Mads Mikkelsen Eyes ‘Doctor Strange’ Villain Role

Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to play an antagonist opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.” No details yet on who Mikkelsen would play, but it would be a safe assumption that he’ll play Dormammu based on the character’s significance in comics and alongside Baron Mordo, who will be portrayed by Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Marvel Studios has been interested in casting the actor in one of their properties. Mikkelsen had been eyed to play Malekith in “Thor: The Dark World,” but the role went to Christopher Eccleston.

If Mikkelsen accepts the offer, he would join Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the Scott Derrickson directed film set for release on November 4th, 2016.
