The news come from Broussard and president of Marvel, Kevin Feige when they give an interview to Entertainment Weekly. The two said that the star from Hannibal will play the main villain role in the upcoming movie Doctor Strange, opposing the main hero (who is Doctor Strange played by Benedict Cumberbatch).
The only detail they unveiled is that Mikkelsen will be a “lone wolf” magician who wants the Earth to be accessible to the magic realm. “Mads’ character is a sorcerer who breaks off into his own sect,” said Fiege. “He believes that the Ancient One is just protecting her own power base and that the world may be better off if we were to allow some of these other things through.”
It is known from a long time that Mikkelsen will play in the movie, but this is the first official confirmation. All of this said, we still don’t know what evil character he will play. Broussard and Feige didn’t offer information about the character, but many tried to guess it.
“No one has quite picked the name that we’ve chosen for him. It would be fun to conceal that, if we can.” said Broussard.
Doctor Strange will hit theaters on 4 November, 2016.
