Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Surely Quinto is a more obvious choice for the Sub-Mariner, given Namor's oft-remarked resemblance to Mr Spock?

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Quinto hasn't really done much, if anything, since Star Trek has he? Not like his stock is plummeting or anything, but shouldn't he be continuing to get his name out there?

But yeah if they did go the Bradley Cooper route, I'd rather see him as Strange than Eric Draven.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Yeah he's not done much at all aside from a few short films and I think a web series project that he launched himself last year. Can't recall what it was called now. He'd make a fine Namor. It'd be funny seeing Spock shout "Imperius Rex!!!!" half the movie when he went into battle!

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I don't know if his name is big enough to open a movie, but I think Karl Urban would be an excellent Doctor Strange. It's just a shame Keye Luke isn't around to play the Ancient One.

I see Namor as more conventionally-handsome than Spock (never thought about a Namor-Spock connection). Quinto would be more the Doctor Strange type. And he's vanished because he's on Broadway now, which annoys me, he needs to get his fine ass back on TV!

Of the other suggestions, Patrick Dempsey is a good one for Doctor Strange.

Ah so that's where he's been, on Broadway!

Possibly, but I'm not sure there are any immediate plans for a Namor movie.

Plus, there's no rule he can't play both (although that would make a DEFENDERS movie tricky).

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

^ I do recall some time ago that Jonathan Mostow was attached to a Namor project for one of the big studios (given that he made T3, it makes me think of James Cameron's Aquaman on Entourage!) but I've heard nothing about it since.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

Yeah, this was when Dwayne Johnson was still being bandied about for the role. It has been speculated that the situation board at the end of "Iron Man 2" clearly shows Atlantis as one of it's hot points and I think Finge (I keep spelling his name a hundred different ways lol) stated that "Sub-Mariner" is in the works.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

On the other hand, I can see Quinto not wanting to get typcast as "that pointy-eared guy."

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I could live with Johnson as Namor. I would like to see the character played by someone multi-ethnic or indefinably ethnic looking. An Atlantean should look just a little exotic, I think. I used to favour Marc Dacascos or Jason Scott Lee for the role but realistically that would never happen. I'd settle for The Rock, Vin Diesel or that guy who played the President's treacherous bodyguard in the last season of 24.

I don't think Namor's going to get his own movie any time soon.

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

The last time I heard about a Namor movie, they were making it more like Aquaman (a surface dweller finds out he's a prince of Atlantis). But that's all wrong. He's supposed to be raised as a prince under the ocean as he comes to hate humanity. That's the whole key to the character. And if you were to do Namor properly, it would be absurdly expensive with huge CGI deep sea environments for much of the movie.

OTOH, it could be another Avatar. Exotic, immersive CGI world, environmental themes...

Re: Marvel to make a Doctor Strange movie?

I expect "Sub-Mariner" "Punisher" and "Doctor Strange" being officially announced in that news we're supposedly getting this fall. Namor has been a pretty popular character since he's joined the X-Men and of course he's been a supporting character in Jonathon Hickman's FF.
