Report: Joaquin Phoenix Won't Be DOCTOR STRANGE, Search Renews

Doctor Strange

Well, Doctor Strange is rumored for a summer July 2016 release, but as of right now, the movie still doesn’t have a star. While Joaquin Phoenix was reportedly in talks for as much as the last three months, those talks are completely over according to Deadline.

There is no new front-runner for the role either (despite some speculation/rumors otherwise), though all the old rumors including actors like Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jared Leto could come back into play. We had our own ideas for the role back in June.

Scott Derickson is directing a Jon Spaihts screenplay for Marvel Studios, which again has no announced release date, though most in the industry are expecting Doctor Strange to take Marvel’s currently reserved date of July 8, 2016, coupling it with that year’s Captain America 3.
