Heh. I don't think that guy is ugly. But Doctor Strange should look a bit on the weird side.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

The finalized script for Doctor Strange has been finished. Could this be the "unnamed Marvel-1" film they have on the schedule for 2013?
This thread started with the announcement of working on the script and now it's finished and turned in it seems.

After more than a year's work, scribes Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer ( "Sahara", PS3 game "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune") have reportedly completed their work on the script for the "Doctor Strange" movie at Marvel Studios reports io9.
.....
Marvel are said to be now moving forward and actively searching for a director and key cast to take on the project for a hopeful release sometime in 2013.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Also interesting is that in the link they mention that Dr. Strange will probably have a smaller budget than the other recent Marvel films.

Maybe they'll just green screen in Ditko's backgrounds and save a bundle. By Umar's heaving cleavage!

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Don't forget Marvel/Fox have "Daredevil" in the works as well. David Slade tweeted not too long ago that there was supposed to be news coming. Most people expect a 2013 release for the rebooted film. Also "Wolverine" if it starts filming this year could be out next year as well.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I may have already mentioned this, but I think that guy who plays Duke on Haven might be a good candidate.

Just because he's skinny and has a mustache? Nah, I don't get a Sorcerer Supreme vibe from him at all. He usually plays wise-cracking, blue-collar types . . . which is not Stephen Strange at all.

Maybe Zachary Quinto or Benedict Cumberbatch? (Or however you spell it.) You need somebody who can do cultured, aloof, and otherworldly. Probably a Brit.

Daniel Radcliffe? (Unless he's tired of playing wizards.)

Somebody at io9 just suggested David Tennant, which is also not a bad idea. You need somebody slightly off-kilter and mysterious . . . .

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

The doc actually has some great villains to choose from:

Baron Mordo
Dormammu
Umar
Nightmare

But my fave is Shuma Gorath because he was inexplicably chosen as a character for Marvel vs. Capcom and that's by far his most famous appearance.

Eva Green as Umar, or is that too on-the-nose?

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Matthew McConaughey would be my pick for the voice/Dormmamu. Carey Mulligan to play Cleo. The novelization to be written by our own Greg Cox! Yes. This must happen.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I'm not well veresed on Umar but looked her up.
I had forgotten, or maybe the stories I read never mentioned, that she was Dormammu's sister.

I like the idea of Nightmare as the villian of choice for the first film. Since Dormammu is Strange's top foe save him for later like Joker or Mandarin(hopefully IM3).


*Yes I'm shameless adding links in hopes the uninitiated will check them out and get excited for a Dr.Strange movie. Damn, I did it again.
