You don’t hire Tilda Swinton if you’re hoping for a performance that’s even remotely ordinary. Tilda Swinton’s gotta’ Tilda Swinton, even when she’s appearing in something as carefully controlled as a Marvel Studios movie. So you probably won’t bat an eye when you learn that the Oscar-winning actress may end up playing Doctor Strange’s the Ancient One as a man.

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.

A new film from filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen is always highly-anticipated, but it turns out we're just going to have to wait a little longer for their latest effort. The star-studded 'Hail, Caesar!' which reunites the directors with George Clooney and Tilda Swinton, has been officially given a 2016 release date, and we have a feeling this one will be well-worth the wait.

Now comes word that these two A-listers will be joined by a trio of wonderful talent, including Clooney's 'Burn After Reading' co-star Tilda Swinton.

Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston star as contemplative vampires in Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive,' a story that is more tone poem than film. It is a languid, existential narrative that follows Adam (Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton), two vampires who have seemingly existed since the beginning of time and have been in love for just as long, observing the world as it evolves and devolves around them. Jarmusch brings his arthouse sensibilities to the vampire genre, removing the focus from needless stereotypes and finding the humanity in the inhuman.

Tom Hiddleston playing a vampire? It's as if the 'Only Lovers Left Alive' trailer knows the 'Thor' foe's fan base all too well. Loki Hiddleston stars as a rock star/vampire/goth type whose wife Tilda Swinton lives across the ocean, though the two reunite for some blood popsicles.

The first trailer has arrived for Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive,' in which Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play eccentric vampires reunited after years of being separated on two different continents. There's lots of big hair, sunglasses, rock music, and blood -- obviously.
