    I guess an official thread should be created to discuss who will he be...in a perfect world, he would be Victor Von Doom...the absolute PERFECT choice to be Doom...but it looks like he will be somebody else so who? Dormammuu? Nightmare? Somebody else? Made up?

    So far we know:

    And what we saw in the teaser.
    These descriptions don't seem to fit with someone like Dormammu, but there is no clear indication of who he could be.
    I've heard theories about
    - Kaluu
    - Modred
    - Entropic Man
    - Magus
    - Imperator of the Empirikul
    and some others. But honestly, I'm lost. I have no idea who he might be.

    My hope is we don't have villains associated with others. Given that, I'd rather not have the Entropic Man or Modred (the former for Swamp Thing, the latter because of his connection to Morgen Le Fey). Same goes for Magus.

    Kaluu is one of my first choices. It's an extremely obscure choice, but it fits the description. The Imperator of Empirikul (aside from needing a name) seems to run into a problem where I suspect first drafts of the script predate his existence in comics.

    I've heard suggestions of Kaecilius, which would require significant changes for who he is since he was basically a follower in the comics.

    Really, there's a lot we don't know. I'm sure whoever it is, unless it's Nightmare, isn't going to be well-known to anyone, but I'm sure that'll give them flexibility to just do whatever they want to fit the movie.

    Seeing as they've made big changes to every character that isn't Strange, it's really impossible to tell. To the point where I doubt there will be a straight answer until we've seen the movie.
    Even if he did have a recognisable name, it wouldn't be a straight up adaptation.
    Mordo may be called Mordo, but they've even said he's a mix of characters. In Civil War I doubt anyone would have known for sure Daniel Bruhl was Zemo if they didn't give him that label.

    Mads was on 'Good morning Britain' the other day, and he had this to say about his character:

    There have also been some pictures on Tumblr of him in costume on set, will put in spoiler tags just in case.

    I think his character somehow will turn out to be Mephisto

    maybe he really just is a random sorcerer and is an unwilling agent/host for dormammu? or he started off discovering "dark arts" or whatever and just slowly loses the internal battle to him/corrupted?

    Yes perhaps he is Dormmamu in human form

    I was thinking that he was Belasco earlier on but it seems his rights are tied up at Fox. So I'm going to go with Kaluu at the moment.

    Theres a post on reddit mcu sub today that sounds pretty legit who he is.

    I wont give it away, if you want to know, go to the thread about cast leaks from marvel. Its not in that bogus OP but further down.

    The one about him being Doctor Druid or Kaecilius?

    Kaecilius seems like a decent guess, but I don't buy the Doctor Druid thing just because the whole leak post on reddit sounded pretty fake.

    Him being Doctor Druid would be an interesting twist though.

    I wonder when we'll find out who he's actually playing. Maybe in the next trailer?

    I hope so. Unless it's one of the more famous characters, any reveal will be anticlimactic. Doesn't make sense to keep it a secret.

    I have to admit, the Mordred suggestion has kind of grown on me lately. Kaluu seems like it would be opening themselves up for more whitewashing complaints. And maybe its just me, but Mikkelsen's character seems like he has a medieval European look about him from what we've seen.

    That picture... The tunic, the boots... I am starting to think they are going with another student of TAO who gets possessed and I think the eye make up indicates... Nightmare.

    My two cents.

    Here's a question, do you think we'll find out before the movie comes out? This seems unnecessarily secretive for someone who, by best guess, is going to more or less be an "in name only" type character.

    The amount of TV spots/promo Marvel puts out makes me doubt it will be a total secret all the way to the movie.

    Unless his story is changed a *lot*, I can't really see it, for a first movie at least. Doing even a loose adaptation of Sise-Neg would require delving *deep* into the history and backstory of the entire universe; I can't see them doing it in a movie that already has to introduce all the rules of magic.

    I think we'll find out at Comic Con assuming Marvel goes. Barring that, my next guess would in the next trailer or a cover story on the film in one of the film magazines.
