Marvel Said To Deny The Johnny Depp Doctor Strange Rumor

Last night saw a new rumor hit suggesting that Johnny Depp is in talks with Marvel Studios for Doctor Strange.
Now the rumor is refuted - by technically another rumor - as Variety says sources tell them no such talks have taken place.
The reason cited is ironically the same reason Latino Review is said to have shot down another rumor about Josh Holloway for Batman Vs. Superman, and that is a scheduling conflict.
Variety says Johnny Depp has several films lined up with Disney including the next Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice In Wonderland.
I suppose it's possible Doctor Strange could be set after those, possibly 2016-8, as Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man Tales has a 2016 release.
