Joaquin Phoenix Breaks Silence On DOCTOR STRANGE

Without going into great detail, actor Joaquin Phoenix has finally addressed rumors that he was almost Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme, and he also reveals certain comic books he's fond of. Check it out!



Though Benedict Cumberbatch seems to be all but confirmed to lead Marvel's 2016 Doctor Strange adaptation, actor Joaquin Phoenix was reportedly in talks to play the Sorcerer Supreme at one point, before those talks eventually fell through. Well, during an interview with Playboy magazine, the three-time Oscar-nominated actor finally addressed the casting rumor. "I can't talk about it," Phoenix started. "I’ve met on all sorts of movies throughout the years. What seems appealing about some of them is the idea of pushing myself in a way that’s out of my comfort zone. But really, it’s what I’m always looking for—good characters, big ideas and a passionate filmmaker. If those things line up with any kind of movie, I have interest in it." When asked if he has ever regretted turning down a role in a big movie, maybe a different Marvel movie or even Batman v Superman, Joaquin Phoenix admitted there is one. "There’s only one movie I regret saying no to—except the person who ended up doing it was so good and was absolutely meant to do it, so I don’t have any regrets. I’m not going to say which one, but it was a really big hit. It’s getting to the point where they’re making some pretty decent movies. I thought Iron Man was fantastic."  Furthermore, Joaquin Phoenix was asked did he like comic books growing up, to which he replied,  "There’s some great Batman stuff and classic Frank Miller Dark Knight stuff and Arkham Asylum. But I was always a big Wolverine guy. I love Wolverine—big [frick]ing great dramatic character. They’re all conflicted, and they’re really interesting." What do you think?

Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange is scheduled to hit theaters on November 6, 2016!
