Tilda is apparently set to play Strange's immortal mentor The Ancient One.

The character is traditionally depicted as an old bearded man, but after they couldn't find the right fit, Marvel decided to cast a wider net and go with a bolder choice!

Innerestingly, this will be the SECOND time Tilda has taken on the role of a previously male character in a comic book movie; in 2005 she played the archangel Gabriel in the Keanu Reeves version of Constantine.

Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson and is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.
