Whilst doing the usual IRON MAN 3 promotional stuff, Marvel’s Kevin Feige has given an update on where things currently stand with the studio’s DOCTOR STRANGE film. The good news is, apparently work is already underway on the flick.
Speaking to Collider, Feige said, “Doctor Strange is something that I talk about often and it’s next up for us to dive 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 spare time is going to be devoted to trying to crack Strange.”
Feige was also asked about when DOCTOR STRANGE may hit the big screen, responding, “As we look past 2015, past AVENGERS 2 and ANT-MAN, I think DOCTOR STRANGE should be one of the next movies in the years following that.”
Marvel have already gone on record as saying that DOCTOR STRANGE will be a part of their ‘Phase Three’ of films. Early speculation has Justin Theroux as the current front-runner for the titular role.
