Joaquin Phoenix is playing hard to get, or maybe he's just being careful about signing on to a mega-blockbuster like Doctor Strange. You be the judge. Last week it was reported that the talented actor was in final negotiations to star in Marvel's Doctor Strange, but it looks like those reports might've been a bit premature.
Phoenix has been in-talks with Marvel for some time now. The studio hoped to announce him as Doctor Strange during their Comic-Con panel, but since they couldn't close a deal, that didn't end up happening. Today, the two are still having some issues.
According to BadAssDigest, Phoenix just doesn't know if he'll able to handle such a big project. Saying yes to Doctor Strange isn't all rainbows and butterflies. This is a big time commitment, that also includes 'pre-viz and fight-ciz and green screen and massive reshoots.'
“The problems that have kept the deal from closing remain, »

A demon has traveled from the sands of Iraq to the streets of New York City and is possessing people with a body-bending, tongue-hissing intensity. Only a world-weary police officer and an unconventional priest stand in its way, and you can see them face off in a spiritual smack-down when Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil hits home media just in time for Halloween.
Deliver Us From Evil comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on October 28th with the following special features (via Blu-ray.com!):

With part of Marvel Phase Three and all of Marvel Phase Four unannounced, aside from a slew of mysterious release dates that span until 2019, many fans are wondering which projects will be slotted into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of the few projects that hasn't made it out of the development stage yet is Black Panther, which we reported last month is wanted by the fans more than Iron Man 4.
During an appearance at Fan Expo Canada over the weekend, Marvel legend Stan Lee confirmed that Marvel is still working on a Black Panther movie, while also hinting that the studio is working on a stand-alone movie for Scarlett Johansson's character Black Widow.
"We haven't made a Black Widow movie but she's been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie »
Joaquin Phoenix has been circling the title role in Marvel’s Doctor Strange for a while now, and he was supposedly nearing a deal just before San Diego Comic-Con in July. Late last week, we heard that after some long talks with the studio, the three-time Academy Award nominee was in final negotiations for the role… but a new report suggests that he may be getting cold feet.
Not only is Phoenix reluctant to sign one of those famous multi-film Marvel contracts, but he’s supposedly uncomfortable with the way big-budget blockbusters like this are made and may in fact back out of his talks altogether.
The report comes from Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, whose sources tell him that Collider’s report about the final negotiations last week may have been premature. Marvel wanted to get Phoenix to sign on for the role in time to announce it at Comic-Con, »

Last month, we reported that actor Joaquin Phoenix was in negotiations with Marvel Studios to play the title role in Doctor Strange, with a new report emerging this week that the actor is close to finalizing his deal. While he still hasn't signed on the dotted line yet, Badass Digest has a new report about why the negotiations are taking so long.
When we spoke to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige last month, he revealed that they are "close" to casting Doctor Strange, but he also cautioned that an announcement was not "imminent." This new report reveals that Marvel was hoping to bring Joaquin Phoenix onto the Comic-Con stage to announce his casting, but the deal wasn't cemented at the time. While he remains in negotiations, this new report reveals that the actor hasn't signed on yet simply because he isn't sure if he can work in the superhero genre. »
There have been numerous reports that Marvel is in active talks with Joaquin Phoenix to play the lead role in the studio's upcoming "Doctor Strange" film. Now comes word that the actor may pass on the offer. According to BadassDigest, Phoenix is interested, but isn't convinced that he can take the role. Not only will it require lots of green screen work, but he'll have to sign a long multi-picture deal. Scott Derrickson (Sinister) is directing "Doctor Strange," which is set to hit theaters on July 8th, 2016. »
Contrary to recent reports, many just can't see Joaquin Phoenix - who apparently passed on the Lex Luthor role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - starring in Doctor Strange for Marvel Studios. He first became what sounded like a frontrunner for the Scott Derrickson helmed movie during Comic-Con, and it appeared as if he would be announced at the event just like Mark Ruffalo was for The Avengers a few years ago. That obviously didn't happen, but according to Badass Digest (via IGN), that was the plan! The site goes on to add that, "That weekend a Marvel Studios insider told me they had tried their hardest, that they had pushed as hard as they could, but they couldn't close the deal in time." They also confirm Collider's claims that he's still in talks, but caution: "[The] problems that have kept the deal from closing remain, and they go »
(Cbr) Joaquin Phoenix is rumored to be in final negotiations for the lead role in "Doctor Strange." Collider reports that three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix is currently in final negotiations to star in Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange" film. Phoenix was rumored to be in negotiations for the role as recently as July, but this is the first report of a deal getting to the final stages for the starring role of the upcoming Marvel film. His previous credits include "Gladiator," "Walk the Line," "Her," "The Master" and more -- he was also approached by Warner Bros. to play Lex Luthor in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice." The character was teased as recently as "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," when Agent Jasper Sitwell called out "Stephen Strange" as one of the people of interest that Hydra might target to preemptively strike out at. When discussing the call-out with Cbr News in April, »

