Ethan Hawke might be Marvel's new Dr. Strange

ethan hawkedr. strangeEthan Hawke may be making a house call to the Marvel cinematic universe.

Previously, Marvel Studios was supposedly wrapping up final negotiations with Joaquin Phoenix to star as Dr. Stephen Strange, but now it appears Hawke has now emerged as the front-runner, according to This is Infamous.

Hawke is in negotiations on a six-picture deal, which would allow Strange to appear in his own solo film as well as any “Avengers” or “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies.

While Phoenix is super talented, I was never totally sold on him as Strange. I could see Hawke giving Strange a darker, more mysterious edge. What do you think?
