The first photos of Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton’s big screen version of Dark Shadows are hitting the web.
The Hollywood Reporter features two photos and does a Barnabas/Edward Cullen from Twilight comparison.
What popped in my comic geek mind? Depp as Doctor Strange. Some other nerd probably already posted this on the web before. I know some will say Depp is in everything already. In fact, I said that to a friend in an online chat when they suggested Depp for a big screen Doctor Who. I wanted Jude Law for the Time Lord.
Back to Depp as the Master of the Mystic Arts - pure magic or do you think I’ve been smoking something mystic? I can picture Depp as the arrogant surgeon with a tragic past who finds his destiny fighting demons and rivals to save the Earth.
