30 Seconds to Mars
frontman Jared Leto
might score a major role in the near future, as the musician/actor is reportedly considered to take the part of Dr. Stephen Strange
for the new Marvel comics movie.
reports, Devin Faraci
of Badass Digest dropped the rumor that Marvel is quite fond of the recent Academy Awards winner for Best Supporting Actor."Marvel likes (or liked, I don't know what the current status of this is) Jared Leto for Stephen Strange,"
he said. "God help us all if that's true."
As far as Dr. Strange goes, the character has first appeared back in the 1960s as a former neurosurgeon now in charge of protecting our planet from different magical and mystical threats.
Leto took a five-year break from acting to focus on his band, which has released its fourth album "Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams
" last year. Jared never had the opportunity to play the role of a superhero, so the Marvel stint would likely come as an interesting endeavor for the vocalist.
