Movie News

Whilst Marvel Studio’s ANT-MAN is currently without a director, another Marvel property seems to have filled that particular void. Until now merely a rumour, Doctor Strange is indeed getting his own solo movie, which will be directed by Scott Derrickson. Derrickson is best known for helming the likes of THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE and SINISTER.

Taking to Twitter, the director confirmed the news, saying, “My next movie will be STRANGE.” He also attached the following image:

In terms of a release date, we’re none the wiser on that front for this Doc Strange effort. It’s worth noting, though, that Marvel Studios have two dates reserved for unknown projects at this stage. Those particular dates are 8th July, 2016 and 5th May, 2017. Could the Sorcerer Supreme swoop in and nab one of said dates?

On the lead role, it's being speculated by BadassDigest that Oscar-winner Jared Leto is the current favourite for the Stephen Strange gig.

Expect more on this as it develops.
