Marvel Chief Kevin Feige told MTV Splash Page that he aims to get a big screen version of 'Doctor Strange' off the ground in the post-'Avengers' slate of Marvel movies.

"I'd say in the next year, year and a half, as we start putting together our film slate for 2012 and 2013, I would not be shocked if we saw Dr. Strange on those lists," Feige said. "I love the idea of taping into the magical realm of the Marvel Universe, which is fairly significant and hasn't yet seen life on screen. It's something I'm very, very interested in."

Although a favorite of many, Dr. Strange has had a tough time sustaining a regular comic series of late. Creators of no less significance than J. Michael Straczinski and Brian K. Vaughn have tried their hand at repositioning the Sorcerer Supreme for comics greatness and, on some level, failed. Recently Neil Gaiman has expressed interest in penning the script for a film version of the character, and 'Hobbit' director Guillermo del Toro has expressed interest in directingt a Gaiman-written film.

What do you think? Should there be a Dr. Strange movie? Who should play the good doctor on the big screen? Post your comments below...
