NEWS: Marvel Announces Doctor Strange Movie


The Marvel movie universe continues to expand its reach with the announcement of a stand alone Dr. Strange movie. The film is just in the beginning stages of development but is scheduled to be released soon after Marvel’s Ant-Man. Doctor Strange will help to kick off Phase 3 of the Marvel movie-verse.  Here is what Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios had to say:

“He’s a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he’s totally different from anything else we have, just like Guardians of the Galaxy. He’s totally different from anything we’ve done before, as is Ant-Man, which keeps us excited.”

OPINION: Who do you think should play Dr. Strange?

  1. Alex says:

    Viggo Mortensen.

  2. Hellvis says:

    Jim Caviezel is perfect in my mind, but I also think Viggo Mortensen would be awesome too, but he may be too old….anybody but Johnny Depp please. I’ve been dying to see this movie get made for years.

  3. John Powell says:

    Don’t boo first, just think about it…Vince Vaughn. He’s due a come back in a dramatic role. I think he could do it.

  4. nakota says:

    Liam neeson

  5. Ryan T says:

    Robert Downey Jr.

  6. John says:

    How about John Travolta?

  7. pablo says:

    The guy who plays the werewolf on True Blood

  8. Colin lowater says:

    Johnny depp

  9. Ben says:

    I agree with John Powell; Vince Vaughn could do this and pull it off REALLY well.

  10. erratyc says:

    Hugh Laurie would be perfect

  11. Michael says:

    Jon Hamm would be my first choice but if you want to go a bit quarky I think Johnny Depp would do it justice.

  12. TheWACCcom says:

    If you wanna make it real strange, Romany Malco.

  13. Magsaysay says:

    Gabriel Iglesias!

  14. Rick says:

    Dr.Strange better be played by Liam Neelson….I cannot see anyone else worthy of that part.

  15. Marcus Roberts says:

    Ant-Man, now Dr Strange. I truly believe Marvel has something against its Black Characters. Neither one of these had even remotely the success in comics that Black Panther or even Luke Cage had, so why would they think a movie would do better?

  16. Excelsior! says:

    Hugh Laurie by the power of Vishanti!

  17. dave day says:

    nobody dr strange sucks.
    they should do guardian or alpha flight

  18. Russ says:

    Richard Dean Anderson

  19. CelticCrossKnight says:

    Michael Keaton

  20. Shield says:

    The first person to come to mind was.. Julian McMahon . He played Cole in charmed and Dr.doom in the fantastic four movies.

  21. Avery says:

    You guys, George Clooney is totally Dr. Strange!

  22. Wong says:

    My first thought was also Robert Downey Jr, but he’s already Tony Stark/Iron Man

  23. Hateignorance says:

    Idiot. Heros for Hire? Making Kingpin African American? JAMES RHODES?

  24. Matthew White says:

    Jim Caviezel would be awesome!

  25. Ger says:

    How on earth can you think Marvel has got something against black characters??
    Blade was the first majorly successful Marvel movie which kicked these off.
    Granted, it wasn’t the Marvel studio but rather New Line who made it but I seriously doubt it’s a race issue.

  26. CBF76 says:

    First off I would like to say my choice would be Liam Neelson or Johnny Depp either one would work there both really good at what they do.. Second off I would like to address the question Marcus Roberts asked on one of the above statements. First off how does a question about who would play Dr. Strange better turn into a question on why there are no black hero films .. which in answer to that one YES there is BLADE is a black marvel superhero and Black Panther and Luke Cage are not nearly as known as Dr. Strange is in comics I would have to say Black Panther and Luke Cage would be support heroes in a film if done right but not main heroes in a film.

  27. Cliff Simon who played Ba’al on Stargate SG1 is the epitome of Stephen Strange. Perfect for the role except Hollywood might consider him too old.

    As a second choice Josh Hartnett might be very good too.

    Here’s funny thought… Daniel Radcliff (LOL) Harry Potter grows up and becomes The Sorcerer Supreme. Ha, Ha. That’s a riot!!!

  28. dna36526 says:

    Liam neeson is the ONLY choice that comes to mind!!!

  29. James Nelson says:

    Liam Neeson would be awesome.

  30. Dingbat says:

    my mother?

  31. Robert Lee says:

    I think Jim Caviezel should play the next Batman in the reboot. Viggo Mortensen would make a good Dr. Strange and lets not forget that Strange is suppose to be a bit older.

  32. I don’t think Marvel is racist but I agree with Marcus that it is time we see a Black Superhero headlining a movie.

    And my choice would definitely be the Black Panther as he already has a tie in with the Avengers!

  33. Budsworth says:

    Verne Troyer…A.K.A. Mini Strange.

    Seriously…Enough with Liam Neeson. He sucked as Ra’s al Ghul! I say get an Unknown like Christopher Reeve was when he did Superman.

    I think once an actor has done ANY comic book character, then no more! Example: Ryan Reynolds: Deadpool and Green Lantern. (GL SUCKED!)
    Chris Evans: Johnny Storm (Human Torch) and Captain America. (FF Sucked)

    Let’s just hope they do it right. With Special Effects nowadays, it should ROCK!

