Spurgeon to Hollywood: Hurry up and make that Dr. Strange movie already

Doctor Strange: The Oath

Doctor Strange: The Oath

No doubt inspired by his arrival to Comic-Con, Tom Spurgeon has made up a list of what he feels are 10 properties that should be fast-tracked into movies or TV shows. No. 1 on the list is Dr. Strange, and Tom has an interesting suggestion as to who should don the Eye of Agamotto:

While some folks reading that original post thought I was hinting at Johnny Depp being best suited for the role, the actor I was thinking of was actually Leonardo DiCaprio. A number of you probably just vomited, but DiCaprio is already 34, he can act, he’s as believable as Downey Jr. — albeit in a different way — as someone who once had a glamorous career, lost it and has seen tough times since, he’s a major motion picture star, he has considerable onscreen charisma it’s fun to see him embrace rather than flee and he’s adept at playing romance. But so many actors would do.

Go check out the whole list. There are some interesting and eclectic choices found there.

Its a pity that the rumored Gaiman-penned and Del Toro-helmed Dr. Strange flick will probably never happen. That would be so good!

A lot of people rag on DiCaprio. I think he’s a great actor.

The Oath would make a pretty good adaptation that isn’t married to another run-o-the-mill origin story.
