SwintonWell, this is an interesting rumor. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that actress Tilda Swinton is in talks to join Benedict Cumberbatch in the upcoming movie Doctor Strange. In the Marvel film being directed by Scott Derrickson, Swinton would play the Ancient One, a mystical being that teaches the former surgeon to be the Sorcerer Supreme.

Though the character has traditionally been portrayed as a male and Marvel was originally looking for a male actor, it’s said the studio changed their mind.

Doctor Strange will be in theaters November 26th, 2016.
