Édgar Ramírez Has Talked About ‘Doctor Strange’ Role With Scott Derrickson

Marvel Studios has been making significant progress with Doctor Strange in recent weeks, signing up Scott Derrickson (Sinister) to direct and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) to write the script.

The title role of the Sorcerer Supreme has been linked at various times to Johnny Depp, Jared Leto, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tom Hardy, but the studio has yet to lock down an appropriate actor to lead this project that might be a more difficult sell with audiences than even Guardians of the Galaxy. One person who can willingly admit to talking about a potential role in Doctor Strange is Édgar Ramírez, the Venezuelan actor who recently stepped into the role originally cast with Gerard Butler in the upcoming Point Break remake.

Ramírez has also worked with director Derrickson before on the horror film Deliver Us from Evil, which is scheduled to open early next month. During an interview with IGN’s Jim Vejvoda to promote Deliver Ramirez was asked if he had been approached by Derrickson to appear in Doctor Strange. “We’re talking,” he responded. “We’ve been talking.”

That was all he had to say on the matter. Ramirez wouldn’t specify if the part he was in talks for was the good doctor Stephen Strange (who got a clever namedrop in Captain America: The Winter Soldier for those of you attentive viewers) himself, a secondary character, or perhaps the film’s yet-to-be-determined adversary. Ramirez’s past credits include Domino, The Bourne Ultimatum, Carlos, Wrath of the Titans, Zero Dark Thirty, and The Counselor.

Deliver Us from Evil opens in theaters on July 2, 2014.