Marvel Studios is expected to officially announce the casting of its Sorcerer Supreme shortly, according to Collider.
The Master star was reported to be in line for the movie at San Diego Comic-Con in July.
Scott Derrickson is directing the comic book adaptation, which centres around the proud-surgeon-turned-mystical-protector.
Marvel is reported to be moving away from origin films and launching directly into the story of Doctor Stephen Strange in the movie.
Marvel is yet to announce which of its earmarked release dates will be put aside for Doctor Strange. »
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a rapidly expanding entity that evolves and deepens with each successive entry the mega-franchise receives. After two fantastic Marvel Studios productions earlier this year, fans and general moviegoers can rest assured that the on-going series will continue to thrive and flourish for many years to come. Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians Of The Galaxy successfully demonstrated (once again) that the studio can consistently produce original material, that stands out against the fierce competition.
With that in mind, audiences are frequently looking ahead to what Marvel have in store for us next year and beyond with their future ‘phase 3′ releases that are currently lined up. Doctor Strange is an adaptation that has been name-dropped several times in the past by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. However, it is only recently that the film has finally started showing signs of life after spending years as »

The three-time Oscar nominee for Gladiator, Walk the Line, and The Master has been mentioned before as one of the contenders for the role of Dr. Stephen Strange, but Collider reported today that Phoenix is in final talks and sources close to the film confirm to EW he is their top choice for the role.
Marvel did not immediately respond to request for official comment, but studio president Kevin Feige has long talked »

We reported just over a month ago that Joaquin Phoenix had entered negotiations to play Doctor Steven Strange, but the fact that his deal still hasn't been finalized lead to a number of other casting rumors, including this week's report that Jack Huston is in contention for the coveted role. However, Collider reveals there is no truth to Jack Huston being in contention, since Joaquin Phoenix is very close to signing on.
It isn't known how many movies Joaquin Phoenix is signing on for, since most actors in Marvel Studios movies typically sign on for multiple movies at once. For instance, Samuel L. Jackson signed on for nine movies, while Chris Evans' deal is for six films. The site speculates that the deal is taking a long »
Last month it was reported that three-time Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix was at the top of Marvel’s wishlist for Doctor Strange, and that he was in negotiations with the studio. Now Collider is reporting that those talks are about to be concluded, and that Phoenix is in final negotiations for the title role.
“Despite rumors to the contrary, we’re hearing that Phoenix is absolutely still in line to play Doctor Strange in the Marvel adaptation, with our source telling us that his contract is essentially at the 1 yard line, about to pass into the endzone. Though some believed the length of time it’s taken for Phoenix to finalized his deal was »

Earlier today, Collider editor Frosty teased that his site had a big scoop to drop today, and here it is: Joaquin Phoenix is in final talks to play the title role in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange movie, slated for release on July 8, 2016 with Scott Derrickson at the helm. Rumors have been swirling around the project for months, touching on everyone from Benedict Cumberbatch to, most recently, Jack Huston. In July there were reports that Phoenix was in the running, but that died down when there was no casting announcement at Comic-Con (Some people thought Cumberbatch’s attendance was evidence that he had been selected, but again, no dice).
Interestingly, Collider’s post sparked a Twitter war among the sites that trade in these secrets, with Latino Review’s El Mayimbe the most stridently in opposition, going so far as tweeting a screen grab of a text from a source, »

It looks like the search for Marvel’s Doctor Strange may be coming to a close, as Collider reports that Joaquin Phoenix – who was first rumored to be in contention for the role last month – is in final negotiations to play the Sorcerer Supreme.
“Despite rumors to the contrary, we’re hearing that Phoenix is absolutely still in line to play Doctor Strange in the Marvel adaptation, with our source telling us that his contract is essentially at the 1 yard line, about to pass into the endzone.”
The site also notes that it’s taken a while for Phoenix’s negotiations with the studio to finalize, mainly because the actor doesn’t want his Marvel contract to restrict his »

Recent weeks have proven fruitless in terms of an official announcement from the studio, with a rumour surfacing in the past couple of days that Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) is circling the role. But rumours being rumours, especially when it comes to comic book movies, you have to take things with a pinch of salt.
And whilst the same goes for this latest news, the source is much more reliable, with a source close to the project describing Joaquin Phoenix as being very close to signing a contract to take the lead as Steven Strange, better known as Doctor Strange.
The character was of course name-dropped in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this year when »
