When asked where she is in the deal with Marvel she responded:
She was also asked what intrigued her with the role and she stated:
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.
