Hannibal may have unfortunately been cancelled earlier in the year, but actor Mads Mikkelsen is still a busy man. He was recently revealed to be part of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story cast and now it’s rumoured that he’s about to enter talks to play a villain in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange film.
The report indicates that Mikkelsen, best-known for his roles as Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal and Le Chiffre in the James Bond film Casino Royale, has not been given an official offer to appear in Doctor Strange yet but that one will be presented very soon.
Confirmed cast members include Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One.
Thoughts on this rumour? Which Doctor Strange villain would you like to see Mads Mikkelsen play?
Note: Rogue One is currently filming and filming is rumoured to wrap up in late October, whereas filming on Doctor Strange is officially starting in November so it’s possible for Mikkelsen to be in both films.
