Phase II of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has barely started yet, but talk is already turning to what lies ahead in the future – aka Phase III. We already know that Ant-Man will kick that off in November 2015, and will also presumably include third movies for Captain America and Thor, but what about the original heroes? Kevin Feige has previously said that the long-in-development Doctor Strange is a top priority for the studio and will be a part of their third phase, and in an interview with Collider while doing the rounds for Iron Man 3 Feige drops another update on the film…
“Dr. Strange is something that I talk about often and it’s sort of next up for us to dig into and explore. Our executive producer of Iron Man 3, having done Captain America: The First Avenger and as that was finishing he started working on the bones that would become Iron Man 3, and now that he’s finished withIron Man 3, he’s working on the bones that would become Doctor Strange. Now that Iron Man 3 is finished, some of our spare time is going to be devoted to trying to crack Strange.”
“As we look past 2015, past Avengers 2 and Ant-Man, I think Dr. Strangeshould be one of the next movies in the years following that.”
This definitely sounds promising. Doctor Strange could be really incredible if done right and a big hit with the general audience, so lets hope the movie will be a part of the Phase III slate. What do you think? Share your thoughts below!
