Tilda Swinton Confirms role in ‘Doctor Strange’

Screen Crush recently interviewed actress Tilda Swinton on the news that she was in talks to play The Ancient One in Marvel’s Doctor Strange alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. 

When asked where she is in the deal with Marvel she responded:

We’re so far in talks that we’re not talking any more [laughs]. It’s done. The conversation has been had.

She was also asked what intrigued her with the role and she stated:

Well, there’s no particular interest in getting into something bigger, or even smaller, I just really liked the premise of this and the idea of playing this character. I’m a Marvel fan and I think this particular world that Doctor Strange goes into is really, really, really exciting. I’m really interested as both an actor and a fan to see what’s done in this particular world. It’s all about creativity. It’s not about everything exploding at the end. It’s about something very different. The idea of playing The Ancient One is really just too tickling. I can’t say no to that!

It seems like not only has she confirmed the role, but she also is very excited to take part in a Marvel film. This casting of her in the role would be one of the most drastic changes Marvel has made seeing as The Ancient One is a male character in the comics. This is a big change, but fans are still excited to see a high caliber actress such as her join the Marvel ranks.

Doctor Strange will be released on November 4th, 2016.
