Rumor: Marvel Eyeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Star in DOCTOR STRANGE

I don’t like calling out other sites, but I feel it’s important that our readers know that when we report on an “exclusive” from Latino Review, especially with regards to superhero news, the item must be taken with massive amounts of salt.  They used to have solid scoops, but their track record lately has become increasingly shoddy.  With all this in mind, the site is reporting that Marvel wants Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in the likely Phase Three movie, Doctor StrangeThomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer‘s script reportedly calls for an actor in his early 30s.

Assuming this is true, it’s still not all that shocking that Marvel wants someone a little on the younger side so they can get him into more movies, and they want a recognizable, professional, star who won’t break the bank.  Gordon-Levitt fits that description, but even LR admits that these are just internal discussions for Marvel.  This isn’t even close to the negotiating table yet.  But if you think Gordon-Levitt is a great choice to play the Sorcerer Supreme, then you and Marvel Studios might be on the same page.

    So he must sign a contract of Strange sequels… who’s gonna be Batman then?

      They already said that they’re casting a different Batman and Nolan’s story isn’t in the DC movie universe. Also, they’ve been wanting Armie Hammer to play Batman for a long time now.

    If it’s from Latino Review then it’s most likely not true and besides why would Marvel want JGL as Doctor Strange? Nothing about him screams Doctor Strange at all and I thought he was busy with his new directorial career.

    How bout that other guy? Viggo Mortenstein?

  • nom79

    I call bullshit on this. JGL is no Dr. Strange…..no disrespect to him and his acting experience but he just doesn’t fit the character. If this is real, I may just be done with Marvel films.

    • eternalozzie

      will you be done with complaining about them too? JGL is whoever he puts his mind to being.

  • Robby Richmond

    Think it says more about who they have lined up to direct it… Rian Johnson anyone?

    Can’t see him playing Dr. Strange.

  • fooliocoolio

    the article in LR clearly states and reads RUMOR not official.

  • Dan

    If he can pull off the beard, then he has my vote.

  • Englishgent

    Cumberbatch That is all…

  • lets see

    The guy has done con man, hitman, lovesick yuppy, hustler, Dashiell Hammett-type detective, Gotham City detective, Robert Lincoln, cancer victim, Cobra Commander, anarchic sociopath, and more. Dr. Strange? No problem.

    I still say Jeffery Donovan of Burn Notice, for Dr. Strange. He’s got the acting chops and the look and attitude for the character.

    How about Simon Baker, that guy from the mentalist, he’s perfect for the character. I think he can pull off Dr. Strange looks and acting.
