Viggo Mortensen will not play Doctor Strange

Rumours were flying around thanks to tweets from @RogerWardell that Viggo Mortensen could be playing Doctor Strange in Thor: The Dark World. Those rumours are apparently false.

Marvel producer Victoria Alonso spoke with Omelete to dismiss the rumours.

We would love to work with Viggo Mortensen. I’ve been trying that for years,” said Alonso. “But I don’t know if Viggo is even acting anymore. I thought he wasn’t acting anymore. It would be great to work with him in the future, but we don’t have him signed, no.”

In case you’re wondering Viggo Mortensen is still acting, just not for Marvel. Further proof that @RogerWardell is most likely a prankster and not a Marvel insider.

With the hype surrounding Marvel at the moment, it’s not surprising how fast the rumours spread. Justice League is currently going through the same irritating problem with directors being announced one day and then the news being scrapped the morning after.

If you’re itching for something Thor related, a group of on-set pictures have been leaked along with some brief video footage. For those of you that prefer to wait for the real thing the film will be released 8th November 2013.
