According to new reports, the part of 'Baron Mordo', the main mystical villain from Marvel Studios' upcoming "Doctor Strange" feature film has been cast:
"...actor Chiwetel Ejiofor ('12 Years A Slave') is reportedly set to play 'Baron Mordo' in Marvel Studios' 'Doctor Strange' film..."
'Baron Karl Amadeus Mordo' was created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator/co-plotter Steve Ditko, debuting in Marvel Comics' "Strange Tales" #111 (August 1963).
Mordo has vast magical abilities derived from his years of studying black magic and the mystic arts. He can manipulate magical forces for a variety of effects, including hypnotism, mesmerism, thought-casting, and illusion casting.
He can separate his astral form from his body, allowing him to become intangible and invisible to most beings. He can project deadly force blasts using magic, can teleport inter-dimensionally, and can manipulate many forms of magical energy.
He can tap extra-dimensional energy by invoking entities or objects of power existing in dimensions tangential to Earth's through the recitation of spells. He can also summon demons, but often does not have enough power to force them to do what he wants them to do.
