VIDEO: Chiwetel Ejiofor and Margot Robbie Address Superhero Speculation, Roles

While actress Margot Robbie is confirmed to be playing Harley Quinn in David Ayer's upcoming Suicide Squad, Chiwetel Ejiofor has only recently had his name thrown in the hat as a potential cast member for Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange. After the jump, see what each of them had to say about their roles in an interview with Collider.

The pair sat down, alongside Z for Zachariah costar Chris Pine, with Collider to discuss their new film. As the interview came to a close (around the 5:20 mark) they were asked about their future projects:

While neither had much to say, I do like that Ejiofor didn't even think about denying the possible role in Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange. Given what I've read, I'm almost certain he'll be in the film, though  I don't expect an announcement anytime to soon since the studio is ramping up for production on Captain America: Civil War. While some rumors out there point to Ejiofor playing Baron Mordo, I'm really coming around to the idea of him taking the persona of Brother Voodoo, another mystic and one-time Sorcerer Supreme of Earth.
