Doctor Strange Director Update

All different

By Robert T. Trate     February 21, 2014

Who will play Doctor Strange?

One would think that with all the press Marvel is getting for Guardians of the Galaxy they would let everyone, including DC Comics, breathe for a moment. There is no stopping the House of Ideas as now a short list of directors has surfaced for Doctor Strange. Here the list that The Hollywood Reporter (see article here) has posted:
Mark Andrews co-director of Disney’s Brave and the second unit director on John Carter.
Jonathan Levine director of 50/50, Warm Bodies, and All The Boys Love Mandy Lane.

Dean Israelite director of Welcome To Yesterday.
Nikolaj Arcel director of A Royal Affair.

Now has come out with another story that Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) is in the running for the title character. This might just be connecting the dots as Mikkelsen was in Arcel’s A Royal Affair

There will be a lot of guessing and trying to piece things together as we all eagerly await the next mighty Marvel casting move. Is Johnny Depp out of the running? Do we want Johnny Depp? His connection to Marvel’s parent company, Disney, is solid. Sound off below Maniacs!

 I can't wait to see this movie ! I think Johnny Depp would make a perfect Dr. Strange.

I read a few of these growing up.  Not excited, but possibly interested.

depp would have to tone it down a notch and not be comedically quirky to pull it off. i dont think you can go wrong with mads mikkelsen either but i think he would be a better mordo or dormammu

I personally like Depp a lot but unfortuanetly think he has become a type cast of his own quirky persona....I used to think he would make a great Dr. Strange but now I would prefer someone else for sure.  Who that "someone else" is...I just do not know

Definetly get Depp, he really get into the character hes playing. DOnt know much about the comics, never read them, but still looking foward to it.

 Fatpantz said right, the only character Depp gets into, is himself.  Keep him away, bring in someone else. Hell Viggo sounds good. I would prefer a more serious approach to the good doctor, then some Willy wonka rip off.

 Mads Mikkelsen would make a good villian.

Hey, I like that Viggo idea too!  It'll probably go to Depp, however, as he is the bigger draw and Disney's poster boy.  I personally think that guy's (pirate) ship sailed long ago - I still cringe whenever I think of him as creepy Willy Wonka and a painfully bad, wannabee Tonto...

Personally I like Adrian Brody, Aiden Gillian, and Joe Manganiello in that order
