Consider this story to be the secret origin of this blog!
Doctor Strange is the latest Marvel Character I hear rumored for the movie treatment. He does have an interesting origin story and there will be a magical void at the theaters now that Harry Potter has finished his film series, so it could be a good move. Still, the outfit and some of the more mystical villains might be hard to translate faithfully so it could go either way. One thing I know is I hope they go the Robert Downey Jr. route and get an age appropriate seasoned actor for the role and resist the urge to cast some young hip flavor of the moment. I've heard talk of Johnny Depp and I know Patrick Dempsey has expressed interest in the part, but neither of those choices say Stephen Strange to me.
