I'd just fear Depp would be all Depp in the role.

Depp has the look for the role.  And he's well connected with Disney.  But I think my reservations about him are the same as Bill's.  Johnny Depp seems to inject this air of camp into almost any project he's involved in these days.

I know there was a lot of talk about Joaquin Phoenix playing the part.  What I also heard there was that he was interested, but also concerned about the amount of CGI the project would require.  And evidently his concerns are that he feels more of a need for practical effects that he could interact with as an actor.  I know that Ewan McGregor expressed similar concerns about the production of the PT, so I don't think it's an insignificant consideration.

Ethan Hawke seems like an interesting choice.  He can pull off the look.  As for the character?  I honestly don't know enough about Dr. Strange to say one way or the other.

Way to go Marvel.  So someone leaks the trailer?  Marvel says screw them and they release the trailer for real!  Smart move on their part.  And the leakers are left hanging while Marvel gets a lot of attention for a huge project.

Oh, and the trailer looks awesome!  The stakes clearly appear to have been raised.
