Kevin Feige Says DOCTOR STRANGE Movie Is On Its Way

Marvel Studios co-president Kevin Feige’s a massive fan of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange. He’s campaigned for a Strange movie since the first Iron Man flick, and even though he’s often stated “I love Doctor Strange, but we’re not working on it”, he’s finally yielded a bit of important info.

“Doc Strange, as I’ve been saying for years, is a movie I believe we should make — we’re just figuring out how to make it a great movie. It is in active development right now,” Feige told us. “Whether that’s one of the movies we announce for 2016 or 2017, we have to see. I think it’ll be the middle of next year before we announce officially what the post Ant-Man films will be.

AWESOME!

With the bit of Punisher and Daredevil news we brought you yesterday, it seems as though Marvel Studios is working hard on a post Avengers cinematic universe. They’ve assembled their Marvel Knights lineup (imagine a team of gutter level Avengers), and considering Doctor Strange’s tangential relationship to that group of superhero misfits, he’s a perfect addition to a “Dark Age” Phase 4 or Phase 5 plan.

Now, it wouldn’t be a proper post without some casting speculation. I’ve long said that Jeff Goldblum would make a terrific Doctor Strange, although Sam Rockwell would be equally fitting for the role.

Who else would you like to see? The fact that Paul Rudd’s an honest candidate for Ant-Man confirms that YES! Marvel’s still as tenacious as ever, and they’ll continue to cast against type, a tactic which produces terrific results. With that in mind, I would love to see anybody EXCEPT Johnny Depp in this role. How many times has he portrayed a weird, occult affiliated weirdo in the past?

Heyo. I'm Nick Dourian, the Editor-In-Chief around these parts. Now, I went to a few other sites, read a few awesome bios, and I really want to fabricate a badass origins story for myself, but I'm feeling particularly unimaginative today, so 'f' that jazz. I read comics, drink bourbon, and cook meats. Imagine Ron Swanson, but with a fuller beard and cuter eyes.
