Joseph Gordon-Levitt Rumored Frontrunner for Doctor Strange

Sorcerer Supreme, plus song-and-dance man when asked? Maybe so, as Marvel supposedly is looking at Joseph Gordon-Levitt to enter their so-called "Phase 3" of films as the magical Doctor Strange. LatinoReview claim Marvel haven't yet gotten up the courage to approach JGL, as he's just so darned charming, but word is "execs internally are discussing that Levitt is who they figure would be ideal." Given the actor's rising stardom, the rumor isn't really that hard to believe, but for the same reason, it seems somewhat unlikely he'd agree to the meager offers and lengthy commitments the studio has become famous for.

Either way, here's the Don Jon trailer again for a taste of Gordon-Levitt's chemistry with our Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson. Pretend it's Avengers 3 by imagining porn is magic and Tony Danza is some kind of galactic demigod. Haven't you kind of already thought those things anyway?
