Doctor Strange could be cool. Especially if they kept it as psychedelic as the early comics.

Quite right.

Too bad we don't have the acting talent that we used to have. Vincent Price would've been a badass Doctor Strange.

Pretty much.

Edgar Wright's behind a movie? I'm there. It's that simple.

Thirded. I expect that both Nick Frost and Simon Pegg to be involved in some capacity.

I'm not so sure about a Doctor Strange movie. The writers generally had a hard time with him because there weren't clear limits to his power. Internal consistency was unusually spotty with regards to what he could do.
 
2013-01-25 09:22:16 PM  
I'm pretty meh on Ant-Man. Pym just isn't that interesting to me, although if it leads to a movie with Janet I guess I'd be willing to suffer through it. I would think that Ant-Man will be done before Strange simply so they can include him in the inevitable Avengers 3.

I'd love a Doctor Strange movie done right. I'm actually not too interested in the psychedelic aspects most folks would expect from a Doctor Strange movie. I just like the character.

Get Guillermo del Toro or Terry Gilliam to direct that and I'd be fapping in the theater like it was a Jessica Alba/Kate Upton lesbian sex video.

Yeah, they can do away with the funky 60's/70's vibe. Hell, it was never actually really part of the character, it was just that a certain part of the culture co-opted the character as a target for their psychodelia.

A modern updating of Dr. Strange, similar to say, Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files could be totally gripping.
 
2013-01-25 10:05:38 PM  
Edgar Wright film = will see. That it's a Marvel movie is just a bonus.
 
2013-01-25 10:09:48 PM  
I'm glad they've finally done something. Wright's been attached to this and asked about it for more than six years.

Apos: Thirded. I expect that both Nick Frost and Simon Pegg to be involved in some capacity.


Why? Scott Pilgrim was fine without them and Paul was fine without Wright.

Brighter side: we might finally get a freaking Dr. Strange Omnibus or two out of this!

Woot!

Edgar Wright could film someone throwing a phone book across the room and it would still manage to be one of my favorite movies of the year. I'm already there, man.
 
2013-01-25 10:49:59 PM  
I will have to check the Dr Strange cartoon on netflix I guess. Been watching some of the other ones and have been mostly impressed by them. Spiderwoman I didn't understand wtf was going on and the some of the Superman flicks ended up deus ex machina-ing everything with an army of super-bots which was pretty disappointing.
 
2013-01-25 10:53:20 PM  
While a Hank Pym Ant-Man wouldn't be bad, I kind of am hoping for the Irredeemable Ant-Man version ... much more depth, less punching of Janet Van Dyne.

I'd take a Hank Pym as Yellowjacket movie, though. My favorite underrated Avenger.
 
2013-01-25 10:54:37 PM  
the Scott Lang version wouldn't be bad, either -- but I always found him to be an awfully sad, character.

Aronofsky has great vision, but I think he's a bit too far up his own ass to do a superhero movie.

Hugh Laurie as Strange
Nathan Fillion as Ant Man
Jennifer Lawrence as Wasp

This probably won't be a very popular opinion around FARK, but as much as I love Edgar Wright himself (the dude is a hoot on the Doug Loves Movies podcast), he is not a very good writer or filmmaker. Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are mediocre and Scott Pilgrim, while obviously a loving tribute to 8-bit and 16-bit gaming, is a total mess.

He also had a hand in writing that terrible Tintin garbage that Spielberg foisted on the world, and Tintin is so awesome that you pretty much have to TRY to fark that up.
 
2013-01-25 11:35:35 PM  
It's a shame that the highly underrated Eric O'Grady as Ant-Man isn't in the movie but... I'll take what I can get.

While I know that Hank slapping Janet is a memorable moment in Ant-Man/Yellow Jacket/Giant Man's history, I kind of hope it won't be mentioned in the movie.

fusillade762: Here's you official list of rumors:

Jim Caviezel is up to play Doctor Strange.
Hugh Laurie was one of the Marvel Studios' choices for Doctor Strange, but felt it would seem to much like "House becoming a Magician".
Patrick Dempsey is in the running for Doctor Strange.[1][2]
Nestor Carbonell and Skeet Ulrich are on Marvel's wishlist to played Doctor Strange.[3]
Adrien Brody is on a close deal with Marvel for the role of Dr. Strange.[4]
Patrick Dempsey reveals in a interview with IGN, if he dons't get the part his Alternate Casting Choices will be Daniel Day Lewis. [5]
Benedict Cumberbatch is up for a role in a future Marvel Studios film, possibly Doctor Strange's. [6]
Corey Stoll is interested in playing the character. [7]
Doctor Strange will debut in Thor: The Dark World with Joel Edgerton as the character.

Nestor Carbonell??


Rwa2play: /First things first Marvel: WHERE'S A DR. STRANGE ONGOING SERIES?!

They tried it in 1978.

[2.bp.blogspot.com image 600x440]

It didn't work out well.


*Wince* Yes, I remember this atrocity well.
 
2013-01-26 12:36:24 AM  
Ant-man will blow. The only reason for it to exist is as a setup for Ultron as the bad buy in the third Avengers movie. Think I'm wrong? Dude, it's ANT-MAN. He's Aquaman, but with ants.

fark THAT, lets just make a GOOD Dresden movie. The short-lived tv show was okay, but it was too low budget, and not enough White Council / Red Court War.

/currently finish up book... 9 I think.

One of my friends got the Marvel Superheroes RPG in the late 1980's. Seemed like Doctor Strange's limit was along the lines of 'choose whatever you want to happen, make a roll against his psyche stat, which is 'Ungodly', and if you make it, it happens.'

The problem with Doctor Strange is he doesn't exactly ooze personality.

Confabulat: The problem with Doctor Strange is he doesn't exactly ooze personality.


It's gotten to where every character remotely like him is infinitely more interesting. Harry Dresden chief among them. If George RR Martin would relax a little on his "this has to be the way it is, no retcons, ever" I'd be excited for that, but then, it would never ever be finished.
