Yes, it’s like playing yo-yo when we’re discussing casting rumors for Doctor Strange. The names range from Jared Leto to the recent Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston. Now it looks like it’s circulating back to Joaquin Pheonix again.

According to Collider, Phoenix is in the final talks to portray the Marvel magician. What’s with the hold up? The actor wanted freedom to be in other film projects. (If you’ve watched Her and The Master, then you should get the idea.) The site also says that Marvel should be making an official announcement any day now.

With all the many different actors rumored to play Strange, are you excited about this?
