Is Chiwetel Ejiofor starring in 'Doctor Strange'?
Chiwetel Ejiofor could be joining the Marvel universe.
The "12 Years a Slave" star is in "early" talks with Marvel to take on a role in their forthcoming "Doctor Strange" movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Though the character isn't known at this time, some are speculating it's a villain while others (including THR) have him pegged as Wong, a monk servant of the title character who is skilled in the martial arts.
Scott Derrickson ("Sinister") is directing the film, which will hit theaters on Nov. 4, 2016. It's slated to shoot after Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War."
