Earlier in the week, Variety reported that Marvel wants Johnny Depp to play Doctor Strange which made sense financially considering he’s already owned by Disney, but was horrible news for anyone who doesn’t want to see The Sorcerer Supreme (What’s a vagina?) emote via drunken eyebrows. But now comes word that Jon Hamm might be the one to spearhead Marvel’s Phase Three, and yes, that was a joke about his penis. Why do you think I’m even writing this post? This Is Infamous reports:

That’s right… the man we’ve come to know as MAD MEN’s Don Draper has been cast as the Sorcerer Supreme and Master of the Mystic Arts.
Look at the top of most “Who Should Play Doctor Strange?” lists, and you’ll find Hamm’s name prominently displayed as the right match for the role, an opinion Marvel shares as well. There are still reservations about Hamm fronting such a big piece of Marvel’s future, but those nerves seem to surround every choice Marvel makes for their leads until their respective films are in production and things settle in nicely.
Most of the issues seem to be with Hamm’s age (42), but let’s remember that Robert Downey Jr. was right around the same age when IRON MAN was released theatrically, and that worked out well for everyone involved. DOCTOR STRANGE had originally been written for a younger actor in the lead, but there’s nothing in the early drafts of the script that couldn’t be altered to accommodate Hamm. Needless to say, it’s not a deal-breaker.

For those of you skeptical of this casting, keep in mind Doctor Strange wields the Eye of Agamatto, a one-eyed, mystical tool of awesome power which is literally the story of Jon Hamm’s life along with being treated like a set of twins until his sixth birthday. (His parents were farsighted.)

    The People website has Dinklage on a scooter.
    I expect more comprehensive coverage of this later in the blog. In fact I’m counting on it.

  2. Good. I wasn’t really interested in watching Johnny Depp mumble his way through a Doctor Strange movie. Although it’s hard to take Dr. Strange seriously since the Venture Brothers homage to the character.

    It’s just this big when flaccid.

    I have no idea what any of the words in this post meant. It’s about one of the 37 comic book movies coming out in the next year, isn’t it?

    “C’mon, Jon, slow a little enthusiasm. In this next scene, we see Don get drunk and cheat on his wife for only the 1783rd time in this show. It’s a crucial turning point.”

    Now he is just bragging about it.

    They’re worried about Jon Hamms age, even though he’s 8 years younger than Depp?

    “Average? About like this size, right?”

    In this scene, Don Draper gets pulled over for drunk driving and takes a field sobriety test where he has to stretch his arms out and then bring his fingers towards each other, stopping them at the length of his erect penis.

    He passed.

    Phase 3 is already being “spearheaded” by Ant Man. You can’t have two spearheads, yo

    “… I call it ‘Blue Steel’”. But I haven’t decided on a nickname for this expression yet.”

  14. Wikipedia lists one of Doctor Strange’s abilities as “extended longevity.” Just putting that out there.

  15. Depp’s awesome, but I couldn’t help but think he’d make Stephen Strange “wacky”, which just doesn’t work for me. I can see Hamm doing it, but I’d really like to see Oded Fehr.

  16. Dr. Strange in the comics has distinguished silver “wings” in his hair.

    I always took him to be a 40ish fellow, a former surgeon who had become a wizard or whatever it’s called, so that he could…I don’t know why he became a wizard, but that’s why doctors do when they lose their medical practise, I suppose?

    I would like to see Jon Hamm in this role if the alternative is Johnny Depp. Johnny Depp lost me when he stuck a dead crow on his head and cashed a $20 million cheque for it.
