AceShowbiz - %cTilda Swinton% wants her own solo Marvel movie. The actress reveals that she would love to reprise her role as Ancient One in a "Doctor Strange" spinoff that focuses on the mentor of the Sorcerer Supreme.
"I'm pretty confidently dropping hints in Kevin Feige's ear about a prequel, I'm constantly harassing him about that," Swinton told ScreenCrush in a recent interview. She added, "I don't know if it'll get anywhere."
Ancient One was originally a male character in the comic books. Tilda Swinton's casting was met with controversy, but it's not because of the gender-bending role. Instead, Marvel was accused of whitewashing the character, who was supposedly an Asian descent. In response, Swinton said, "The Ancient One in this film was never written as the bearded old Tibetan man portrayed in the comics."
It's unclear if Swinton will be brought back for another Marvel flick after her debut in "Doctor Stranger", but both the main actor %cBenedict Cumberbatch% and co-star %cBenedict Wong% have confirmed their return for "Avengers: Infinity War".
