With Comic-Con underway, there’s plenty of hype around upcoming superhero movies and one unlikely character is being thrown into the rumor mill.
According to reports on Friday (July 25), Joaquin Phoenix is eyeing up a role in a brand new Marvel movie.
The Oscar-nominated actor is reportedly the frontrunner to portray Stephen Strange in “Doctor Strange,” which follows an egotistical neurosurgeon whose hands are destroyed in an accident, leading him to find a viable recovery.
Marvel head Kevin Feige can’t wait to get the film underway and told MTV News last year that Doctor Strange is “a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he’s totally different from anything else we have, just like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’”
“He’s totally different from anything we’ve done before, as is ‘Ant-Man,’ which keeps us excited,” Feige continued.

Getting ready to fly over to San Diego, Ian Somerhalder arrived at LAX International Airport on Thursday afternoon (July 24).
The “Vampire Diaries” hunk is set to promote his CW show during this year’s Comic-Con International alongside co-stars Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley.
The encounter could be a little bit awkward since there are new relationship rumors regarding Ian and his ex-girlfirend Nina’s old pal.
Earlier this week, Somerhalder strolled around a local farmer’s market with “Twilight” hottie Nikki Reed. When Ian was still dating Nina and Nikki was still married to Paul McDonald, the four used to double date.
Though it’s still unsure if Ian and Nikki are an item, they looked pretty cozy during their casual afternoon out together.
