The latest rumor du jour concerning a Marvel movie has to do with their sorcerer supreme showing up in Thor: The Dark World. If you read between the lines of what someone on Twitter is saying, the magician known as Dr. Strange will appear in the next Thor movie.

If true, such a move would set the stage for Strange to get his own spinoff film at a future date.

The story goes like this: a Twitter user with the name of Roger Wardell has been leaking insider scoops about Marvel movie developments for months. A good chunk of what Wardell is tweeting has also turned out to be true, which leads one to suppose that his sources are inside the walls of Marvel Studios.

On August 19, Wardell tweeted that Marvel was in talks with Lord of the Rings star Viggo Moretensen about an "unspecified role" in one of their phase 2 movies. That could make the job in question for the sequels for Captain America, Thor or Avengers.

Then a couple of days later Wardell followed up with this more cryptic tweet: "There's something 'Strange' about Thor: The Dark World."

Now, do the math and one can't help but speculate that Mortensen is being eyed to play Dr. Strange. With his black hair, penetrating stare, commending presense (hell, he played Lucifer once in The Prophecy), Mortensen certainly looks the part. Marvel's Dr. Strange is one-part hero, two-parts creepy, and the gravity that Mortensen brings with him to his roles would certainly be used if he were to play the comic book hero.

But would Viggo Mortensen consider signing up for a potential ong-term part? If the report is indeed true and Marvel is scouting him to play Dr. Strange, they would certainly want him to sign up for possible appearances in The Avengers 2 and perhaps his own Dr. Strange movie or two (or even three.) Would the Oscar-nominated actor want to go that route now with his career?

One has to only look at how Iron Man has helped elevate Robert Downey Jr.'s showbiz career to the A-list to see how things could work out for Viggo. Downey embodied the part of billionaire playboy Tony Stark with his own real-life bad boy persona. Perhaps Marvel is thinking of the day when Downey doesn't want to suit up as Iron Man and they are considering an A-level actor to shepherd the Marvel Cinematic Universe from 2015 and beyond.
