salt.


Party on, Wayne…
