Before Benedict Cumberbatch was announced as securing the role of Dr. Stephen Strange, it seemed that just about every actor in Hollywood was rumoured to be in contention for the lead in Marvel Studios’ Phase Three franchise launcher Doctor Strange.
Among the list of candidates was Ewan McGregor, and the British actor has confirmed that he was in the running for the Sorcerer Supreme during a chat with MTV News:
“I was into it. I thought it was exciting. I’m not a big comic guy so I didn’t know who Doctor Strange was, but I was intrigued by it and I like the idea of creating or being a superhero character. They didn’t [go with me], but it was fun to be part of the mix for a while.”
So, it seems McGregor is open to a superhero role should one come his way. Which character would you like to see him play? Let us know your thoughts…
