When Full Metal Jacket/The Dark Knight Rises actor Matthew Modine sent out a Tweet to Marvel expressing his interest in the Doctor Strange role, I think most of us just thought he was gauging interest and had no intentions of following it up. Well, that is certainly not the case, as Modine has continued his Twitter campaign, and has a large number of supporters who regularly Tweet Marvel on his behalf. Now, in an interview with Empire Modine makes it very clear that he is serious about being considered -- he really wants this role. "Whenever there's an opportunity to work in a high-profile film, and in this case such a delicious role, you want the appropriate people to be aware of your interest", he tells the mag. "It would be interesting to see if Marvel might take notice of voices on Twitter. We live in a brave new world of instant shout-outs". Of course we have had a few actors named in connection with playing Strange, and Modine was not among them..but that doesn't mean it's an impossibility, and as he points out himself, Marvel have made left-field choices in the past. "I believe Robert Downey Jr. was not the first choice for Iron Man, now it's difficult to imagine another actor better in the role." What do you guys think? Would Modine make for a good Doc Strange?

Dunno about this. He's trying to hard, that's for sure.

He's a cool guy. Maybe not Doc Strange material but he's still a likeable rascal and apparently a comic fan.

Joaquin Phoenix

no disrespect to this guy but it just comes off as desperation to be part of some big franchise after TDKR

He's trying way too hard and just needs to slow down. But I feel Joaquin Phoenix for sure has locked the role already. Modine is a fantastic actor, though.

Don't really see him as Strange

I want to campaign to do Mad Max artwork for the next film.

I did this fan art after seeing that trailer, and it ended up on Comic Alliance's 'Best Art Ever' for this week.

George Miller needs to hire a brother.

I'm kinda hoping that's who Andy Serkis is playing.

Vincent price

[frick] it, why not try? I don't think he has a shot..but stranger things have happened. I like him as an actor too. Birdy is class, so is Full Metal Jacket.

Too old for Doctor Strange, the actor should be in 40s or late-30s to play Strange.
