Deadline reports that Chiwetel Ejiofor will be appearing in Marvel’s Doctor Strange as the villain Baron Mordo. Chiwetel Ejiofor is best known for his role in the Oscar-nominated 12 Years A Slave. Just like Doctor Strange, Mordo was trained by the Ancient One, the previous Sorcerer Supreme. However, the Mordo we will see in the film will differ heavily from his comic incarnation. Instead, Baron Mordo will be an amalgamation of multiple characters from Doctor Strange’s history akin to Whiplash in Iron Man 2. The character he will be playing has been a topic of discussion as far back as January this year when it was was announced he would be in the film. All we knew then was that he would potentially play a villain. With the original Baron Mordo so closely tied to the Dormammu, does this mean that the popular hell lord will also have a role in the film?
See Doctor Strange in theaters November 4th, 2016!
