Joaquin Phoenix as 'Doctor Strange'?

Marvel Studios are sure to have plenty of big announcements in mind for us at their panel tomorrow, and one of them could potentially be confirmation of this very story as they narrow in on their choice for Doctor Strange! The Wrap reveals that Gladiator and Her star Joaquin Phoenix "has been mentioned most often for the coveted superhero role" and "while insiders caution there is no deal in place yet, multiple sources say Phoenix is in consideration and has had discussions." If it seems surprising that the actor - who shied away from playing Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice - then you obviously don't know Marvel all that well as they're known for making unconventional casting choices and signing up actors you would never expect to see in this type of movie! This isn't confirmed of course and should be viewed as a rumour for the time being, but the site adds that scheduling issues will likely make it impossible for Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hardy to play Doctor Strange, while Jared Leto is said to be keen on directing next and Justin Theroux is busy with The Leftovers on HBO. What do you guys think?

UPDATE: The plot thickens as The Playlist have spotted something very interesting...

One of the comic book stores in CT had Joaquin Phoenix stop by. He was looking for Dr. Strange comics.

Hey @scottderrickson, Joaquin Phoenix was shopping for some Dr. Strange comics at Sarge's Comics in New London, CT last week. Is he the Dr.?

Ya know, for the longest time I wanted the guy from Grey's Anatomy to do it, Patrick Demspey because a) he looked the part & b) he wanted to do it! So I'm kinda surprised he hasn't even been in contention for anything in these negotiations?!

But yeah, Phoenix will work. He even had me convinced that he was the nutcase that he acted like a few years back. And he did so well in Gladiator that fanboys hate him to this day! So I guess he's got the chops then.
