Tilda Swinton: Dr. Strange's Ancient One?

Ancient One

Tilda Swinton is reportedly on Marvel's radar, eyed for a most central role in Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange.

As THR claims, fabulous Tilda Swinton is in talks for playing the very mentor of Steven Strange, namely, the Ancient One.

Swinton is not the first rumored for this part. Back in December 2014, Latino Review maintained Marvel had shortlisted Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe and Bill Nighy for the role.

Back then, Ken Watanabe seemed like the obvious choice, since the Ancient One is, in the comics, a Tibetan mystique, and Watanabe was the only one who complied, race-wise that is.

Now with Tilda Swinton in the limelight, wow, talk about deviating from the comics!!! But I think Tilda Swinton might prove to be an excellent choice for this part! And here's why!

Why choosing Tilda Swinton doesn't entail gender swapping

The phrase "gender swapping" spread like wildfire: Marvel won't only "betray" the race of the Ancient One, but also his gender if Tilda Swinton is on board with Doctor Strange!

But does choosing Tilda Swinton for the Ancient One entail gender swapping?
