Is Marvel finally getting a move on Doctor Strange?

08.01.2011

You've been hearing for awhile now that a DOCTOR STRANGE film was on the horizon. The only thing they failed to leave out was when.

Does the latest news on the project fill in the answer to the question? Nope. Twitch.com has it on good authority that writers Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer (CONAN: THE BARBARIAN, SAHARA) has turned in their script and Marvel is now ready to get this magical show on the road.

They also add that Marvel has a short list of directors who they have sent the script out to in order to "oversee continued development". Take that however you want. Twitch had no other details on which to elaborate.

Back in April, Patrick Dempsey was lobbying for the role of sorcerer, Stephen Strange. I was underwhelmed. Regardless, I'll be glad when they do get a move on this. Until then, I'll just re-read Brian K. Vaughn's take on Doctor Strange.

My favorite character!

I'd love to see this done right, even if it's a 15 or 30 minute short movie done as a featurette. Bring it on!!

The animated feature of Doctor Strange a couple of years back was good in my opinion.

This sounds like a great idea. I recommend reading "Strange" by J. Michael Straczynski for a great take on the character.

Surprised it hasn't been made already, what with Harry Potter being so popular for the past decade, and the comic book boom in full swing.

Why?

Do people really want this film made anyway. I feel it will end up like Elektra

Jon Hamm as Doctor Strange.
Since he is no longer Hulk, why not Edward Norton as Dormammu? Hell, even Eric Bana.

It'd be great to see Doctor Strange be intertwined with other Marvel movies later. My vote for Doctor Strange: Matthew Fox.

Dr. Strange would be a great film if done right but if Marvel sticks to their 2 films per year, when will they release it? 2013 is booked up.

Not a lot of Strange love around here.

If Marvel was smart, they would have worked Strange into the Avengers, so more people would know who he is. I have never been a big fan of the mystical side of Marvel, but I will still see it. Dempsey would be a fine choice IMO. Or maybe Matthew Fox.

Sweet. That means it is only a matter of time until the Irredeemable Ant-Man movie!

Yeah

Think Adrien Brody would probably do a decent job. I didn't think he could pull of the role in predators.

Well

I'm sure there are a lot of Dr. Strange fans out there, but I'm sure I'll live if they never make this movie... I just really have no interest in this movie....
