It is being reported that Marvel is hoping to get “Pirates Of The Caribbean” actor Johnny Depp to play the character Dr. Strange in an upcoming film. Johnny has reportedly met with Marvel execs already about the role, but he has not agreed to anything yet.
Johnny has worked with the Walt Disney Company numerous times in the past, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he decided to work with their recently purchased Marvel brand on this new film.
