Earlier this year, Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen had spoken about his experiences with Marvel which were both good (the villain in Doctor Strange) and the bad which was the actor’s experiences at an audition for Fantastic Four.
Back in the previous interview, Mikkelsen had stated he walked out of the Four audition but speaking to Screen Geek, the actor has set the record straight on what he meant, saying:
“I didn’t walk out. When I left it, I was just like – this is crazy. I don’t even have long arms. What am I doing in here? The audition was only about long arms. No lines. I felt a little funny,”
More recently, news has spread that a Doctor Doom standalone was in the works and that Mikkelsen’s name has again been linked to the role – which he hasn’t ruled out just yet, saying:
“Yeah, it’s always interesting. They are experimenting with doing some of the villain’s stories as well. Let’s see if they do that. I’m not familiar that they’ve done it with anyone yet. They haven’t done it with The Joker [and] they haven’t done it with The Penguin. So we’ll see when that day comes,”
Is a Doctor Doom standalone a good idea? Well, if Mikkelsen was cast it would certainly perk up our interest but this could well be a non-starter.
Mikkelsen was last seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and will next be seen in drama Arctic.
