RUMOR: Viggo Mortensen Wanted For Doctor Strange In THOR: THE DARK WORLD?

ScreenRant (via ThePlaylist) has the idea that the role Marvel wants Viggo Mortensen (Lord of The Rings, Eastern Promises) for is actually Dr. Stephen Strange. It's been reported by different sources including ThePlaylist that Strange would be Jane Foster's (Natalie Portman) colleague in Thor: The Dark World. Strange ends up becoming an important supporting character in the film. Joel Edgerton (Warrior, Zero Dark Thiry) has also been linked for the role. The Thor sequel is about to begin production so this news will likely be confirmed sooner rather than later.

The rest of the cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccelson, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Stellan SkarsgÄrd, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson and Zachary Levi. Alan Taylor of Game of Thrones is directing a script from Don Payne and Robert Rodat with a release date of November 8th 2013.

Strange would be an important piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe puzzle. Since he'd get his own film which already has a script in place and could join the Avengers in it's sequel. Marvel has previously introduced characters in a similar manner so it's very likely this is happening. During the release of Thor in Odin's vault The Eye of Agamotto was spotted. The relic is linked to Strange and is yet another tidbit fuelling this rumor.
