The Curious Case Of Johnny Depp And Dr. Strange

Depp-Strange1(PCM) There have been quite a few rumors circling the web that actor Johnny Depp has been in talks with Marvel to take on the role of Dr. Strange. A recent report for the Latino Review is claiming that both Depp and Marvel have met and had discussions about Depp taking on the role.

The Latino Review’s Mario-Francisco Robles, claimed that if Depp does take on the role of Dr. Strange, there is going to have to be quite a bit of scheduling “gymnastics” as he is also tied to another Pirates of the Caribbean film, as well as, Alice In Wonderland 2.

Marvel is owned by Disney, which the studio behind both the Pirates and Alice In Wonderland franchise, so rumor has it, if Depp signs on for Dr. Strange, then the production schedule for the next Pirates film will have to be shifted around a bit.

Initially, the Latino Review story was confirmed by the trade publication Variety, agreeing that a meeting between Depp and Marvel did indeed take place. Now, Variety is back-pedaling the story claiming that no meetings or talks have taken place and the pairing between Depp and Marvel is still premature.

Deadline added their two sense to the rumor mill as well, claiming that Depp was contacted by Marvel but it never went anywhere. So, the question remains…will we or won’t we be seeing Johnny Depp as Dr. Strange? Guess we will have to wait and see!
