Marvel's Doctor Strange director shortlist narrowed down to three choices

Last month a shortlist of potential directors for Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE surfaced, however Marvel head Kevin Feige called bullshit on the report a few days later. But yesterday Borys Kit from THR tweeted another name has been added to the list, and said two of the previously mentioned directors are still in the mix to helm the project.

Borys Kit says Marvel is still interested in Mark Andrews (BRAVE) and Jonathan Levine (WARM BODIES) for DOCTOR STRANGE, however they are apparently also looking at SINISTER and THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE director Scott Derrickson.

Although Kevin Feige dismissed the original report, this is the second time we've heard about Andrews and Levine for DOCTOR STRANGE, so I do think there might be some truth to these rumors. Maybe Marvel hasn't had any official discussions with these directors about the film, and I'm sure they will weigh all their options before making a decision, but it sounds like the three directors could be serious contenders for DOCTOR STRANGE.

I wouldn't mind any of them for DOCTOR STRANGE, but if you put a gun to my head and forced me to pick one, I'd have to go with Jonathan Levine, with Scott Derrickson not too far behind. This is still a rumor though, and Marvel could always end up going with a different director. But out of these three, which one would you like to see behind the camera for DOCTOR STRANGE?

I'm for Derrickson

Sinister was well directed and creepy, i was unfamilar with his work at the time but it made me an immediate fan and I'd love for him to take on this material.

I guess I'd hafta go with the Brave dude. Haven't seen Emily Rose in years now and anything that wasn't the 8mm films in Sinister wasn't that interesting. I guess you could say Derrickson likes to keep a dark atmosphere if you count that he never lets his characters use a flashlight or turn on the lights in tense situations.

Not a bad pick a couple years back but he's in his 60's now.

Oh, I saw The Exorcism of Emily Rose very late at night. I was scared and kept looking at my clock...wanting to get to bed and asleep before it hit 3am.

I would say Scott Derrickson. Would love to see more of a horror element towards one of Marvel's films and Doctor Strange could benefit from that.

Scott Derrickson

he seems to have a decent feel for the occult and a strong eye for angles and lighting. could give some really cool nuance to this kind of supernatural story.

I never thought of Scott Derrickson as the director of Doctor Strange. However, he might be the right choice as I really love The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister scared the sh** out of me.
