Could Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice in Wonderland star Johnny Depp soon add another quirky Disney-owned character to his filmography?
"A well-connected source informed me tonight that Johnny Depp has taken a meeting with Marvel to discuss taking on the role of Dr. Strange," claims Latino-Review.
They say Marvel's eager to land Depp despite the commercial failure of last summer's The Lone Ranger and that they would even rework the script's thirty-something Doctor Strange to better fit the 50-year-old actor.
However, as the site wisely cautions, "while Depp has met with Marvel, and both sides want this to work, it doesn’t mean it will."
Doctor Strange, a longtime favorite of Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, is a Marvel Phase 3 project, meaning it likely wouldn't hit theaters until at least 2016. Depp currently has Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and Alice in Wonderland 2 on his docket of upcoming projects.
