Jeff Goldblum has always been my pick for Doc Strange

Alas, at sixty, he's probably too old . . .

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Dr Strange is drawn as being relatively old in the comics lately... doesn't he have silver sideburns at this point?

As long as someone stops Liam Neeson and Hugo Weaving from Auditioning, I'll be happy.

Wow, cool! Doctor Strange is one of two Marvel characters whose movies I've been eagerly waiting for (the other is The Sub-Mariner, which I guess poses certain difficulties, such as how to depict a guy running around in swim trunks without it looking a tad farcical ).

Shortlist: Bradley Cooper and Johnny Depp.

Our current Bruce Banner, Marc Ruffalo, is more the Doctor Strange type to me. In an ideal world, he'd have that role and Edward Norton would still be Banner.

How about casting some other characters? Scarlett Johannson should be Clea, not the Black Widow. Umar = Angelica Huston or Meryl Streep. Dormammu should be voiced by James Earl Jones, and if he's not available, Dan Castellaneta.
Wow, that's some poor casting! I'm so glad you don't get to decide these things. Strange should be played by someone with gravitas. John Hamm would be perfect.

Still sticking with Oded Fehr as my top choice for Strange...although David Tennant might not be a bad choice, either (take a look at his stills for FRIGHT NIGHT).

We can always work in a Downey cameo as he is drinking with Strange at a party shortly before Strange crashes his car.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

As has been pointed out, Robert Downey Jr. would have been perfect if he wasn't already Tony Stark elsewhere.

Director's gotta be Guilermo del Torro, though.

Jon Hamm should just play every superhero.

Johnny Depp would be way too expensive for Marvel Studios. It would never happen. I'd like to see someone in his mid-thirties or early forties as Strange. He should be an established surgeon at the beginning of the movie.

Well we all know McDreamy himself, Patrick Dempsey is rallying for the role.

Or, crazy idea, Zachary Quinto?
I think you might be onto something here. Good candidate.

Doctor Strange

By the time Marvel might get around to this in another year or so he'll have shot Trek 2 and Strange would be a good possible character/franchise role to step into. Assuming Abrams Trek is only going to be 3 movies. He can transition from one franchise to another.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I never thought about Zach Quinto but he is possibly locked up with the Star Trek franchise for the foreseeable future unless he would have time to film stuff in between the wait. I just like Patrick Dempsey so much. It was really seeing him play a charming but kind of punk ass type character in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" that convinced me he would be perfect for the part.

I think a "Doctor Strange" film would have so much potential. I already have a visual sense of the magic and dark arts practiced in the movie. I tend to agree that Dormmamuu would probably be depicted in CGI. I'd work my damnest to make sure it was realistic as possible.
