Has Oded Feher been cast as Doctor Strange?

Oded FehrAccording to IMDB.com, Oded Fehr is slated to star in the lead role in “Doctor Strange,” the upcoming Marvel Studios film.

Missed the announcement? Don’t worry. You’re not alone.

If this is true I love the casting. Doctor Strange isn’t a character that can’t get be another race. And Fehr definitely has a soft spot for comic book material.

doctor strange marvel comicsHe’s voiced Ra’s al Ghul in “Young Justice” and he’s already virtually played Doctor Strange as he voiced Dr. Fate in “Justice League Unlimited.”

That version of the character was clearly modeled more after Dr. Strange than the DC Comics main magician.

Moreso, Fehr is just an awesome actor and makes anything he’s in better from “The Mummy” to “Resident Evil: Retribution” so this is excellent casting. I approve Marvel Studios (as I’m sure they were waiting to hear that).

Here’s the synopsis for the film, which is still in development: A subtly maimed surgeon finds a new life when a wizard trains him to become the new Sorcerer Supreme of Earth.

What do you think of this potential news?

    If this turns out to be true it’s another great signing by Marvel Studios.

  • Exactly. (fingers crossed) buddy 😉

    hell he looks the part and knows how to deliver lines that deliver magic hexes, curses, spells(?) sounds like a no brainer or will the same folks or some segment of fanboys ( you know the types). I say good for him and I assume he is of middle eastern desecent, not having to play yet another terrorist or evil sorcerer. he gets to play the good one.. Plus its not like strange has to lift cars or or throw knives. If not him who do you think makes a good strange jeff?

  • I always thought Pierce Brosnan would make for an interesting Dr. Strange. For the most part, Fehr hasn’t been typecast as evil terrorist #5 and has largely played heroic roles, which is great as it shows a demographic not so enlightened that anyone can be a hero.

  • I got hooked on the thought of Doctor Strange as Doctor Who, so I think someone like David Tennant or Peter Capaldi would be brilliant. At least, those were my thoughts when I wrote this: http://comparativegeeks.wordpress.com/2013/09/12/doctor-strange-a-movie-were-sadly-not-going-to-see/

    Now, I want to see Oded Feher as Doctor Strange!!!

  • I like your choices too. I originally thought Pierce Brosnan would have made for a great Dr. Strange as well.

  • Fred

    You know Brosnan actually wouldn’t have been a bad Dr. Strange most likely. Eventhough Dr. Strange is middle aged Brosnan is probably too old now for the role, I’m sure Marvel isn’t going to go past 35-45 for the role, notice how all the candidates rumored for that role are all in that age range. Obviously we know whoever plays Stephen Strange will be a seasoned age of course like RDJ was for Tony Stark.

  • Yeah, I was thinking he may be older than what they’d want for the role, but I still think he’d be awesome in it.
