Aidan Gillen should have been Doctor Strange. I have nothing against Cumberbatch, but Gillen would have been spot on casting for me.

Awesome casting. He's a great name to bring to a b-list marvel movie to put people in the seats.

This is a strong casting choice I think. Marvel has been playing it kind of safe lately though while DC makes huge risks with their casting. As an equal fan of both Marvel and DC I hope things turn out well for both of them, but I wonder if a risk that pays off is better than a safe choice that is expectedly-enjoyable.

TUESDAY was DC day

now today is Marvel day!

I love this back and forth!

Sometimes I feel like you and me are the only guys who get excited for and openly support both Marvel and DC haha. I share your sentiments on this exactly.

Benedict Cumberbatch will do for Doctor Strange what Robert Downey Jr. did for Iron Man.

Hopefully, since it'll mean Marvel might dedicate more to their magical side of the universe, which it needs.

It won't be magic. It will be high science. Something was said in an interview awhile back.

Not a fan of the casting choice. Not a fan of his natural vibe. I hope he proves me wrong and I hope they dye his hair.

I read that article. They said the magic in THOR was "high science". Dr. Strange is gonna be the real deal (feels kinda weird saying that about magic). I'm all for this casting choice.

haha yea it does feel that way. I just love that both Marvel and DC are putting out mostly great stuff in comics, tv, movies, and all around.

I can't wait for all the future movies and shows!

ANd I'm also rallying for another Marvel/ DC crossover in the future. It would be epic.

Eh, one good actor does not a good movie make. I'm gonna want more details before I board the train to Hypeville.

Really not feeling this. Cumberbatch has never given me much of a Vincent Price vibe.

Im guessing Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty much going to be in most everything geek related.

I wouldn't be surprised if he appears in Gareth Edwards Starwars movie or a DC movie

No! KAAAAAAAHN! I guess I will be skipping this in the theater. Its too bad because I really like the character and the man it was based on. (Vincent Price)

I couldn't help posting a comment here, anyway, though he wasn't my first choice, I'm fine with it and just hope they don't withdraw the charm of Stephen:

@vandersexxx :

I can think of several reasons of why that wouldn't be a good idea.

Dormammu shouldn't really be the villain of the first movie, would be much potential wasted.

@humanrocket:

According to CBM, they're already doing that.

Here is the article.

While I do have my doubts on Marvel casting choices initially, Marvel never fail to disappoint me once I see the actors in action...

But I have no complaints for now!
