More comic movie casting news has surfaced! This time it’s Chiwetel Ejiofor who has reason to celebrate landing a new role. The Oscar-nominated actor will play Baron Mordo in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, reports Deadline.
Baron Mordo is a villain who first appeared in the comic, Strange Tales, in 1963. Mordo and Strange are enemies. However, Deadline says Mordo may not be what people would expect based on the comics, and that the movie character will probably be a combination of characters from the Doctor Strange Universe.
Disney is at the helm of this film, set for release in November 2016.
Are we excited about the Dr. Strange movie adaptation?
Or are we over beloved comic characters being remixed?
And is anyone else wondering when more female comic book characters will start getting real movie love?
