Johnny Depp

After confirming Michael Douglas will be joining the Marvel universe, rumors are swirling around Disney adding another big Hollywood star.

The Latino Review reported a "well-connected source" has told them Johnny Depp met with Marvel to discuss the role of Dr. Strange.

Dr. Strange has yet to appear in a live action Marvel film, but studio president Kevin Faige confirmed Strange would appear in the movie universe during "Phase Three," meaning post-Avengers 2. Faige later revealed Strange would get his own film.

As Latino Review notes, Depp has a good working relationship with Marvel Studios' parent company, Disney. Although The Lone Ranger was a bomb, Depp helped make the company billions with the Pirates of the Caribbean series - which he has already signed on to continue.

Honestly, I can't imagine a better role for Depp: ridiculous costumes, magic, and The Occult? That's right up his alley. Unfortunately, movies are a business - even if both sides are interested, a deal still needs to be done before we get to see Dr. Strange.
