Joaquin Phoenix as Doctor Strange? The Wrap thinks probably so… You know what? I think I could see that.
As Marvel finalizes surprises for its Comic-Con panel on Saturday, the rumor mill regarding “Doctor Strange” has reached a fever pitch and the actor who has been mentioned most often for the coveted superhero role is none other than three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix, multiple individuals close to the casting process have told TheWrap.
Representatives for Marvel and Phoenix had no comment.
While insiders caution there is no deal in place yet, multiple sources say Phoenix is in consideration and has had discussions
One of the comic book stores in CT had Joaquin Phoenix stop by. He was looking for Dr. Strange comics.

Hey @scottderrickson, Joaquin Phoenix was shopping for some Dr. Strange comics at Sarge's Comics in New London, CT last week. Is he the Dr.?
