While it has yet to receive an official release date, last week Marvel Studios decided to move forward in finding a director for its oft-speculated Doctor Strange movie. THR reported that Marvel had compiled a shortlist of directors that included Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies), Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolaj Arcel (last year's Oscar–nominated A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (the upcoming Welcome to Yesterday). It didn't take long for casting rumors to start trickling in, with Hannibal and A Royal Affair star Mads Mikkelsen recently being rumored to be in consideration, following last month's rumors that Johnny Depp had met with Marvel about the role. Meanwhile The Dark Knight Rises actor Matthew Modine has already begun openly campaigning for the role on Twitter, something Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey has been doing since 2011.
