Rumor: Marvel interested in Jared Leto for Doctor Strange

Jun. 4, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

Now that Marvel has hired director Scott Derrickson for their DOCTOR STRANGE movie, the next task for the studio will be to find an actor to play the Sorcerer Supreme. Badass Digest has heard rumblings Marvel is interested in (or at the very least was considering) recent Oscar winner Jared Leto for Doctor Strange.

I have also heard that Marvel likes (or liked, I don't know what the current status of this is) Jared Leto for Stephen Strange.

Jared Leto might be joining the list of previously rumored actors to play Doctor Strange that includes Johnny Depp and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but it's not clear if Marvel is still looking at Jared Leto for the part, and even if they are, perhaps Leto isn't interested in playing the character. We will probably be learning more about DOCTOR STRANGE (as well as other future Marvel projects) at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and I bet the studio would really like to have an actor lined-up for the role before the convention.

I don't think Jared Leto would make a bad Doctor Strange, however he's certainly not my first choice to play the character either. Although he's 42 years old, he just looks way too young in the face to play Stephen Strange in my opinion. But this is only a rumor, and we'll have to wait and see if Marvel does have any interest in Jared Leto for Doctor Strange.

What are your thoughts on Jared Leto possibly playing Doctor Strange?

Jared Leto is a FANTASTIC Choice

the guys acting chops are unbelievable. And those saying he looks too young? guy is 43, by the time filming starts he'll be 44, if he does a trilogy, hell be in his early 50's by the time the 3rd movie rolls around. The guy can beef up and lose the weight so easily!!

I think Leto has talent but I'm not sure he is right for this part. I don't know a ton about this character but based on the little I do know I think that Matthew Fox would make for an awesome Dr. Strange. He is talented and deserves to get a big break out role,

Michael Huisman and Paddy Considine, excellent suggestions from Cerealkiller. I don't know Huisman apart from Thrones, but he looks the part with his beard and squint. Considine however has amazing range and could make a very charismatic Strange, both arrogant and fun.

One thing I love about Marvel is how they embrace "out-of-the-box' casting. I could definitely see Leto as Strange but I think I would like to see Pedro Pascal, who played Oberyn Martell on Game of Thrones, as the Doctor.

Not everyone was thrilled....

When Downey was announced as Stark (short memories) and now no one can come up with a replacement. Simple math is that if an actor can win the role, it's usually his. Hence, no really good choices made for Bruce Banner, just fill ins.

He would be a great choice. The doctor is supposed to be handsome. And Jared's actor ability has been proven.

The movie from 2007.

Great actor. His work has always impressed me. Especially Dallas Buyer's Club, obviously. But no one is going to be able to shake the Pedro Pascal bug. Isn't this obvious?

I agree with one of the other commenters, I don't mind him as an actor (I do mind him as a person, heh) but I don't feel like he's a good fit for this role. But I guess since he transformed himself for Dallas Buyers Club, they feel like he's worth looking at?

I don't doubt Leto's acting ability, but he's too much of a pretty boy to play Strange.

I've said it a million and one times, but Luke Evans would be a good choice. Physically at least, he looks the part.

It is actually amazing to me at how many different actors get presented by you all and each of them have incredible merits for the role. Mads? Viggo? Armitage? Evans? Clooney? Coster-Waldeau? Keanu? Modine? Leto? When I think of this list of actors, each would present a very different Dr Strange, but not a single one of these would I imagine it would be bad or wrong. Bravo, readers. Perhaps the role itself is very open, perhaps I have way too much faith in Marvel. But honestly, not

Colin Farrell!!! If he can do it like the detective in Minority Report, absolutely! He can definitely play the cool, aloof doctor. I'd say he could be good as the flamboyant sorcerer as well (he showed that kind of skill in Fright Night). That's a cool idea.....

