Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Become Marvel’s Next Hero

Earlier in the week, we said one of the biggest questions going into Comic-Con this weekend was who was going to play Doctor Strange, and it appears we might have an answer before Marvel even has their panel. The Wrap reports Joaquin Phoenix is in conversations for the role, with The Hollywood Reporter saying negotiations are under way. (For more information on Doctor Strange, may we direct you to our explainer?) Still, a deal is not done, so he could definitely back out. Stranger things have happened, like, for example, I'm Still Here.
