Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I actually think Tom Cruise might make a good Doctor Strange. He could convey the arrogance of the pre-accident Steven Strange and has a sort of ageless look to him - young enough to still be the lead but old enough to be experienced doctor.

Plus it might get him out of playing Jack Reacher, for whom he is horribly miscast!

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I always envision Strange being a fairly tall guy. At 5'7" Cruise would be a bit too short. Depp is 5'10", that's just tall enough. Bradley Cooper at 6'1" is more like it.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

^ I just want him to drop out of playing the 6'5" Jack Reacher! lol. But height aside, I think he could manage a decent Strange. Not that it's likely to be on the radar.

That's what the Cloak of Levitation is for . . . .

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.
Depp. This is probably the one mainstream Marvel character he is most suited to play.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I'd love to see a Doc Strange movie done well. He's always been one of my faves.

As for the actor, how about that guy who played Baltar on nuBSG and Doctor Old Spice on Eureka?

You are joking? I hope.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

You guys think Sean Penn would ever do something like this? Or ever approached to do something like this?

^ Sean Penn might have been an interesting Wolverine. There was also a rumour that Nolan wanted him for The Joker for TDK. But something like Dr Strange? I can't see him doing it.

He is, but not too long ago he was also in talks to play Larry in The Three Stooges revival.

You mean James Callis? He isn't conventionally handsome enough to play a lead superhero. But a villain or second banana would be perfect for him, assuming he's high profile enough to be considered for such a role, which he probably isn't.

Superheroes need to be conventionally handsome like Chris Evans, or if they're somewhat off-kilter characters, they can be unconventionally handsome like Robert Downey Jr. But the acceptable range is very narrow. The likes of Jeff Goldblum are entirely off the menu.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

^Off the top of my head, in the not-conventionally handsome department there's been Michael Keaton, Michael Chiklis, Ray Stevenson (Punisher), Ed Norton (Hulk) and Downey. And Daniel Craig, if you count James Bond as a superhero (he kinda is).

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Of that list, only Chilkis can't qualify even as unconventionally handsome, and the Thing isn't a lead character. I've always thought Keaton and Norton are pretty attractive guys (not so sure about Keaton nowadays, but back in the day...)

Some folks think Craig is good-looking. I think he looks like he got his butt switched with his face, but that's just me. Anyway, to call Bond a superhero is a pretty big stretch.
