In a recent interview with Collider, Kevin Feige was asked about whether or not they are actively working on a Dr. Strange movie:
“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 with Iron Man 3, he’s working on the bones that would become Doctor Strange. Now that Iron Man 3 is finished, some of our quote-unquote spare time is going to be devoted to trying to crack Strange.”
Emboldened by this great news they ask when Doctor Strange will enter the Marvel movie universe:
“As we look past 2015, past Avengers 2 and Ant-Man, I think Dr. Strange should be one of the next movies in the years following that.”
Sounds like Phase 3 to me.
Marvel recently got back the rights to Daredevil, Blade, Punisher and Ghost Rider. Ghost Rider is interesting because that means they can use Mephisto now. Mephisto not only has ties to Strange but is a way for Marvel to bring characters back to life. Whedon did promise us death….
Who do you want to play Dr. Strange?
