I'm personally psyched that Marvel Studios is trying to push forward with this film. But the question remains, WHO SHOULD PLAY STEPHEN STRANGE???

He's a dead ringer for him when he's sporting the goatee look. I also think Dr Strange's voice would be very well articulated like Liam.

@Jake Fury: The "well articulated" point really dug it in for me.

 The part in Taken where he's talking to the kidnappers about his daughter....I could just hear him in that voice saying...."My name is Doctor Stephen Strange"...

Liam Neeson would be cool as doctor Strange true.

Agreed.  I like Liam Neeson, but he's been Qui Gon Jinn, Aslan and now Zeus.  He's already too close to being stereotyped as a quiet-voiced magic father character actor. 
 
I'd like to see someone new.  Discover a new face, like we did when Hugh Jackman became famous because of Wolverine.

@Caligula:
That nomination has nothing to do with watchmen. He's played in a doctor show(Grey's Anatomy) on TV before( sad that I know that), plus he played a demon hunter on Smallville(John Winchester). He's got the whole "middle aged guy who loses everything and then finds a new lease on life" look. Cut him a goatee, and viola, he even resembles Steven Strange. I've though this one out

I vote Johnny Depp. He'll make a great Strange but... too expensive.

Liam Neeson would be epic. If not him, I GUESS Johnny Depp could do it. He's into that kinda genre.

On a more serious note though I think Liam Neeson is the most obvious choice for the role but he might not be the best for the role. The main issue is that he's too old. I'm not saying they should cast some 20 year old for the role but you have to realize that Neeson is in his 60's.
