What's up guys and gals,
According to an interview Tilda Swinton had with the good people over at Screencrush. It appears she has confirmed her much rumored role in the upcoming Doctor Strange film.
Check out the interview below:
Is your Doctor Strange deal done, or are you still in talks with Marvel?
No no no, it’s done. We’re so far in talks that we’re not talking any more [laughs]. It’s done. The conversation has been had.
What was it specifically about Doctor Strange that intrigued you?
Well, there’s no particular interest in getting into something bigger, or even smaller, I just really liked the premise of this and the idea of playing this character. I’m a Marvel fan and I think this particular world that Doctor Strange goes into is really, really, really exciting. I’m really interested as both an actor and a fan to see what’s done in this particular world. It’s all about creativity. It’s not about everything exploding at the end. It’s about something very different. The idea of playing The Ancient One is really just too tickling. I can’t say no to that!
Besides the obvious, how will your portrayal of The Ancient One differ from what we might be used to?
You know, I don’t know yet. I haven’t quite figured it out. I will let you know when I know. It’s a bit of an adventure to figure out how to finesse this. But it’s exciting.
Marvel contracts are notorious for multiple sequel clauses. Did that ever worry you?
Not at all. It’s like a family thing. Who knows where one might pop up. I don’t know where they’ll use me and I don’t know that they know, necessarily, even though they seem to know what they’re doing for the next decade. I think it’s like holding on to the tail of a galloping horse at this point.
The highly anticipated film will be the 2nd film in Marvel Studio's phase 3 plans. Benedict Cumberbatch will play the title role of Doctor Strange while Chiwetel Ejiofor is set to play a villain in the film.
Marvel's phase 2 of films ends this weekend with the release of Paul Rudd's ANT-MAN.
Doctor Strange hits theaters on November 4th, 2016
