Doctor Strange is definitely a movie that everyone is looking forward to. Joaquin Phoenix is still considered a hot favorite to play the sorcerer but rumor has it that Ethan Hawke is a possible contender too.
It just so happens that Scott Derrickson who will be directing Doctor Strange, also directed the movie Sinister which starred Ethan Hawke.
The rumor has been reported by an extremly unreliable site ( Variety’s Marc Graser has already debunked it). In an interview with MTV News, Hawke confirms that he would be very interested in playing the Marvel character if the filmmaker were to offer it to him. However, it’s also clear that he hasn’t been approached.
