Ryan Gosling lead favourite to play Supreme Dr. Strange

FF 22 OCT 14 Gosling Strange

The battle is on to become Dr. Strange. Scores of Hollywood’s finest have bolstered into the race to become the new, dark and Earthly protector of the MARVEL machine. Lead candidates have been a swirl of interest including Keanu Reeves, Jared Leto, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ethan Hawke, Oscar Isaac, Ewan McGregor, Matthew McConaughey, Justin Theroux and frontrunner Ryan Gosling. Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch were also being mildly considered. McConaughey, Gosling, Hawke, Leto, Gyllenhaal, Isaac and McGregor comprise the final shortlist. The proposed casting for Joaquin Phoenix fell through, leading to an influx of suggestions to seize the hands on role. Gorgeous Gosling is hotly tipped to work his magic, but is he right for the role? Even more shocking what people didn’t know, is that months prior to Phoenix, veteran actor Matthew Modine was the leading choice. Gosling has fought off Johnny Deep in a coming Harry Houdini biopic and is leading a chance to star in DC Comics own Suicide Squad. Is this an attempt to steal the ever great Gosling to the rival brand? Whether it is or not, it would cement Gosling in place with the MARVEL hero house and keep him away from prying eyes, whilst raising and remaining a part of The Avengers squad, here and there.

DC Comics are having a hard time of it lately, losing out to rival MARVEL and failing to provide interest. While it’s DC against MARVEL its also media involvement too. FOX and Rupert Murdoch’s News International are taking on MARVEL and Disney. Two of the biggest five companies in the world of media may just be slugging it out for superhero supremacy. Since launching the catastrophic Batman vs. Superman forthcoming Man of Steel sequel with a bundle of errors before production began and even well into it, DC may be doomed. It needs powerful people at the helm who know what to do as Zack Synder was given the go ahead based on his resume rather than his talent. Already he has bungled the show. Even casting and pushing Wonder Woman onto screens in a rushed moment has systematically broken the Justice League before it has began.

Gosling for role?

Previously Gosling had turned down the role of Hal Jordan, The Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds took that role. As hot and cool as Reynolds is, look how that turned out.

There is no greater joy than to become a hero on screen, but the consequences are vast. They can ruin your career if not thought through, clever casting and a meaty script offer.

Strange is said to be the most powerful humanoid in the Universe. With a description like that, it’s no doubt they want Gosling. For this alone, we would agree, R-Gos should get the role. Offer him a wealthy packet too, he deserves it. This also leads to another importance. Is Ryan Gosling now the most bankable and sought after star in Hollywood, often under-looked from the really big roles? Listen up MARVEL, get me on the set. Editor, casting, director, you name it. You won’t be disappointed. Gosling is fit for the role and can make it his own. Whilst some may disagree on first instance, we see what MARVEL sees. Give Gosling a chance, he is the best option on the table. He’ll be able to craft the role with careful change but embodiment of the hero persona. This is a rare talent that only a few in Hollywood can handle. At 33 years old, also in his prime, Gosling is one of them.

Scott Derrickson of The Exorcism of Emily Rose fame is likely to be directing.

Production is set to begin in 2015.

Dr. Strange is scheduled for a July 8th 2016 release.

Star Wars Episode VII. Gosling and Efron in it?

It’s the ultimate fan boy franchise. To bag a role in Star Wars is the ultimate win for fan theory and as an actor.

Then it should please fans to know that Superstuds Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling have auditioned for the seventh Star Wars film, set to be filmed in London next year.

Gosling would look very good as a Sith lord after recent work in Only God Forgives highlighted a somber and captivating presence on screen.

Matt Damon has also been highly rumoured to join the cast, but is high speculation and rumour at this point looking unlikely.

J.J. Abrams of Star Trek and Lost will be directing the film from scriptwriter Michael Arndt.

All three original cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) are said to be returning. Episode VI ended as Luke and Leia discovered they are twins that were separated at birth to protect them from the empire. Billy Dee Williams who plays Captain Lando and Anthony Daniels (C3PO) are likely to reappear also. Ewan McGregor may retake the role of Obi Wan Kenobi, as a force ghost.

Seven’s story may feature Han and Leia’s teen daughter in a hearty role.

Disney bought the rights to the film from legendary creator George Lucas.

The release is planned for December 2015.

Lucas is said to have pre planned years ago to extend the franchise to episode IX.

All in all, Lucas has a grand plan spread out since his early years. He has direction and remains creative consultant, a wise move for Disney to maintain. Lucas has known how to make the franchise connect with fans and small tweaks with certain characters and a strong story with fan action and hot new actors in supporting roles will drive the movies forward favourably.
