September 17th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well, we knew this was coming and now Marvel have revealed shooting details and release date for Doctor Strange which is fast becoming their most anticipated release in the next few years…

Screendaily are reporting that: “Marvel Studios is in advanced negotiations to shoot upcoming superhero film Doctor Strange at Pinewood-Shepperton… in late 2014/early 2015.

“A tentative shoot date has been mooted for May 2015 with Marvel having reportedly dated the film’s release for July 8, 2016.”

The movie will be directed by Scott Derrickson and written by Jon Spaihts.

Still no word on who will be playing the Sorcerer Supreme but Joaquin Phoenix is still the favourite for the gig of Marvel’s most powerful magician and master of the dark arts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
