Newsarama lists their top 10 candidates to play Dr. Strange...
^That's a pretty good list.
Yeah, I'd be happy with most of those. After hearing that Patrick Dempsey has wanted it for a few years now I'm inclined to hope that he gets the role.
^Funny, he'd be my least favourite of the list...
I'd go with Joseph Fiennes.
I love the dark horse suggestions of Hugh Laurie and Aiden Gillen but I seriously doubt either of them would happen. However, keep Eric Bana and Joseph Fiennes far away from this!
I bet Oded Fehr would make a cool Dr. Strange. He has the look, and he's played Dr. Fate in DC animation, so he's familiar with the character type.
He's been my top pick ever since they started talking about doing the movie. He's a versatile actor who should be in more visible roles (imho).
ETA: So...is Captain Tightpants going to be Hank Pym? I just keep thinking of that bit between him and RDJ after Castle that one time...
You wouldn't know with Marvel, they're quite brave in their casting choices. No-one saw Ed Norton, Robert Downey Jr or Mark Ruffalo coming. I agree that those choices might be unlikely (Laurie is probably less of an outside choice than Gillen) but I wouldn't rule them out.
This is just a rumor and it's far too early to start a Dr. Strange anticipation thread, so I'll just post this rumor here...
Is Marvel eyeing Justin Theroux to play Stephen Strange?
I noticed the title says Ant-Man is part of Phase 3, but I thought it was going to be one of the last movies in P2?
Yeah, there seems to be some confusion on that score. In the OP of the thread, we have Kevin Feige quoted saying that "'Ant-Man' is definitely part of Phase Three", but he has since said that Ant-Man will be Phase 2.
He's post Avengers 2, but I'm not sure if that's considered Phase 3 or not.
I thought they were ending phases with Avenger films.
Insert joke about shrinking down and sneaking though here...
Ironically, I always thought that the ideal actor to play Dr. Strange would be.......................Robert Downey Jr.
They could be, I don't know. However, the gap between films is, I believe, shorter than between Iron Man 1 and the first Avengers movie.
