    Default Doctor Strange

    Of the films mentioned ,Doctor Strange is the only one we hadn't heard about until now.

    If you've been hoping that Doctor Strange would definitely get his own movie, your prayers have just been answered.President of production at Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, wants fans to know that his eyes are already set beyond Marvel's Phase II of movie releases. That's saying a lot, considering Phase II includes but is not limited to Iron Man 3, Captain America 2, Thor 2, and Avengers 2. That's a lot of meat and potatoes Marvel, but what's missing is the new and the different. In fact, Phase II's only quirk will be coming in the form of Guardians of the Galaxy.

    But Feige wants more and so do we. That's why he's been opening up about Phase III which will include, you guessed, it Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. On the subject of Ant-Man, Feige emphasized that it's all about director, Edgar Wright.
    Ant-Man is definitely part of Phase Three. Like Iron Man 3, it's certainly set in the Marvel Universe, but it's also through the lens of Edgar Wright, which is the only reason we're making the movie.
    Wright, who apparently has been asking about Ant-Man as far back as 2004, has a signature style he brings to his films. Whether or not it will be the right fit for Ant-Man remains to be seen, but Feige clearly has every confidence it will.

    As for Doctor Strange, Feige is excited for him, too.

    He's a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he's totally different from anything else we have, just like Guardians of the Galaxy.He's totally different from anything we've done before, as is Ant-Man, which keeps us excited.Excited, indeed. Phase III sounds like it's going to take a few risks and that sees us just fine. It'll be exciting to hear what else will be announced.

    Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige On The Future Of 'Doctor Strange'

    Kevin Feige Explains How Magic Will Work In DOCTOR STRANGE
    Marvel Studio's honcho tells us how the grounded Marvel Cinematic Universe will expand to include a Sorceror Supreme.

I sat down with Marvel honcho Kevin Feige at the junket for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and asked him how Marvel intended to move into the realms of magic and the unknown.
    Are you watching the Cosmos series? That’s magic, [the quantum physics]. It’s unbelievable. If somebody knew how to tap into that stuff, what’s the difference between that and magic?

    You don’t get into it in Harry Potter, but if a scientist went to Hogwarts he’d find out how some of that stuff is happening! We’re not going to spend a lot of time on that, but there will be some of that. And particularly for a character like Strange, who goes from a man of science to a man of faith and who traverses both worlds. And sometimes there won’t be an answer! Sometimes he’ll want an answer - “How is this happening?!” - and nothing.
    Doctor Strange also has to be weirder as a movie. The Marvel films have so far had something approaching a house style - even Winter Soldier, which has its own look, fits into the larger Marvel aesthetic. But Feige sees Doctor Strange being quite different.

    “Doctor Strange needs to be a Ditko/Kubrick/Miyazaki/The Matrix mind-trip,” he said. With all the recent news about directors being courted for the film this is interesting - who will be able to deliver for Marvel the kind of mind-trip Feige wants while also making a movie that will hit a wide audience?
