Update: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s reps have denied the rumor for the time being. The original story follows:
The future for Marvel’s movies is very mysterious. With three untitled films dated for release in 2016 and 2017, many fans have been speculating about what is to come in “Phase 3.” Doctor Strange is one of many characters who has been rumored for a Phase 3 movie, mostly due to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige’s very public interest in the property.
Now, Latino-Review is reporting the rumor that Marvel Studios wants The Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play the titular character in the film. Levitt was previously considered for the Star-Lord role in Guardians of the Galaxy, which does lend some credence to this rumor, but do keep in mind that this isn’t official and that talks with the actor may not have even begun.
