Since apparently the movie is going to happen, and has the researchers/writers from the THOR movie, I looked at some recent current actors who would be good as who to portray a well theatered version of The Doctors life.

For Doctor Stephen Strange, destined to be the Sorcerer Supreme, I choose Benedict Cumberbatch from SHERLOCK, and the upcoming STAR TREK II. He's got the demeanor, the arrogance, nobility..and bad assity in his arsonal to match his exquisite acting.

Benedict Cumberbatch

A Philadelphia born boy into a rich family along with his little sister Donna. Donna was the one girl who could bring a smile to the genius lad's face. Then one day she was inexplicably diagnosed with a rare and fatal condition, one which surgeon after Surgeon told Strange there was no way of correcting.

Refusing to allow his Sister's passing, he studied enough to graduate med school before turning 19.

Whether it was Strange's fault during the procedure, or simply her condition worsening to the point of no return, his sister did not make it.

Now suddenly his reason for living or smiling was gone, and all aspirations of destiny and meaning in life were sucked out of the man.


When losing his eskilled neuro surgeon hands to a car accident, the which and famous Doctor Strange sought help from a man who said he could repair him, mind soul and body. Humbled and re-shown lifes meaning and purpose, Doctor Strange realized at his core that he was a healer, a rescuer, a surgeon, and that his destiny was to cut out the Wicked forces from the world as the Sorcerer supreme.


For the Ancient One, his Master from the otherside...I choose Sir Ben Kingsly

Photobucket

For Stranges' lovely mystic aid, and love interest...I choose Gemma Arterton as Clea

Gemma Arterton

Clea possesses formidable abilities for manipulating mystical forces for various purposes, due to her training and partnership by Dr. Strange and her Faltine descent. Originally from the Dark Dimension, and her power equals that of the wicked Lord Umar who once was a tyrant there. She and Strange helped over through him as their love for each other grew through time and testing, until finally she came to live with him on Earth and the two wed.


For the Ancient One's pupil and friend to Dr. Strange as well as co mentor in the ancient arts, I choose THE WALKING DEAD's Steven Yeun as Wong.

Wong Seven Yeun

Wong was brought to the Ancient One when he was only 4 years old by his father, Hamir the Hermit. While there he became a martial arts master, but doesn't get a chance to practice much as a manservant. In this version he is an adept wizard but chooses the life of servitude so as to better himself as a Master under Doctor Strange. While he does learn much from the Doctor, even strange admits, "In some ways I am his master, and in some, I am his student." Giving validity to Wong's life choice.



For Dr. Stranges' Professor at his medical university and Chief Surgeon before Stephen takes his place, I choose Jeffery Wright

Photobucket

For Baron Amadeus Mordo, arch nemesis to Strange, I choose Javier Bardem from No Country for Old Men.

javier bardem

Baron Mordo is a dark wizard who has slain many a magical entity and magician in his path. He is ruthless, self serving, and above all bent on power. Learning from master, to master, how to better sate his thirst for learning more about magic, he soon became uncontent with the level he had reached, and delved into darker forms to accumulate more.

He sacrificed the residence of a city he saved, just to stay in power and insure that he became stronger. His ambitious plans align themselves more often then not with DORMAMU, a Tyrant of the ancient world, once imprisoned by Dr. Strange's Master.

He helped Dormamu escape in exchange for giving him reign over a dimension he felt would make him supreme, allowing Dormamu to do what he wished with the Earth, which later proved to be a focal point for Dormamu's plan to unleash his reality of misery on all the worlds and dimensions.


For Baron Mordo's buxom disciple Adria, I choose Rosario Dawson from Sin City and EagleEye for...

Photobucket

For the Ancient One's eternal foe Dormammu, a once powerful wizard who traded his mortal body for eternal astral energy, and ruler of the Dark Dimension..

I choose Clive Owen for his voice, and former self in a flash back.

Clive Owen Dormammu

@Mrthingswehate

No the title is real and was shopped on that extraordinarily done poster, the title is from the place where they revealed the spiderman title look.
TheSoulEater - 3/8/2012, 2:41 AM
@Mrthingswehate

Do you like my choices?
TheManWithBigEars - 3/8/2012, 3:25 AM
Nice cast but Cummberbatch and Yeun don't really seem like good fits, personally I'd cast Jon Hamm as Strange
Kakarot - 3/8/2012, 3:48 AM
Really liking the Mordo choice dude!
TheSoulEater - 3/8/2012, 4:26 AM
@BigEars, He just seems like a Strange, Hamm strikes me more as...Superman
ager - 3/8/2012, 4:58 AM
the only one not PERFECT is Kingsly. fantastic cast
DDD - 3/8/2012, 5:37 AM
Nicely done!

