Like all of you, I'm enjoying the hell out of what Marvel is doing with their cinematic universe, but there are still so many characters that have yet to get their own movie. In my mind, one of the most deserving characters is Doctor Strange, and it looks like Marvel is finally getting to work on it! In a recent interview with Collider, Kevin Feige was asked about whether or not they are actively working on the movie, and this was his answer...
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.
He's then asked when we would see Doctor Strange enter their Marvel movie universe, and this is what he said!
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.
This is one of my favorite characters, and it's exciting to know that it will possibly be released in the studio's third phase!
