Now, the J.K. Rowling-written, David Yates-directed production is seeking out its female leads and a batch of surprising names have emerged as potential candidates.

For all those who’ve said that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a far too male dominated landscape...well, you’re right. But, it looks like Marvel is at least trying to work on that and has made one big, exciting step forward in the right direction. Oscar-winning actor Tilda Swinton is in talks to star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange as The Ancient One, a role originally written for a male.

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe about to enter “Phase Three,” expect things to get a little weird. The arrival of a Doctor Strange movie signifies just how weird, since the mere thought of a dimension-hopping sorcerer inhabiting the same world as Steve Rogers and Tony Stark seemed impossible just a few years ago. In fact, the debut adventure of Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme may very well be the film that smuggles one of the wildest comic book concepts of all time into the MCU. Is Stephen Strange ready to grapple with Death itself?

Warner Bros.
The classics of this genre featured danger and destruction on a scale a guy could wrap his head around; a hijacked airplane, a skyscraper on fire, a capsized ocean liner filling with water. But when you live by spectacle, you die by it too. And so the disasters got bigger and bigger, one movie trying to top the next, until it became an arms race of planetary devastation. One movie blows up the White House, the next one washes it away in a tidal wave. Where do you go from there? An exploding tidal wave? At this point, if your disaster movie isn’t eradicating a large portion of the globe, don’t even waste your time.

Last time Deadpool and Wolverine got together on the big screen, things didn’t turn out so great. The less said about that, the better. But the new Deadpool solo movie looks like it’s finally going to do the character justice, and if Ryan Reynolds gets his way, we’ll also get a little added bonus to help make up for that whole X-Men Origins: Wolverine thing. Oh, sorry, I said we weren’t going to talk about that.

Vincent D’Onofrio is now officially a career movie and television villain to the point where, even if the big twist in a movie revealed D’Onofrio as the bad guy, we’d all roll our eyes and say, “Well, obviously.” The actor will now use his particular set of skills to take on the role of lead villain in Dax Shepard’s upcoming big screen version of classic cop series CHiPs.
