Viggo Mortensen And Aldis Hodge Taking Marvel Roles?

ThePlaylist has picked up on a Marvel insider's Twitter account that has been revealing tidbits which includes a second source confirming that Doctor Strange is expected to have an important role in Thor: The Dark World. They mention that Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, Lord of The Rings) is currently in negations for role in one of the Phase Two movies. Viggo has had a history of talking but exiting rather large projects lately. He turned down the Zod role in Man of Steel and the Huntsman in SWATH. Marvel could be aiming him to tackle a villain as he'd only be contracted for a few films. There is already speculation that Viggo could be pursuing the role of Dr. Stephen Strange which would see him join the cast of the Thor sequel.

Another interesting bit of casting includes up and coming actor Aldis Hodge is now on Marvel's radar. I'm sure like many before him he's been testing for Black Panther and Luke Cage. Hodge's credits include Die Hard 3, Leverage and Friday Night Lights.
