Could Dr. Strange be making a cameo in Thor 2?

We already know that Marvel is going to be doing a Dr. Strange movie, but now there are rumors that as a tie-in to that future film, Strange could be making a cameo in Thor 2. Maybe. 

However, the rumor is beginning to build traction and could be on to something. A Marvel Studios-leaking Twitter account named Roger Wardell — who has apparently been on the money with early news about Falcon appearing in “Captain America 2” and Sebastian Stan reprising his role as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier as well — has been tweeting out again. Two new tweets have caught the eagle-eye of fans. One that suggests what we heard earlier this summer (“Inside News: There’s something “Strange” about Thor: The Dark World”) and another unconnected tweet that talks specific actors (“Inside News: Marvel is negotiations with Viggo Mortensen for an unspecified role in one of their Phase 2 films”).

Screen Rant has put two and three together to come up with the idea that Viggo Mortensen could play Dr. Strange. Hell, we suppose he could be on their wishlist. We’d heard (as discussed during our podcast) that Marvel Studios’ first choice for the role was Joel Edgerton, soon to be seen in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” and Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby.” (We’d all heard that Steven Moffat and Benedict Cumberbatch had met with Team Marvel about something and we hoped and prayed and wished upon a star that they were there for “Dr. Strange.” Apparently this was not the case.)

So is all this building evidence towards the inevitable? Hard to say, though personally we wouldn’t doubt that Marvel would want to build up their heroes in this way. However, Viggo is a notoriously independent fellow, and in the years since he hung up his sword and shield after the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, he has taken a notably atypical path. He’s done three movies with David Cronenberg, played a Nazi in a little-seen historical drama, appeared in a couple of documentaries, and starred in the troubled, imperfect adaptation of literary sensation “The Road.” Not exactly the kind of dude who would jump at the chance to be locked into another multi-year, multi-film arrangement.
