With the announcement that Scott Derrickson is set to direct a Doctor Strange movie, an interesting claim from Badass Digest has popped up. In an article reporting the director announcement, the site says that they "have also heard that Marvel likes (or liked, I don’t know what the current status of this is) Jared Leto for Stephen Strange." The article speculates that the entirety of Phase Three will be unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con this year, and says to "expect Derrickson - and whoever is playing Strange - to take that [Hall H] stage." Previous actors rumoured to play Strange include Johnny Depp and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but nothing has been set in stone. Leto recently won an Academy Award for his supporting role in Dallas Buyers Club after taking a break from acting. This is still a rumour, but he certainly has the chops to pull it off, with a big acting range. What are your thoughts?

Hm, that's a pretty decent choice. From what I heard, he was great in Dallas Buyers Club. I'd love to see this.

Jared Leto is a interesting choice...he is 42 even though he looks younger and he is a good actor

Hmm I can dig it
SidTheSloth - 6/3/2014, 4:24 PM
Interesting *strokes pant's crotch
Brainiac13 - 6/3/2014, 4:24 PM
He was good in Dallas Buyers Club
HavocPrime - 6/3/2014, 4:25 PM
Looks good to me
Brainiac13 - 6/3/2014, 4:25 PM
I'd be cool with this....Oscar winner as well!

Brainiac13 - 6/3/2014, 4:26 PM
Thumbs Up....Staypuffed. :)
SidTheSloth - 6/3/2014, 4:26 PM
he reminds me of Rob Lowe
Wallymelon - 6/3/2014, 4:27 PM
Good idea
NovaCorpsFan - 6/3/2014, 4:27 PM
He's into the occult anyway. I bet he's experienced half the shit they put in the movie. Plus, he can act and has an Oscar.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/3/2014, 4:27 PM
I think he could do a good job at playing all the characteristics that stand out with Doctor Strange. He could do the smart, handsome, doctor side of him, he could do the tortured side of him (mostly after he first gains his powers), he can do the funny-guy thing Marvel likes doing, and he can go full-out Sorcerer Supreme. I give this choice three thumbs up.

robert downey junior for dr. strange

it's not as crazy as it sounds. see, he didn't actually play tony stark/iron man. he played rdjr.

it'd be a brilliant move #dolladollabill

Jared Leto is a great actor im completely sold on it.
rockerdude22 - 6/3/2014, 4:29 PM
Damn, I really like this idea! Hope it's true!!
Indy - 6/3/2014, 4:29 PM
He alright but I rather see Johnny Depp he look like Dr. strange to me.
MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:30 PM
*combs mustache with furry*
SidTheSloth - 6/3/2014, 4:31 PM
Hey Indy!

I dont like the idea of Depp as Strange at all. He is just too.....strange
IcemanX - 6/3/2014, 4:31 PM
James Gunn hates him, he wrote it weeks or months ago on facebook
SidTheSloth - 6/3/2014, 4:31 PM
*combs pubes for crabs with fury*
SidTheSloth - 6/3/2014, 4:32 PM
I would rather Matt Smith as Dr Strange honestly
MrMartinMarvel - 6/3/2014, 4:33 PM
I don't see it.
KilledHal9000 - 6/3/2014, 4:33 PM
Depends on the script, but I'd be okay with that.
Indy - 6/3/2014, 4:33 PM
@Sid

what up sid long time no see.
ezio619 - 6/3/2014, 4:34 PM
my choice for Dr Strange is and will be until the character is offically cast..David Tennant..i think tennant can play it well but his american accent is iffy the
OpticBlastWins - 6/3/2014, 4:34 PM
Great actor would not be mad with this
SidTheSloth - 6/3/2014, 4:35 PM
Not much Indy. Just glad i mafe it back in time for Metal Gear movie news honestly.

I should never have left this place for as long as i did. I didnt get ONE i miss you message!
nailbiter111 - 6/3/2014, 4:35 PM
good stuff puffs
Bloodraven - 6/3/2014, 4:36 PM
This would be very cool. He's a really selective actor though, so who knows if he'd take it?
ScorpioRisin - 6/3/2014, 4:36 PM
Leto is great but I'm not sure about it.
MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:36 PM
I, I don't think I can top that.
