EXCLUSIVE: The 3 Contenders For 'The Ancient One' In Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'

– by L-R

I've been holding on this information for the last two weeks and now I've been given the green light

I'm hearing from multiple sources that Morgan FreemanBill Nighy and Ken Watanabe have been approached for the role of The Ancient One in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” which is scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016.

Just last week Marvel made it official that Benedict Cumberbatch will play Doctor Stephen Strange.  It is unlear how much of a big role The Ancient One will play since its been said that there will be no origin story in the film. For those of you who don't know who The Ancient One is, he's the mentor of Doctor Strange, the previous "Sorceror Supreme," and - in the comics - ends up training and rejecting Mordo, a character heavily rumored to be the villain in Marvel's adaptation. 

Stay Tuned.

Let us know what you think.
