The list of potential actors suiting up to play the character include: Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joaquin Phoenix and even Jon Hamm (who seriously seems like he’s turned down 150 superhero roles at this point). However, according to This is Infamous, a very serious contender for the role has emerged. jack-huston Jack Huston, best known from HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, is getting as close to anyone in landing the role of Doctor Strange. If officially cast, the 31 year-old actor will help guide the Marvel Studios film into “Stage Three” of the Marvel Cinematic universe. Stay tuned for official word on casting news, as it appears imminent.
