Matthew Modine Wants Lead in Marvel's "Doctor Strange" Film

Posted: August 3rd, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Matthew Modine Wants Lead in MarvelSubmit Comment
We've been hearing that such actors as Joaquin Phoenix, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy have met with Marvel to play the lead role in the upcoming "Doctor Strange" film, which will be directed by Scott Derrickson.

But Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, The Dark Knight Rises) is hoping that the studio would consider him as well, regularly taking to Twitter to let Marvel know that he wants the role.

In a new interview with Empire magazine, Modine revealed that he's very serious about this. "Whenever there's an opportunity to work in a high-profile film, and in this case such a delicious role, you want the appropriate people to be aware of your interest," he said. "It would be interesting to see if Marvel might take notice of voices on Twitter."

Modine is aware of the type of actors that Marvel is reaching out to, but is hoping that the studio would consider going in a less-obvious direction. "I believe Robert Downey Jr was not the first choice for Iron Man, now it's difficult to imagine another actor better in the role."

"a delicious role"?


He chose his words quite carefully for a Marvel film.

A tad too much though.

Um, no. Sorry, Modine, but you haven't been relevant since Vision Quest, and you pretty much sealed your stardom's doom with Cutthroat Island.

You might be a decent actor, but commanding screen presence was never on your side. Now you're just too old and too boringly white to play Doctor Strange.

Dream on.

Matthew this is what you pay an agent for. If you've replaced your agent with sending tweets on your cell phone, you should definitely fire your agent. They're not doing the job you're giving them 10% for. But since 10% of nothing is still nothing maybe they are not doing the job you're not paying them for.

Robert Downey Jr. wasn't the first choice to play Tony Stark because the studio said no. I believe there was trouble securing insurance for any film he was cast in because of all his legal troubles with the drugs and such. You were taking a gamble that RDJ wouldn't Paul Walker the hell out of your film. Jon Fatso lobbied the studios for him. They said no. RDJ got some sort of meeting with the execs and evidently sucked all the right d*cks, convinced them rehab was different this last 8th attempt, and promise not to Paul Walker their mega movie. Mel Gibson also vouched for him when that wasn't meant as a joke.

And Matthew, the 1980's called and want to know how the hell you got out. I mean you've already done your Vision Quest man. You beat the Shoot. Even though that guy outweighed you by about 100 pounds on screen. And you had just spent the entire film losing weight to get down to his weight class. Everyone knows that in a real match the Shoot would have skull f*cked you to death right in front of your absentee father and one night stand you called a love interest. But Madonna would have sang and made everything seem OK.

So basically you just need to get Mel Gibson to vouch for you.

I was watching the 2007 Dr Strange Cartoon and a few random actors popped into my head to play him in the movie, Oded Fehr, Eddie McClintock, Craig Olejnik, Clayne Crawford and Andrew Lee Potts.

Actually Andrew Lee Potts would be quite interesting.
