Long have their been talks about a Doctor Strange movie. Even Mania brought it up to Marvel uber Producer Kevin Feige back in 2008 (read here). Well with Keige making the press junket for Iron Man 3, Collider.com asked the question yet again, when will we see Doctor Strange?
Kevin Feige had this to say:
“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.”
Feige then revealed that Doctor Strange would follow Ant-Man:
“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.”
So it is all just a matter of time. In terms of casting, Mania asked that question back in 2008, during The Incredible Hulk press junket. Feige had this to say:
“I think Stephen Strange shares a quirkiness, a uniqueness with Tony Stark so I can think of a hand full of people to play Stephen Strange. What I love to do is ask you guys who you want to play role. We patrol the message boards all the time to see who the fans want in this particular role. I’ll tell you this, our movies have two casting lists. One that comes from the casting director and our own ideas but the other is from the message boards about what people are buzzing about”.
Sound off below Maniacs. Who do you want to see as Doctor Strange?
