Marvel Studios‘ talks with Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix to play Doctor Strange are kaput. He never had a deal, but Marvel already is getting into it with other actors to play that superhero in a free-standing film.

I understand Marvel’s belief that Phoenix would have been great for that role, in keeping with putting solid actors in those hero roles.
