DAMN! This sounds like it's shaping up to be a pretty badass movie!
According to various reports, 12 Years A Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor is in talks to star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the upcoming Marvel film Doctor Strange!
The reported negotiations are still in VERY early stages so no details on exactly WHICH character he's in talks to play, but there are SOME possibilities speculated.

Some sources are saying that Chiwetel will be playing a villain role in the film, but other sources are claiming that this is NOT the truth.
If the film is going to take a traditional path AKA follow the comics, the villain is likely to be Baron Mordo, who was pushed out of his next-in-line sorcerer status by Stephen Strange.
However, if he is NOT going to be playing a villain it's speculated that the role he will play could be Wong, the monk servant to the Sherlock actors character who is also skilled in martial arts.

The last possibility sources are thinking is that he COULD be in talks to play the Ancient One AKA the sorcerer supreme of the Astral Plane and the one who mentors Stephen Strange.
SO many possibilities for who he COULD be playing!
We're sure we'll be finding out some details soon, since the movie is set to be released on November 4th, 2016.
Who do YOU think Chiwetel is going to be playing??
