30 Dec - Executive producer Stephen Broussard revealed that Mads Mikkelsen will be involved in the cast of "Doctor Strange" opposite Benedict Cumberbatch's titular character.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel boss Kevin Feige said Mads' character is a sorcerer who breaks off into his own sect and believes that the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) is just protecting her own power base and that the world may be better off if we were to allow some of these other things through."

There has been much speculation as to which character the Danish actor will be playing, "I've seen lots of names thrown around," says Broussard. "No one has quite picked the name that we've chosen for him. It would be fun to conceal that, if we can."

The pair further elaborates, "We will take audiences through sort of a guide to the multiverse, other dimensions, and there are amazing things out there - wonders that are going to be hopefully visually extremely interesting and unique to this movie."

"But there are also very scary things in these other dimensions," Feige adds.

The movie which is due for release in November will also have Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor starring among other names.
