Variety is reporting that Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen is in "early talks" to play a villain in Marvel's 2016 Doctor Strange movie. No word is given on what Marvel character Mikkelsen would play, but Chwitel Eijofor is already confirmed as Baron Mordo to Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange.

The Hollywood trade says that Mikkelsen was previously considered to portay Thor: The Dark World's primary antagonist, Malekith, but his casting in Hannibal made him unavailable for that film's shooting schedule.

Doctor Strange is scheduled to open in theaters November 4, 2016.
