Before he was in Doctor Strange Mads Mikkelsen Was Up For Role In FANTASTIC FOUR! but being the smart guy that he is he walked out on them.
It’s no secret that Mads Mikkelsen is an amazing actor and various comic book films have tried to get him to star in the films but it was Doctor Strange that finally got him, but in another alternate universe it could of been much worse for him as he went in to audition for Fant4Stic… Yes the Tumor of Comic Book Films!
Mads Had this to say
“I think I walked out on the Fantastic Four [audition]. I think I actually said, “I can’t do it. It’s not about you, I’m sorry, this is wrong.” I’ve had tons of them. We’ve all been there. We all show up and it’s a little office room with a desk and some books and they want you to do a scene where you have two lines – maybe not even two lines – maybe just “Bleurgh!” or “Get back!” And you’re hiding behind a palm tree that’s not there. It’s like, “Guys, couldn’t you have picked a different kind of scene to this? This is [frick]ing mad.” You feel like an idiot.”
Obviously we don’t know who he would of been but the bet is Doctor Doom… you know the walking trash bag from that “film”
