Plenty of rumors have been swirling about actors joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The latest one suggests that Doctor Strange actor Mads Mikkelsen will be taking up a new role in the MCU.

Everyone from Ryan Gosling to Cillian Murphy has been rumored to join the MCU in recent months. However, Mads Mikkelsen may be the first rumored to rejoin the universe in a new role. According to Hollywood insider DanielRPK, the Doctor Strange actor is in talks to play a new character after his villainous turn as Kaecilius, though the role is being kept under wraps for now.

While it hasn’t been disclosed what role Mads Mikkelsen is in talks for, it’s more than likely Doctor Doom given the proximity his casting would be to the filming of Fantastic Four. The actor certainly has enough experience for the role, given Doctor Doom is a master of the mystic arts like Doctor Strange and Kaecilius. However, fans will ultimately have to wait and see if Mikkelsen ends up taking this new role, whatever it is.

What we know about the Fantastic Four movie

The Fantastic Four reboot is expected to be a fresh take on the classic Marvel characters, with a new cast. Matt Shakman is directing the movie from a screenplay by Josh Friedman. It is currently scheduled to hit theaters in 2025.

John Krasinski played the Earth-838 variant of Reed Richards in Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but his future as the character is currently in doubt. Krasinski’s wife Emily Blunt has said that she’s hopeful we’ll see the actor back as Richards for Fantastic Four.

Fantastic Four opens on May 2, 2025.  Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
