Doctor Strange Update

Deadline broke the story that Marvel Entertainment is has a wish list of actors for the role of Doctor Strange. It was announced earlier this week that Scott Derrickson (Sinister) will direct the picture and it will be written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer.

Deadline is stating that Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) are their top two for Stephen Strange. These two actors would each make fine choices and deliver two completely unique visions of the character. Tom Hardy can now been seen in Locke and the up coming Mad Max: Fury Road. Benedict Cumberbatch is in the upcoming Imitation and the final Hobbit movie, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Solid choices Maniacs. Who would you pick between these two?

I really like both as actors, but do not see either of them in this role.

 I like Pedro Pascal forma game of thrones, he has that flair that Stephen Strange gives.

Stephen Strange is a New Yorker. An American. Yes, I know Brits can play Americans and vice versa, but are ther NO American actors that could be cast in this role? I don't think either of those is right for this, although if I had to choose, I'd go with Bane.

 Looks like they want to go bigger name rather than unknowns like the the two actors from GoT or Tom Mison from Sleepy Hollow.

 They should go with Jim Caviezel.  Remember his look as the Count of Monte Cristo?  That was spot on for the role of Dr. Strange.  And if they want big names, his is pretty big too.

Don't be surprised if it's a none of the above, out of left field choice. I'm thinking Timothy Olyphant or Andrew Lincoln. Marvel is known for going outside the box when it comes to casting choices, just ask Chris Evans, RDJ, and Chris Pratt.

I'm kind surprised that they went with two up and comign guys...I mean isn't Cumberbatch getting really popular now?  Usually Marvel goes with the lesser knowns first so they can pay them jack shinola because they are notoriously cheap from all that has been said.

I vote for Will Smith. And, in the role of Dr. Strange Jr. Jaden Smith. It'll be one hell of a movie.

Jimvo99, at least you didn't say the guy that's playing Johnny Storm in the FF movie.

Rutldge, 1 on Caviezel. That dude rocks a van dyke.
