 Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to play a role in the upcoming Doctor Strange. Not a lot of information about the specific character that Mikkelson would play is out right now but there is talk that he may be be playing a villain. Some think he might play the powerful Dormammu or the even more powerful Mephisto.

Mikkelsen once was up for a role of another Marvel villain in the movie Thor: The Dark World as he almost nabbed the role of Malekith The Accursed but would up being too busy by his schedule with the show Hannibal.  The Story of Doctor Strange focuses on an arrogant neurosurgeon named Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), as he gets into a terrible car accident that leaves him unable to use his hands. Strange begins a journey around the world searching for a cure. This leads him to The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), and it is in his training with the mystic arts that he eventually becomes the Sorcerer Supreme we know as Doctor Strange.

Chiwetel Ejiofor also joins Cumberbatch and Swinton in the film while Rachel McAdams may possibly be joining as well. Doctor Strange is set to be released November 4, 2016.
