Apparently Christian Bale is everyone’s go to guy for big blockbuster movies. First Batman, then Terminator, and now there are rumors about him playing Marvel’s Dr. Strange. The rumor began at Livenews.com.au where they stated that an “unnamed” source said the following:
“[Bale] is said to be the number one choice to play Dr. Strange in movie studio Marvel’s latest comic book adaptation.
A source said: “Christian is hot property right now, courtesy of Batman.
“Doctor Strange is a very different kind of hero to Batman and it’s felt Christian is the sort of actor who can make the part work on screen.
“It is understood a deal could be struck in the coming weeks.”
Personally, I wouldn’t believe this rumor as far as you could throw it. Bale is such a talented actor and is “hot property” but he already has a number of huge films on his hands. Personally I’d like to see him step into something completely new and never seen before. Take a break from the comic book action movies and do something else. Something smaller and brilliant like American Psycho or Rescue Dawn.
Although whatever he does, there is no doubt he’ll be amazing.
What about you? Do you think that he should play Dr. Strange?
