Johnny Depp in Early Talks for Doctor Strange?

Disney's 'The Lone Ranger' UK Film Premiere- ArrivalsLatino Review is reporting that Marvel Studios has taken a meeting with Johnny Depp to discuss him potentially starring as Stephen Strange in their long gestating Doctor Strange film. This remains a rumor for the time being, as Variety claims "such talks have yet to take place and any possibility of such a pairing is premature.​" Check back here for further updates on the matter as we learn them.

A film based on Doctor Strange has been in development for some time, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously saying: "He checks the box off this criteria that I have: he’s totally different from anything else we have." Marvel has already set release dates for three untitled films in 2016 and 2017, could one of them be Doctor Strange?
