Viggo Mortensen could be joining the Marvel universe as Dr. Strange in Thor: The Dark World.
While nothing is confirmed, ScreenRant posted two tweets from a Twitter account registered under the name Roger Wardell that hint at Mortensen’s involvement. While tweets certainly aren’t the best form of getting confirmation for stories like this, Roger Wardell’s Twitter has been posting very accurate insider information about Marvel’s films for several months.
The first tweet came from Aug 12 and stated, “Marvel is negotiations with Viggo Mortensen for an unspecified role in one of their Phase 2 films.” The second hinted at Dr. Strange being involved by claiming, “There’s something ‘Strange’ About Thor: The Dark World.”
