Doctor Strange (TBA)
A Doctor Strange film has been rumored to be in the works for years now, with dozens of names attached to the role. Back in January 2013 Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed that a Doctor Strange film would appear as part of Phase Three, but beyond that there hasn’t been much movement on it yet. That is slowly starting to change though, and as of February 2014, Marvel is actively looking for a director.
- All previous casting reports should be thrown out the window. Everyone form Johnny Depp to John Hamm has been mentioned for the role – and it may be that someone did discuss the project with them, but the film is not yet to the casting phase. A director will be named first, and then likely a script will be written before a lead is confirmed.
- Feige has stated that the lead role may go to a star, or it might go to a relative unknown. According to him, “it just depends.”
- A Doctor Strange film is still on track for Phase Three, but it isn’t confirmed when it will film or be released. Another project that is further along in terms of casting and scripting may jump ahead.
- The name “Stephen Strange” was mentioned in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This was mainly just an Easter Egg for fans, but it does confirm the character’s existence in the universe (if there was any doubt).
