Rumor: Viggo Mortensen is Dr. Strange in Thor: The Dark World?!

The rumors for the next phase in Marvel films have finally hit and it's not the most far-out there idea. Most of the rumors I will talk about in years to come won't turn out real or pan out. Some get through the filter as real and happen. This rumor that Viggo Mortensen could take the mantle of Dr. Strange in Thor: The Dark World should be taken more seriously than others because of the source.

The source is (believe it or not but do) is a twitter feed by an person named Roger Wardell, who has confirmed some reliable information in past way before the official statement. So, I will take this rumor more seriously knowing that.

He tweeted:  "“Inside News: There’s something “Strange” about Thor: The Dark World" and in a separate text "“Inside News: Marvel is negotiations with Viggo Mortensen for an unspecified role in one of their Phase 2 films”"
So naturally, put the tweets together and boom a good casting call that does make sense. Take it as you will, but Dr. Strange is a bigger character in the universe and a script for a solo film has been in development for a few years now. A few domains have been bought in Strange's name a while back. He is coming sooner or later.

Just know this all means nothing for now and is just rumors but it would make the most sense to introduce audiences to him though a known franchise and go off into a solo film in the phase three of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
