Tom Hardy...really?

I would pick either

Aidan Gillen, Joseph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Jon Hamm

If I had to choose I would pick Jon Hamm

I can't actually see any of them to be perfectly honest.

Tom Hardy is a pretty diverse actor. I think he could pull off the role.

I also think Benedict Cumberbatch could do quite well as well but I think his fame is more of the attraction.

Remember Marvel will need some big guns to make these films a hit because they are no delving into, in the yes of the general public, obscurity (which is why I think Aidan Gillen, Adrien Brody and Jon Hamm would be poor choices especially compared to names like Benedict and Tom. I am not saying people will not know who these guys are just they aren't crowd drawers)

I think they just have to take some chances. Tom Hardy is a good actor but as Doctor Strange.....no I can not see him pulling it off, he doesn't even resemble him.

I am going to say no to cumberpatch for one reason. If he does another big franchise it will put more holds on Sherlock and that will be a sad thing. I think he is an amazing actor.

"cumberpatch" LOL.

I never thought of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doc Strange but it's actually a good choice. Wouldn't mind.
