I think Joe Manganiello would own The Punisher role. I also think it'd work awesome as one of the Marvel/Netflix series.

Now I'm seeing ewan mcgreggor. So basically yeah, everyone.

The hidden downside being that that means not only being teased with names like Ewan, but scared sh*tless with names like Matthew F*cking McConaughey!!!

We should start a rumor that they're going animated and Scrooge McDuck will be Doctor Strange.

Chris Evans was hardly an unknown...

Gerard Butler would be a great Punisher.

Well he was to me except for starring in that horrible, horrible F4 movie. And HELL YEAH on Butler!

I think part of his problem with F4 was the character is inherently unlikable and a lot of people can't separate character and actor

I discovered him in Not Another Teen Movie-- in which he was hilarious. But mostly I recalled him from Sunshine.

His Torch was one of the few accurate characters in those movies.

 

But yeah, Sunshine was wild.

Oh I don´t have a problem with him in the movie. I just have a huge problem with just about everything in the movie itself. From the slow as glue pacing to the super-powered Dr Doom. Would have been better if the writers actually read at least one issue of the comic instead of just looking at the cover and making up stuff.

Hate to burst everyone's bubble, but Benedict is not confirmed yet.  Deadline is the original source and they're only saying that he's about to enter negotiations.  Phoenix was deep into negotiations before it fell through, so nothing is at all in any way set in stone.

That said, I do think he'd be good for the role.  I think Viggo Mortensen would have been best, but this is still a solid casting choice.

Well I don't know nuthin', but the article I read said he's about to enter final negotiations. And considering the clock is ticking, I don't think they're going to mess around, especially after the Phoenix thing.

If it weren't for all of the rights issues, it would have been great to see Famke Janssen as Phoenix playing Stephen Strange.

Okay, but seriously. I would think being in final negotiations is usually pretty meaningful. The thing to take away from that isn't "final negotiations don't mean nuthin'", it's "Joakin is a bit of a flake these days".
Don't you think?

Until and unless Hollywood Reporter, Variety, or Entertainment Weekly specifically state, "Actor X has officially signed on for Role Y" or equally definitive terms, I don't give a flying fig what any other news/rumor site alleges. Period.

 

And any Hollywood state of being between "signed an ironclad contract" and "walked away" is 100% transitory and subject to change without notice. Phrases like "in talks" and "negotiations" and "circling" guarantee nothing.

 

But, y'know, that's just me.

Really? I haven't seen any real announcements. But we just got Internet hooked up and I'm busy with offline stuff like work and moving and picking my nose.

I guess not. I thought I saw it in with all the other news, but it does seem like it's pretty locked in.
