Default Re: Doctor Strange Casting Poll

Maybe but why take the risk? You know that Depp or Keanu can make job done. You know that people like them.
I don't really view someone like Fiennes as a risk. He is recognizeable, and is a proven actor... He doesn't have major mojo like Depp or Reeves, but, as you said...

... you also know that Doctor Strange is not the most popular guy among comic book fans.
He is not the most popular guy at all... thus, a major hollywood name may heavily over-shadow the character. As in, Dr. Strange being seen as a Johnny Depp movie, rather than about Dr. Strange the character.

I think I prefer someone like Fiennes, but again... Jim Caveizel is my top pick.