But CUMBERBATCH doesn't look like the tall, black-
haired Jewish-American former doctor who injures
his hand and becomes the SORCERER SUPREME.

TONY STARK and STEPHEN STRANGE strongly resemble
each other, except STRANGE is taller.

The ANCIENT ONE is ASIAN.

STEVEN YUEN is way too young-looking.

The rest of the cast is fantastic!

BARDEM as MORDO.....EXCELLENT!
Hellsing - 3/8/2012, 7:47 AM
Cumberbatch is a bit young for the role but he's a great actor all you need is a good make ip team to age him up. The cast is great but I just don't like yeun and like mr DDD pointed out the ancient one is asian. So good work
Hellsing - 3/8/2012, 7:50 AM
And Cumberbatch is 6' ft I think thats tall enough
soundwave129 - 3/8/2012, 12:37 PM
Do you have superpowers or something? Because these are all my exact picks that I thought of a few months ago! I guess great minds think alike. ;)
TheSoulEater - 3/8/2012, 3:14 PM
@Soundwave129

I've been there believe me, and indeed they do ;)

@DDD as hellsing said 6 frigging feet, thats tall, taller then RDJ anyway
DDD - 3/9/2012, 12:40 AM
RDJ is 5'9", a midget (joking).
lol
But he looks big in the IRON MAN suit.
But TONY STARK is not known as a giant.
But RDJ looks like DOC STRANGE in the face.

To me, CUMBERBATCH just does not say DOCTOR STRANGE.
He looks smaller than SPOCK and QUINTO is 6'1".
QUINTO looks more like STRANGE than CUMBERBATCH.

DOCTOR STRANGE is listed at the MARVEL DATABASE
as 6'2". Quite tall.
Doesn't anybody look at the official sizes of
people? CUMBERBATCH'S face does not resemble
STEPHEN STRANGE in any way. Comics are a visual
medium, characters look a certain way and have
always looked like that.

CLIVE OWEN looks more like DOCTOR STRANGE than
CUMBERBATCH. CUMBERBATCH is ruddy or red
complexioned. DR. STRANGE is very dark
complexioned.

And also, as HELLSING@ said, "CUMBERBATCH is too
young".

I'm not trying to be a jerk here, just state facts.

BTW, I forgot to say, "VERY NICE POSTER!"
Lewis25 - 3/9/2012, 12:34 PM
I say Ed Quinn should be Dr. Strange.

Yuen is too young for this role.

the rest are Good, especially Clive Owen as Dormammu.

ThaMessenger07 - 3/9/2012, 1:04 PM
I Love the Bardem=Mordo choice! Brilliant!

The rest are good, except as some Have pointed out the Ancient One is Asian and Benedict is far too Young in Appearance. He's no that young but he looks young. Strange is a man that Physically looks seasoned but healthy and fit. Like a Fit Doctor that is still exhausted by the responsibilities he takes on. I always thought Jim Caviezel was the Perfect Strange but he has gotten Old now.

I think Strange should be played by someone under 40 and over 33.

My Top Choices for Strange are Adrien Brody, Jake Gyllenhaal, & Zachary Quinto. Ironically, They all could be Great as Mr. Fantastic as well!
DDD - 3/9/2012, 9:54 PM
THAMESSENGER@, those are some very nice suggestions
for DOC STRANGE. I mentioned ZACHARY QUINTO, myself.
His dark persona lends itself to that of STEPHEN
STRANGE.
DDD - 3/9/2012, 9:55 PM
LEWIS@,

ED QUINN.....EXCELLENT!
TheSoulEater - 3/10/2012, 2:20 AM
I could see Quinto as Doc Strange sure.

However I like Benedict not for look per-say, I mean you can always make someone look older, but because of his persona, his mysterious/seriousness, his voice, and his acting, he could play the role of doctor strange excellently, from a self centered surgeon to a commanding imposing heroic master of Magic, he's believable in both worlds.

ager - 3/10/2012, 8:57 AM
DDD@

I thought your go-to DR was fehr. That guy looks nothing like Stark. If thats' not your go-to then pretend you never read this =). It's not always in the face of the actor, sometimes it's there body language or how well they can rep the personality.

I like Thom Jane, Christain Camargo, James Caviesel, Guy Pearce, Rufus Sewell, Adrian Pasdar, James Marsters, and Thomas Gibson.

Whoa, that's a lot

but i see nothing wrong with Benedict Cumberbatch.

My point is Strange is diverse. Many people can play him IMO
