Marvel is gearing up for the release of “Iron Man 3” in May starring Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow and a host of others. Of course you’ve got Captain America and Thor coming up. Heck even Edgar Wright’s “Ant-Man” is moving forward. One character that has seemingly gone nowhere is “Dr. Strange” but that may be changing. Reports are that Justin Theroux is in the running to play Dr. Strange. No word on whether he would be appearing in a future film, getting his own film or even that Theroux is in the running. He did write “Iron Man 2” so he has an in to Marvel Studios.
