Depp for Doctor Strange?

Disney is hoping

By Robert T. Trate     January 14, 2014
Source: Latino Review

Latino Review is reporting that Marvel and Disney (one in the same now) have been in talks with Johnny Depp about a Doctor Strange movie.
 
Latino Review: “A well-connected source informed me tonight that Johnny Depp has taken a meeting with Marvel to discuss taking on the role of Dr. Strange.
 
Which is interesting because, according to El Mayimbe (also of Latino Review), the script Disney currently has in the works is for a thirty year old Doctor Strange. Depp is currently 50, though that shouldn’t really matter. Do we care that Captain Jack Sparrow is 50? No.
 
This is still unofficial and nothing is set in stone. All of which could change in a few hours. The Doctor Strange movie or storyline is not part of Phase 2. In fact this film or part of the Marvel Universe would likely take place in Phase 3.

  What? Dr. Strange doesn't wear white make up though ...

Seriously tho I agree, this would be quite awesome. And now would be a good time since his recent movies haven't really been that great. I feel like he was at his peak around the time he did BLOW and the 1st Pirates movie. After that I didnt' really take him too seriously in his quirky roles. I think being Dr. Strange would be great for him, and Depp taking this role would be great for Dr. Strange.

 MAKE IT SO!!!  Nuff said.  Depp would fit the role like a glove.

As much as this would be perfect casting IMHO, I can't see Marvel meeting in the middle with Depp in salary.  I would expect a relatively unknown actor unless Depp can be convinced to take a big salary cut from what he is used to in exchange for getting another suiting role.  One can only hope.

 I think they know investing in a very good actor that is perfect for the role is a wise investment after seeing what RDJ did for Ironman. Plus Disney/Marvel know their shit sells like hotcakes.

Dr. Strange would instantly become a house hold name is they attach to Depp to the project. That is worth every penny no matter how much they pay. Shit, most people will go see just for the fact that Depp is in it!

Now if they just keep the MAGIC IN THE MOVIE AND DO NOT DOUCHE IT UP BY MAKING THE MAGIC SOME LAME TECHNOLOGY. F*ck that with a brick.

They will pony up the cash, This is Depp after all.

The thing is, Dr Strange is a relative unknown to the Joe Audience. They need a big name to sell an unknown character.

It's not like they will pony up cash for the actors that play Wong, Clea and Dormmamu anyhow.

Do it!

 Well I think that Marvel has arrived at the point where anything affiliated with Avengers, will make a ton of cash even if it's a relatively unknown character. But i can imagine the trailers right now, if done right (along with some cameos hopefully), will look fantastic and lure in audiences too.

ElBaz, I can see them going for Depp for just your reason. He will casue great interest to a character that is more unknown than even Iron Man was when he came to the movies.

violator14 1/14/2014 11:21:36 AM

 Umm.. i think i pretty much pointed to that first so f u monkeyfoot.   ; )

 As long as Depp doesn't make him quirky, I'm in.
