Chiwetel Ejiofor Is Baron Mordo in 'Doctor Strange'

June 11, 2015


The stars of the powerful slavery drama 12 Years a Slave are getting back together, now to dress up like wizards and pretend to shoot spells at each other. Deadline has confirmed the rumor that Chiwetel Ejiofor is joining Benedict Cumberbatch on Doctor Strange, and what's more, it's said he'll play Baron Mordo. As anyone named "Baron Mordo" would have to be, Baron Mordo is a bad guy, and he has sort of a Daryl Hannah-in-Kill Bill backstory. He and Doctor Strange were trained in sorcery by the same old guy, and Mordo eventually tried kill him. Also, in this film, that old guy is being played by Tilda Swinton. Marvel is truly sparing no expense in making this our most British, impressively-acted Magic: The Gathering tournament.
