Aiden Gillen might make a good choice, if they were willing to take a chance on a lesser-known actor (which Marvel have been willing to do in the past).

Weren't there rumors at one point that they were looking at Patrick Dempsey as a possible Stephen Strange?
I'm sure I read somewhere that he was a big fan and was lobbying for the part.

After a quick Google -

The name of the movie is "Dr. Strange", not "Dr. Dullsville".

It's literally the worst casting suggestion I have ever seen.

Well, he has the mustache in Game Of Thrones, but I think there'd be too much of "hey, it's Littlefinger" if he kept the same look.

If Pierce Brosnan was about 15 years younger, he'd be perfect.

What every movie needs is an actor in the lead. You may have regarded Harry Kim as dull, but Garrett Wang was acting. And acting well enough you have confused the actor with the character. What I'm really serious about is the desirability of casting Strange with an Anglophone Asian. Since it would be nearly impossible to resist the pressure for an origin story, the actor cast should be midthirties, since peak earnings for physicians tend to come years of training and after student loans are paid off. How many male native English speaking Asian actors of that age have any track record as actors? They'd be good candidates too.

Also, see below.

The same post cited Sendhil Ramamurthy! Were you not paying attention? Mohinder was devastatingly dull. (Also, might be too young.) Again, what experienced Asian actors of this age are there?

Keanu Reeves did Constantine, as well as carrying the baggage of being Keanu Reeves. It'd be like casting Michael Chiklis as the Hulk.

As long as we're turning back time, agreed that Pierce Brosnan would be good. But I think Montgomery Clift or Tyrone Power or Gregory Peck might be even better.

That would be very interesting. In the meantime, I can't wait for more Sherlock.

Benny Cummerbund actually visited the Marvel offices a few months ago (with Steven Moffat) leading many to speculate if he was there about a role, Doctor Strang being the prime candidate.

Vin Diesel just sent out word he has been contacted by Marvel for a meeting. Looks like Dormammu has been cast.
