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.
Other candidates for a Hispanic Dr. Strange would include Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna, Rodrigo Santoro, Demien Bichir (if they want to go a bit older) or (maybe) Javier Bardem.

I'm leaning towards some Brits here with my preferences being Jude Law, Rufus Sewell or maybe Luke Evans.
Overall prefer Jude Law, he's missing a franchise beyond Sherlock Holmes and right there we have a connection to Robert Downey Jr. He can play cocky and charming like a surgeon and person who could be called 'sorcerer supreme'. Right age, very decent actor... it's all there for me.

Still thinking that Cumberbatch is due a Marvel movie and would fit Strange like a glove.

Hellz yeah. It could be difficult to have Strange be an all-knowing authoritative type without him coming off as an unlikeable dick, but Cumberbatch has proven in Sherlock that he could pull that off in spades, not unlike RDJ as Stark.

Dr. Strange has a stache and there is no proof that Cumberbatch can grow facial hair.

Of the realistic choices, I'd go with Benedict Cumberbatch, Adrien Brody or Jim Caviezel. Joseph Fiennes has also been a choice of mine for a long time. Richard Armitage would be great if he wasn't already used in a Marvel movie.

i'm backing Jake Gyllenhaal. i think he's "soulful" looking enough to pull off Strange; who i associate with world weariness. it'd be like Donnie Darko surviving with the knowledge of just how messed up the reality is around him but having to keep it to himself. plus, i think he'd be a draw to those unfamiliar with marvel continuity; much the same way Paul Rudd's casting has helped Ant-Man. my original choice was Viggo Mortensen. he'd make a great Strange, imo. but there are several other ways he could be used; as a villain, for instance.

The first book with Dr. Strange in it I ever read, he vaguely looked like Robert De Niro to me. So, he's always had De Niro's voice and mannerisms when I read him. I can't see that actually working in a film--especially as old as De Niro is these days, but that's always who "played" him in my mind while reading the comics. *shrug*

How about Aiden Gillen, who plays Lord Petyr "Little Finger" Baelish in Game of Thrones?

There's a really great anecdote on Tumblr about RDJ coming over for dinner with Depp's family, and Depp watched as Jack Sparrow "left my son's eyes, and was replaced by Iron Man."

That said, I'm tired of Depp's weird dude schtick, so if he's got it, they'll need to sell me with the rest of the cast and the director.

NOT BURTON!!

Always thought Depp was a really obvious, uninspired choice for this role. Good actor, but I have no interest in seeing him as Strange. Here's hoping they don't pursue him if that's true.

But what's wrong with it being obvious? If he can play the part like it needs to be played, then I say let him play the part. Not every casting decision by Marvel has to be some out-of-the-box idea.

Fantastic idea. I've supported Depp as Strange since I saw The Ninth Gate.
Seriously people, if you haven't seen The Ninth Gate and can't see Depp as Strange, watch that.

That casting makes alot of sense. Would be an impressive addition to this already insane cast Marvel has if true.

I guess I just feel like I can picture him doing his usual blockbuster schtick in a slightly different persona; whereas I'd like to see someone bring something fresh to the role and surprise a bit - I also picture him and RDJ desperately trying to out-quirk one another. Of course it's possible he could be fantastic and subtler if he got the role and I could just be being an assumptive prick though, ah dunno.
