The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to get bigger and bigger every year and, while we continue to get movie sequels from already established characters, we also get new Marvel characters appearing on the big screen every year. One character that fans have been eager to see for years now is Doctor Strange and there has been a lot of talk about the movie happening for years now.
Marvel have been working hard to get a Doctor Strange movie off the ground for quite some time now and it finally looks like we are going to get one in the near future. Casting for Doctor Strange has been ongoing for the past few weeks and months and it was thought that Hollywood star Joaquin Phoenix was the favourite for the role, with the actor currently in final talks with Marvel.
However, there have been a few rumours doing the rounds over the past couple of days which seem to suggest that Joaquin Phoenix has been stalling on signing up for the movie, as he is going to reject the role. The rumours claim that Joaquin is not too keen on the multi-picture deal he will have to sign, while also not being a fan of doing green screen, visual effects, and many reshoots.
Marvel still seem very eager to get Joaquin Phoenix on board but, if the actor does get cold feet, that will leave them having to find themselves a new Doctor Strange star, preferably someone not afraid of the Marvel Studios blockbuster machine.
