The fan-rage combined with lame ass Borat/Superhero jokes would ruin the internet for months. MONTHS!

That said, I don't think he'd be too bad if he played it straight.

You think? I guess. I think it'd be cool to see him in a role like Dormmamu or maybe Mephisto.....really use his voice. But I'd be fine whatever they could get him to do.


To me, Javier Bardem would be the best Mordo they could get

I'll try casting (pun intended) some of Dr. Strange's friends and foes.

Wong: John Cho

As someone smarter than me said, "Wong should be Strange's Watson, not his Alfred."

Clea: Kate Upton

I don't know her acting ability yet, but she seems pretty cool in those "Making of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition" shows.

Sara Wolfe: Navi Rawat

Her Pre-Ass-Kicking One Liner: "I'M AN ACCOUNTANT!"

Morganna Blessing: Emmy Rossum

Morganna was written into the Dr. Strange book as someone who would be perfect for Strange, if not for the whole "Sorcerer Supreme" thing.

What do you guys think of Hugh Dancy as Doctor Strange? His performance is brilliant in Hannibal.


or if they want to go to the unknown (sort of) route, Oscar Issac

They won't go too unknown since Strange isn't like a real household name, even compared to Thor.

I don't think so either, but who knows? They'll probably go with someone that's not too unknown, but maybe lesser known to the audience if that makes sense.

Don't shoot me, but I couldn't help but think what about Chiwetel Ejiofor for Stephen Strange? I know everyone fan casts him for Black Panther, but I think he could potentially be great as lead actor of a franchise like this.

Also introduce him in a mid-credit scene from Winter Soldier as a doctorCap consults to help with WS's deprogramming... Just a thought.

I know that might deviate a little from Dr. Strange's occupation in the comics (if he's a world class surgeon) but it could work maybe. Or have him consult Dr. Strange for another reason that's surgical-related...

Eh, if they change the race of Stephen Strange, it'll probably be a Latino actor with names like Gael Garcia Bernal, Oscar Isaac, Diego Luna, Rodrigo Santoro and Eduardo Noriega as likely candidates to be Dr. Strange if they go the Hispanic route. Isaac, Bernal and Luna are my top three if they go that route. Of course, that all depends of if any of them want to play a superhero and we don't know that yet.

Ejiofor (who has expressed interest in playing a superhero, although nobody has asked him) my top pick for Black Panther.

I could see them going Hispanic or Asian for Strange too, but I just really want Ejiofor for anything with Marvel TBH. I have no idea when Black Panther will be coming out; I'm certain it's in development, and I do kind of worry that he'll age out of the role.

Yep, pretty much in my top pics for T'Challa as well. I just want him in a movie ASAP!

But I do think they could do some interesting things with Dr. Strange, especially to diversify the MCU, since he and his supporting cast are really not so well known.

I'd be totally down for John Cho/Maggie Q/etc. joining this project too. Marvel's severely lacking in Asian representation.

He's only 36. He's younger that Ruffalo and RDJ.

BP is a much more physical role than theirs, as he won't be entirely replaced with CGI for the action scenes. But I agree, he's still got a few years before he ages out of it.

He could be T'Chaka or one of the villains if he ages himself out.

I think Peter Capaldi would be a fantastic choice. Too bad he'd likely be busy playing that other Doctor...

Top choice is still Jake Gyleenhal.

Sasha Baron Cohen would be just the kind of RDJ/Tony Stark left-of-field casting choice that I'd expect from Marvel. The guy is criminally underated as an actor and I think he'd hit it out of the park. Shame he had to leave the Freddie Mercury biopic as he would have hit that one out of the park also.

Yeah, I just want Marvel to get off the proverbial pot and announce a BP movie and get it cast before my choices for T'Challa aren't really viable anymore LOL!

Sasha Baron Cohen, eh? I actually really dig him as an actor, but OMG could you imagine the board 'splosions if that actually went down?

Actually, now that I'm picturing it, I almost want Marvel to cast him just to watch the board blow up LOL!

Cohen is a decent actor from what I've seen in his roles where he's not acting like a goofball(hell, even in Les Mis and Sweeney Todd he was somewhat comedic), but yeah when a guy known for comedy gets cast in a "serious thing" fanboys do not dig it.

SBC would actually be great in the MCU, but maybe in a more villainous role. He just has that face and demeanor.

I'd be all for a hispanic Dr Strange, would help break up all the white in the MCU, Oscar Issac would be good, or Edgar Ramirez.
Hell Antonio Bandaras would make an amazing Stephen Strange in my honest opinion, could be like casting RDJ
still kinda annoyed Maria Hill is the whitest person they could find. Moreena Baccarin or Rashida Jones would have been better.
