Tilda Swinton In Talks For A Role In Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE Movie

It seems like it has been a while since any news about Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie has made any headlines. Today that change a little when THR reported that Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Snowpiercer) is in talks for a role in Marvel’s upcoming movie about the Sorcerer Supreme. According the report, the role is for The Ancient One. Now in Marvel Comics, this has been a male character. Initially Marvel Studios was looking at male actors for the role, but has since decided to go a different way with the character. This could be a result of criticism over the lack of female lead roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So it looks like Swinton could be joining the MCU.