  34. Ken says:

    Jim Caviezel.

  35. Marc Vincent Klitgaard says:

    Hugh Laurie could be awesome!

  36. Bob Huddleston says:

    Aaron Eckhart – My first choice…by far
    John Cusack – Second choice
    Rob Lowe – Third choice

  37. DarthColossus says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Karl Urban would be best fit. Not a big fan of Karl, but I believe he can pull it off. And my second choice would be Ed Norton. I know he messed up with Marvel, but I believe in second chances.

  38. Bob Huddleston says:

    Y’know…I just reviewed my list. Karl Urban would be my second pick, bumping the others down a notch. I think DarthColossus is right, Urban could pull it off well.

  39. Scott says:

    I’m thinking maybe a James Franco or maybe Jonny Lee Miller. The guy has to be able to play a guy who’s a little full of himself but able to be likeable.

    And yes, Robert D Jr would nail it…it just isn’t meant to be.

  40. Scott says:

    I’m with some of the others on Urban. He’d be a good pick too.

  41. Bo says:

    Sylvester Stallone should play him

  42. Mg says:

    Christoph Waltz-nuff said.Sign him up now.

  43. Bob Huddleston says:

    I’d like to see Sean Combs or Clifford Smith as T’challa – I love me some Black Panther.

  44. Bob Huddleston says:

    Hmmm…on second thought: Black Panther = Chiwetel Ejiofor

  45. neo138 says:

    Keanu Reeves, …………!

  46. Ben Williams says:

    Only one person – Patrick Dempsey.

  47. Spencer McCord Powell says:

    Djimon Hounsou would make a great T’Challa. I thought Tyrese Gibson was going to be Luke Cage in a Power Man movie John Singleton was going to direct. If Tyrese Gibson doesn’t play Luke Cage, Idris Elba would make a great Power Man. Johnny Depp would be perfect to play Doctor Strange. I just hope they don’t f**k up Dormammu.

  48. zorro976 says:

    A Doctor who is full of himself then becomes Sorcerer Supreme? Who better than Dr. House, Hugh Laurie? There was a made for TV movie for Dr. Strange in the 80′s… who played the good doctor? ALEX TREBECK! One guy I think would be a perfect Black Panther… Michael Jai White… Watch Spawn and Universal Soldier 2 then tell me he wouldn’t make a great Black Panther… And Power Man Luke Cage? The Late Michael Clarke Duncan would have been perfect for that role!

  49. Shaniac says:

    First of all…I like the idea of Liam Neeson as Strange…. Neeson is truly a great actor and I think he really would fit the profile perfectly.

    As for Marvel being prejudice? I don’t think so. You have the Blade movies where Wesley Snipes was the leading actor. Then you have Halle Berry as Storm, Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury…. just to name a few…Fury maybe has not had a lot of screen time but he has played a key role in most of the Marvel movies that led up to the Avenger movie…

    Of course, I would eventually like to see a Black Panther movie myself…Maybe a Black Panther Origins…. Even a Luke Cage or Bishop Origins….but as stated already, Ant Man and Dr. Strange have been around much longer and they are supposedly tying all these movies tied together….

  50. morganagrom says:

    James Franco!

  51. Randy says:

    depending on how old you want to make Dr Strange, it could be either Johnny Depp or Liam Neeson.

  52. Steven Rojas says:

    Go with Jefrey Dean Morgan he is a bad ass and has a neAr perfect look for the role so some make up prosthetics and hell look awesome as doctor strange /stephen vincent strange

  53. Chalu Montoya says:

    Johnny Depp

  54. Matticus Rex says:

    Edward Norton… his acting on the Illusionist was based on Dr. Strange. Check it out, you’ll see.

  55. James A says:

    Nicolas Cage… He should have been Tony Stark.. or Bruce Banner..or even Hawkeye… and He was in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.. so he can do that magic stuff… Give Nick a Chance!!!!

  56. CHRIS STOJKOV says:

    Daniel Day-Lewis

  57. Dennis Catriz says:

    James Caviezel or Paul Rude.

  58. Dennis Catriz says:

    James Caviezel, Paul Rude or Edward Burns

  59. Dennis Catriz says:

    Edward Burns or Paul Rude

  60. Dennis Catriz says:

    Clive Owen

  61. Smidge says:

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan for Dr. Strange, based purely on looks

  62. Me says:

    Paul Blackthorne

  63. Brian says:

    Karl Urban

  64. Paul says:

    i think Johnny depp should be dr strange

  65. Marvel Slots says:

    Can’t wait to see this on the big screen. Wonder who is going to direct it and how they will choose the actors for the characters.

  66. Talyn says:

    I think the count of monte cristo’s Jim Caviezel would be an excellent choice to play strange.

  67. Tron78 says:

    I think that Liam Neeson is the best choice for a perfect Strange: he’s an amazing actor and he looks like Strange
