Hooray for girl power!
I just learned this news via Paste Magazine (online only) today . . . . .
Marvel Movies has cast Tilda Swinton in the November 4, 2016 DOCTOR STRANGE film. The ever popular Benedict Cumberbatch will play Doctor Strange and take guidance from his mentor, the Ancient One, as portrayed by Tilda Swinton.
In the comics the Ancient One is a male. This is a nice change. I anticipate that Swinton will do a magnificent job. She is an incredible talent with piercing features and a commanding presence. She’s also no stranger (ha!) to genre films, having starred in ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE and SNOWPIERCER among others.
