Amy Landecker lands mystery role in Doctor Strange

Filming of Marvel's upcoming 2016 release Doctor Strange is currently underway, and it's already considerable line-up of talented stars just got bigger and better. The Wrap is reporting that Amy Landecker has joined the cast in a mystery role. The actress currently stars as Sarah Pfefferman on Amazon’s Emmy-winning series Transparent, and Doctor Strange will be her first foray into the superhero genre.

With details of Landecker's character being kept under wraps, early speculation as to who Landecker will be playing is ranging from Mistress Death to simply another student of the Ancient One. Whomever it turns out to be, adding talent is never a bad thing, and Doctor Strange has it in spades.

Directed by Scott Derickson and starring Landecker, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg and Mads Mikkelsen, Doctor Strange is released in UK cinemas on October 28 2016 before opening in US theatres on November 4 2016.
