Morgan Freeman Among Those Eyed For 'The Ancient One' Role In DOCTOR STRANGE

Three names have emerged as being in the running for the role of The Ancient One in Doctor Strange, and they're all very different as you can tell from The Dark Knight actor mentioned in the headline! Hit the jump to find out who might join Benedict Cumberbatch...


Now that Marvel finally have their Doctor Strange, they're begining to cast other key roles in the Scott Derrickson helmed movie. There's been talk of it not being an origin story, but it appears as if that may have been incorrect due to the fact that the studio are now zeroing on actors for The Ancient One (a character who played a major role in Stephen Strange's early years). According to Latino-Review, Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption), Bill Nighy (Shaun of the Dead), and Ken Watanabe (Godzilla) have all been approached to play the man who helps turn the scarred surgeon into the Sorcerer Supreme. Who do you think is the right choice to play The Ancient One?
