Thoughts on Bradley Cooper?

He'd pull of pre powers Strange for sure, as he's played similar characters before. But he definitely has a much wider range, and has started to really show it.....especially in Silver Linings Playbook, which he was fantastic in.

Plus as someone who was born in Philadelphia, it'd be kinda cool to have one of our own play one of the very few heroes "born" here too....probably wouldn't effect much....but it'd make me happy to get even one reference to it ha.

One of those brilliant suggestions that makes you feel dumb for not thinking of it first.

I like it a lot. Ticks so many boxes it's unreal.

Good actor? Check.
Would look similiar to the character? Check.
Name recognition (but no so much of a star that it would be a hindrance)? Check.
Female fan-base? Check.

Don't be ashamed of the source material when making your adaption. EMBRACE it.
