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.
I don't think I pictured Dormmamu having a southern drawl while playing the bongo drums, shirtless no less. But here are some voice talent that have done it in the past.

My vote would be Tony Todd or Michael Ironside. If only Orson Wells' and his Unicron voice was still around. Or maybe Jeremy Irons.

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.

And Clea's mother, although this wasn't revealed until the seventies . . ..

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?
No, actually because he's got that odd face, angular yet still handsome. As to whether he can go from wisecracker supreme to Sorcerer Supreme, that depends on his acting chops, which, I suppose, could only be determined by auditioning.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Eric Balfour is too weird looking to play Dr. Strange, who was always depicted as a more-or-less conventionally handsome guy, maybe a bit ragged around the edges. Plus I've never noticed that he's much of an actor. Zachary Quinto is a better choice, though he's also on the weird-looking side.

According to teh internets, Johnny Depp already owns the part (not that anyone has informed him of this fact); I like Bradley Cooper for the role.

I still want Patrick Dempsey as Stephen Strange!
That's another good choice.

Umar should be played by an impressive goddess-type actress like Angelica Huston or Meryl Streep.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

^^ Well, it depends on the artist. Guys like Gene Colan and Sal Buscema gave him the conventionally handsome "Mandrake" look, but guys like Steve Ditko and Paul Smith gave him a more elongated, angular, exotic look. As much as I love Colan, I like the more exotic look better and Eric Balfour fits that. As to his acting ability, though, I don't know enough to say.

And Zachary Quinto can't play everybody.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Cool rumor du jour: Viggo Mortensen may be up for the role! (To debut in the next Thor movie, then presumably move on to his own solo movie.)

Let's see, right looks, talented, and the right age. Viggo would ensure they don't make the mistake of casting the role too young. Dr. Strange has white in his hair and a successful medical career in his backstory. It would make sense for him to be at least 40 when his story began.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I saw that rumor as well and it could work if Viggo is up for the part.
Stephen Strange, like Stark, should be played by a 35-40ish actor as well imo.

Which makes the 53-year old Mortensen perfect for the part.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

No shit, he's in his 50's? He doesn't look it to me.
I'll still take him in the role.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

except that he mumbles rather than acts.

Dudes supposed to be an orator yelping about spells to gods granting him boons to smash his enemies.

If the devils down their can't hear you, then your spells ain't worth squat.

Fuck Clooney.

Hot guys can always play younger. The makeup dept will help.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

It takes all the fun out of the character if he has to wear a merkin on his top lip.

Strange won half his battles because all and sundry were afraid of the ferocious things living in his moustache.

Fuck Tom Cruise.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Viggo was rumoured (or at least on fans' wishlists) for Tony Stark at one time and also is supposed to have turned down the role Liam Neeson played in Batman Begins.

Given this and some of the comments he's made about how the LOTR series impacted on him, I have a feeling that he'd be reluctant to commit to another fantasy-type franchise. Which is a shame, because he'd be great in the role.

I didn't say that.

He did after all appear in A History of Violence, which is based on a graphic novel, but it's not a superhero movie. But when Batman Begins was being cast, I remember the story was that he and Daniel Day-Lewis had turned down a role, which Neeson then accepted.

I kinda get the impression that since LOTR, he has wanted to concentrate on indie and non-mainstream movies for the most part. But I'd love for him to prove me wrong.
