Kevin Feige, crazy mastermind behind all of Marvel’s hugely successful movies (and The Incredible Hulk, which, though I loved it, didn’t exactly break the bank), really likes Doctor Strange. Now, I don’t know who that is, other than that he looks like Vincent Price, but the character is apparently very popular with comic book people, so this news should excite you.
With Phase 2 kicking off with today’s release of Iron Man 3, Marvel Studios is already looking forward to Phase 3, whose first film will be Ant-Man in late 2015.
Says Feige, as reported in Collider, “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.”
I guess we can expect a Doctor Strange film sometime in 2016 or 2017, which would be totally cool, if I had any idea who this guy even is. Somebody please explain this guy to me in the comments, as well as who would be able to play the character. I vote for Vincent Price, resurrected via cutting-edge CGI effects.