Collin Farell. Interesting. I just feel like Luke Evans draws a close resemblance to Dr. Strange, and he has proven he can handle action in films so the fit seems almost perfect

It's great that he looks the part and is fit enough to do action (not sure how much action Dr. Strange really gets into), but he's really bad at the whole acting thing

Leto is obviously a great actor but he's not right for this kind of role. I think Richard Armitage would be a great Doctor Strange. I don't think Thorin Oakenshield will have too much on his plate after Hobbit wraps... I think it would be a good fit.

I have no idea who'd be good for him as I don't know much about him. Never cared for magic when super powers were an option. Is this going to be a horror film?
On a random note, reading the new hulk trade (or not the newest but recent) I was thinking Paul Greengrass would be epic as a director for the next presumed hulk film.

Even if this does not happen you can almost guarantee Marvel and Disney will choose a younger actor for the role. For all of you thinking an older actor will get the part, I wouldn't get to worked up when they pick a younger, up and coming actor...

Was wondering how long it would be before someone brought up Heath. People being outraged and then silenced in one instance does not mean it gets to be THE reference point, for every time a studio makes a ridiculous casting decision from now until the end of time.

Who can play an arrogant but brilliant doctor who then gets taught a massive lesson in humility and we'll buy it? I think if one of the objectives is to find a new central point in the cinematic universe other than RDJ then Depp is an excellent choice. Viggo will also do for me. I can see Cumberbatch playing an excellent pompous jerk because he knows he's a damn fine medical doctor.

While Jared Leto is an excellent actor,

I agree he looks too young for Dr. Strange. I admit, my only experience with Dr. Strange is in MARVEL 1602 but, based on that, he needs to look of a similar age with Nick Fury. That's why Viggo Mortensen would be my first choice, if he's interested. Liam Neeson would be another fun choice, as would Bryan Cranston (hey, if the guy's willing to do GODZILLA, Dr. Strange wouldn't be far off!).

I like the guy and he's a good actor, but I just don't see him as the Doctor and to be able to take the torch from Downey Jr's Iron Man. Plus, I want someone who looks a bit more older and not so young looking in the face.

I would still like to see Marvel cast Joaquin Phoenix, Jon Hamm, Benedict Cumberbatch, or Adrien Brody for the role.

Viggo would be good as Dr. Strange, the same way he'd be good as Spider-Man. Because he's that great of an actor. I find it odd that people are so attached to him playing Strange though.

We don't need a pretty boy playing Dr. Stange. We need a man like Viggo or at least someone who you can take seriously. Don't get me wrong, Jared is an amazing actor but he isn't rough enough around the edges to pull off the good doctor.

Actually, I'll tell you who I'd like in the role - and I'm sure I'll get a few thumbs down for it... But George Clooney.

There'll be people who sight Batman & Robin as to why he shouldn't be cast - but quite honestly, I've always thought Clooney was a good choice for Bruce - it was the film that let him down, not the other way around.

My second choice would be Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Which actually would be funny - I love The Losers and Marvel have already nabbed Chris Evans, Idris Elba &

Clooney is getting old, watch monuments men and then see if you still want him.

I'd like GC in one of these, but maybe more of a Robert Redford type role ala Cap 2

Clooney is great and looks the part, but he is a bit old for Dr Strange in my opinion. But who knows?

I admit I haven't seen Leto in anything for quite a while so this is no comment on his acting ability at all... But I have to say I don't see it, I don't think he quite as the right look for it and for me the big question is - are they looking at Strange to take over from Iron Man/ RDJ because if so I'm not sure Leto is the guy.

I don't immediately have anyone I think would be a good choice, I'm just not sold on the idea of Leto.

Dallas Buyers Club, he's a really good actor, just really wrong for this.

I'd watch Mads fill the role. Could be interesting.

Not my first choice but I wouldn't mind this casting. Actually, a young Jared Leto would be a great Gambit.

I can see him as Doctor Strange. With a new haircut and a bit of grey hair and mustache, he'll look the part.

Look the part? Leto is too skinny, looks like a boy, with a baby face to boot. Pretty much the polar opposite of Strange, and don't even get me started on his voice, his tone, it's just not right. No amount of makeup is going to make him look the part.

Of course, if he does get the job, Leto would need to buff up.
