Dr Strange in Thor 2?

Drew Taylor of The Playlist (Indie Wire) discussed the second phase of the Marvel cinematic universe. During his conversation he dropped some fun Marvel rumors that had come across his desk this summer (Marvel never verifies, so it tends to be speculative at best) and one of the more fascinating grapevine dispatches they heard was that Dr. Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel universe, would be a big part of "Thor: The Dark World" (then simply called "Thor 2"). The following is his article that pieces together the Doctor Strange rumors out there:
"Marvel love their Easter Egg teasers, and The Eye of Agamotto, the name commonly given to Doctor Strange's amulet, was spotted in the original "Thor" movie by keen fans (just like a "Black Panther" reference was spotted in "Iron Man 2," etc.). And so like Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner) being teased briefly in "Thor," one of the fun rumors we'd heard was Dr. Stephen Strange (the heroes alter ego) was going to appear in "Thor 2" in what would be somewhat of a substantial role. Some geeks shrugged, some took it (as they probably should) with a jumbo-sized grain of salt. Fair enough.
However, the rumor is beginning to build traction and could be on to something. A Marvel Studios-leaking Twitter account named Roger Wardell -- who has apparently been on the money with early news about Falcon appearing in "Captain America 2" and Sebastian Stan reprising his role as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier as well -- has been tweeting out again. Two new tweets have caught the eagle-eye of fans. One that suggests what we heard earlier this summer ("Inside News: There's something "Strange" about Thor: The Dark World") and another unconnected tweet that talks specific actors ("Inside News: Marvel is negotiations with Viggo Mortensen for an unspecified role in one of their Phase 2 films")".
