It's being said that Joaquin Phoenix is in final talks to play Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie.

Among the rumored names includes Jared Leto, Johnny Depp, Jon Hamm and Jack Huston.

Regarding the latter two, Hamm said he was never approached by Marvel, and now it is said Huston isn't true as well.

The Collider is stating that Joaquin Phoenix singing for Doctor Strange is just about a done deal: "essentially at the 1 yard line, about to pass into the endzone."

News first hit about Joaquin Phoenix playing Doctor Strange about a month ago, with it speculated that it has taken so much time for Phoenix to sign to ensure his contract will enable him to do other independent projects.

No release date has been announced as of yet, Scott Derrickson will direct, and it is also rumored that the Doctor Strange movie will not be an origin story.
