The original Thor introduced us to Hawkeye in a cameo that lead to a major role in The Avengers and now rumors are circulating that another Marvel hero could be making his debut in Thor: The Dark World.

According to Screen Rant, master magician Doctor Strange could be fighting alongside Thor in next year's sequel. If true, Doctor Strange, aka Dr. Stephen Strange would be introduced as a scientist working with Natalie Portman's Jane Foster in an attempt to learn about Thor and Asgard. This would be slightly different from the comics where he is a neurosurgeon, but highly plausible. The rumor suggests Strange would play a major role in the film rather than showing up in a simple cameo or in the end-credits scene.

An appearance in Thor would most likely lead to a standalone film which Marvel already has a script for written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, who are behind not only 2011's Conan the Barbarian, but also screenplays for the planned Voltron and Uncharted movies. Keep in mind, Doctor Strange was one of the films rumored to be taking that August 1st, 2014 release date that ultimately went to Guardians of the Galaxy. Strange will most likely be making an appearance at some point and introducing him in Thor seems like a logical choice.

As for which actor would take on the role of Doctor Strange? The Playlist previously reported that Warrior star Joel Edgerton was Marvel's pick for the hero, but was unable to take the role due to a prior commitment on another film. Another option could be Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortenson who is reportedly in negotiations with Marvel for an unspecified role in a "Phase Two" film.

Of course, all this remains rumors as there have been no confirmations from the studio. What we do know is production on Thor: The Dark World is currently moving forward for a November 8th, 2013 release with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins all reprising their roles and Christopher Eccleston joining the cast as main villain Malekith.

Now we put it to you, our experts, do you think Doctor Strange will make an appearance in the Thor sequel and who would you like see take on the role? Give us your thoughts below or tweet us @ClevverMovies. Until next time, I'm Erin White, thanks for watching!

Johnny depp would be a perfect choice as strange 
Everybody is saying "Johnny Depp". I think Cumberbacth would be a great Doctor Strange! Oh I'm so funny

Nope, but I so want to see a Doctor Strange movie sooooo bad. This may be wishful thinking, but maybe having a former "Doctor" in the cast was a sign saying, "He's coming!" or maybe not. Who knows?
