It’s been since rumored that Adrien Brody (Predators, King Kong) was in talks to play the lead in Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man film. But a new rumor has surfaced according to Avengersnews, who claim that the actor been meeting with Marvel for another superhero role… one that involves being the master of the mystic arts and the Sorcerer Supreme — Dr. Strange.
Here’s what they had to say:
A source of ours is telling us that Adrien Brody is very close to signing a deal with Marvel that could see him playing either Ant-Man or Dr. Strange. Now, this isn’t the first time that we’ve heard his name and Ant-Man’s in the same sentence. Other sites have reported that before. What we’re being told is that we might hear an announcement about one of these characters soon. Stay tuned.
I think Brody playing Dr. Strange is a much better fit than Ant-Man. Not only does he look the part, there’s no doubt that he has the acting chops to pull it off. Personally, we haven’t heard anything substantial about this news, so consider it a rumor for the time being. In the meantime, what do you think about Brody as Dr. Stephen Strange?
