Ryan Gosling can currently be found on the big screen in La La Land but it’s possible that Gosling could have been in a very different role in 2016. Marvel’s Doctor Strange was a highly sought after role with names like Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and Tom Hardy being thrown around, the role ultimately went to Benedict Cumberbatch but Ryan Gosling was also amongst those trying to become the Sorcerer Supreme.
New concept art shows off what Gosling would have looked like as Doctor Strange. The art was created by professional conceptual artist Court Chu. He updated his website with two pieces of Gosling as Strange and wrote, “I worked probably not even a day on some version of Doctor Strange years ago,” Chu wrote, “and back then they wanted Gosling.”
From Marvel comes DOCTOR STRANGE, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.
Doctor Strange will be available for purchase on Blu-Ray on February 28, 2017.
