    If he doesn't get Doctor Doom, I'd like Rufus Sewell for Doctor Strange.

    According to rumors over at CHUD, Justin Theroux is up for the role.

    I hope they cast an older actor for Dr Strange. My choice would be Viggo.

    If they decide to go a little younger for Strange (though he'd be 40/41 when they would film the first film)

    Thoughts on Bradley Cooper?

    [​IMG]


    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.

    LOL, back in the day this dude was getting suggested for Tony Stark ALL the damn time.

    "He was awesome in the Mummy and has a goatee, he'd be PERFECT!" :funny:

    Oded Fehr is definitely a good choice. But I still think Viggo is the way to go.

    ^^^^

    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.

    I don't know how others feel, but I've always thought that Matt Bomer would be a great choice as Doctor Strange. I'm thoroughly entertained by his work on White Collar & he's shown really good range in his portrayal as master forger/conman extraordinaire Neal Caffrey.

    Just my suggestion...

    If Luke Evans doesn't land Batman, I'm all for him playing Dr. Strange.

    I just saw Star Trek Into Darkness so I'm on a complete Benedict Cumberbatch high, so my vote goes to Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Hell, I want Cumberbatch to be in any Marvel movie at this point. I want Cumberbatch's voice in any Marvel movie at this point. Cumberbatch for Rocket Raccoon, Cumberbatch for Groot, Cumberbatch for anybody, man.

    I thought he was pretty good.

    I absolutely adore Cumberbatch as an actor. Have done since I first saw Sherlock when it was 1st aired here in the UK. The guys so good [not to mention unique and interesting] that he'd be great in most roles and I'd love to see him in a Marvel movie (much like I'd like to see Michael C. Hall too]) and while I've previously endorsed him playing Strange on here in the past someone has since suggested him as Victor Von Doom and to be honest, from that moment, I just cant get past how perfect that would be.

    I've recently gone with Cooper for Strange but hey, I wouldnt exactly be crying in my pillow if Benedict was given the Eye of Agamotto.

    Digging this dusty old thread back up, since Dr. Strange has been confirmed for an SDCC 2013 official announcement next month, and the boards are lighting up about it everywhere but here.

    I can't link to CBM, as everyone here knows, but just search a few of the articles on the front page. Especially from TheDailySuperHero, who's got a lot of info about the emerging details of the Dr. Strange movie. Eh Maybe (aka El Mayimbe) also weighs in, for those who actually still give him any credibility, and willingly "reveals" plot details on his Vimeo channel, beginning with Part 1 this week. HEAVY SPOILER ALERT, if there's any truth at all to Eh Maybe's source, but the story sounds plausible so far:

    Apply Occam's Razor here:

    Which is the simplest situation?

    An already discredited blogger and BS artist somehow gets ahold of a copy of a million dollar script for a movie that will, at the earliest be in pre-production in 12 months, is allowed to read it and post it online without a little jingle from the Marvel Legal Department....

    or....

    A discredited blogger, BS artists and liar hears some random crap, perhaps gets a few old notes from early drafts, concocts a wild scenario to bring clicks to his fundraising project with no jingle from Marvel Legal....

    One cut from Occam's Razor says that #2 is the obvious answer.

    I'm not a fan of Eh Maybe at all, and he's likely to be full of b.s.; but, as you say, it's probably based on old information that may or may not still be part of the working draft. In any event, the main thing I wanted to do here was to bring back discussion of Doc Strange, since what *isn't* b.s. is the fact that this movie is now A Thing, and will officially be named as such at SDCC next month, and we're starting to get some info and speculation about it now at long last.

    Point taken and received! And Doctor Strange was the very first comic I was allowed to have a subscription for! I grew up in a VERY VERY VERY small and isolated Adirondack Mountain town and got into comics around grade 6. The very first Marvel comic I bought was an issue of Powerman and Iron Fist, the issue with "El Scorpion" - can still picture that cover....but this was the day when Marvel still had that little page you would cut out (that makes collectors cringe!), fill out, and mail in with a check....I loved the name Doctor Strange, had no idea who or what he was, just liked the name...

    Pisser came when I realized it was bi-monthly! Imagine a 10 year old having to wait 6-8 weeks for his first comic in the remote (read HillbillyLand) hinterlands. When that first issue hit my mailbox I was hooked! LOVED Strange!!! It was issue 60 of the late 70s/early 80s series. Had a full cover low-angle of Strange and the story was how he was in "Despair" from losing Clea, after she went back to the Dark Dimension.

    Loved the character because he had a romantic side as well as a side that could do some serious S****!!!

    So, Doctor Strange, welcome to the MCU!!!!

    (And Jon Hamm IS Doctor Strange!!!)

    I still think Rufus Sewell should be Strange.
