Marvel Studios has found its Doctor Strange director! Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose helmer Scott Derrickson will take on the master of the mystic arts.

"[Doctor Strange] checks the box off this criteria that I have," Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told SuperHeroHype recently about the long-gestating feature. "He’s totally different from anything else we have."

Although a specific release date for Doctor Strange has not yet been set, Marvel has two placeholder dates set for unnamed features on July 8, 2016 and on May 5, 2017. It's looking more and more likely that the good doctor will be claiming one of those spots. Derrickson's other directing credits include the 2009 remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still and the upcoming Deliver Us From Evil, hitting theaters July 2nd.

Late yesterday came the news that "Sinister" and "Deliver Us from Evil" director Scott Derrickson would take the helm of Marvel's "Doctor Strange" project.

Now, Badass Digest adds that recent Oscar winner Jared Leto is (or was) being eyed to play the title character.

In fact it would seem he has been under consideration for some time, but it's not known if the studios are still pursuing him.

The site adds Derrickson originally came onboard the project as a writer only, and the tone will be similar to that of "Iron Man".

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige appeared at CineEurope in Barcelona this week and Total Film was there to record his updates on the various upcoming Marvel product including "Doctor Strange," "Ant-Man" "Guardians of the Galaxy". First up, "Doctor Strange" which aims to shoot starting early next year:

"[W]e think we'll be casting probably in the next month or two, and announcing an actor, and then we get into production in the spring of next year. Strange is very, very important, not just because it's an amazing character study, and a journey of a man who's gone from this very arrogant surgeon to somebody who is quite zen and literally keeps all of reality together on a daily basis.

[T]here's a whole other side of the Marvel comics, which is that supernatural side - the interdimensional side of the Marvel universe, and Doctor Strange is, I believe, our entry point into that other realm, which has dozens of characters and storylines all of its own."

Feige says more of the intergalactic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be explored in "Guardians of the Galaxy" sequels should they go forward:

"There are dozens and dozens of Guardians Of The Galaxy storylines. There's a group that came about in the '60s, were revamped again in the '80s and they changed into this incarnation that you see in this movie about eight or nine years ago. So there are a lot of other characters and worlds and stories. So should this film work, should the audience come out for this one, there are definitely places we can take it and we have ideas of where we'd like to go with it."

Feige confirms that their "Ant-Man" film is still targeting a July 17th 2015 release, despite the change of directors:

"Ant-Man is a very important character for us. We like that people don't necessarily know what it is. We like that it sounds sort of strange when you first hear the notion of Ant-Man, or a hero that can shrink, but he's a very key Marvel character. He's a key Avenger. He's an important character we want to bring into our universe and Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and an amazing cast all set to start in August, we believe that we're on the road to the best version of Ant-Man that we could have."

Further comments from Marvel's Kevin Feige are coming out in the press interviews for "Guardians of the Galaxy," this time it's IGN UK.

The site asked him about the upcoming "Doctor Strange" film and the chances of it being a franchise that exists entirely unto itself, as opposed to his character being a part of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and, more specifically, future "Avengers" movies. Feige says:

"It does make sense [to have standalone franchises], but I don't think it makes sense for this character, who has clearly woven in and out of that stuff [The Avengers] in the comics. We have a template. There's a template for everything we do, which are the comics.

Strange goes back and forth. Guardians less so, actually, until recently. But if there's a character like that who clearly interweaves over the course of many stories, I find no reason to go, 'We're not going to do that in the movies. We're going to keep him in his own movies.' So there's always the potential for it [Strange to join The Avengers]"

As for when they'll announce the role's casting, Feige says he doesn't think it'll be as soon as Comic Con next weekend, BUT "it'll be relatively quickly."

Marvel had a screenplay for a "Doctor Strange" movie for several years. Then, in recent months they hired both Scott Derrickson ("Deliver Us From Evil") to direct and screenwriter Jon Spaihts ("Prometheus") to work on the script which was rumored to be starting over.

Appearing on Meet The Movie Press, Devin Faraci of Badass Digest has spoken a bit about Spaiht's script and how it differs from the previous one:

"So, for Dr. Strange they've had a script in-house forever. It is a pretty standard origin story for Doctor Strange. It's got Baron Mordo as the bad guy. That's all gone. Marvel's new thing is no more origin stories.

So, Dr. Strange movie no longer has an origin. It begins in medias res. It has Dr. Strange already established as the Sorcerer Supreme. It is a totally new script. Jon Spaihts is working totally new, On his own, without any of the previous stuff. Not even touching the previous script."

Production on the "Doctor Strange" film is expected to get underway next year.

Marvel Studios confirmed today that Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness and The Imitation Game, will play Doctor Strange in the 2016 film of the same name.

The announcement confirms earlier reports that pegged the modern day Sherlock Holmes as Marvel Studios' choice for Doctor Strange.

"Stephen Strange's story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity," said producer Kevin Feige in a statement. "In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character."

Doctor Strange is a neurosurgeon who "discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions" — opening up a new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — following a horrific car accident. The film adaptation of the character will be directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister) and written by John Spaihts (Prometheus).

Doctor Strange is scheduled for theatrical release on Nov. 4, 2016, and is part of Marvel's third phase of superhero movies, which also includes Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2, Inhumans and Captain Marvel.

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has posted a rather interesting tweet, which teases Death (or Mistress Death) from the Marvel Comics.

Derrickson tweeted out an image of the cover from Doctor Strange #2, which features Death.

In what could be a possible spoiler for the movie, we'll just say the issue sees Doctor Strange confront Death in what is part of his origin story.

Interestingly enough, Thanos just happens to worship Death as well.

We see the cover reads "Dr. Strange Meets... Death!" with Derrickson adding: "As will we all.."

Death, in Marvel Comics lore, is one of the cosmic abstracts and the personification of Death who came into existence at the creation of the universe along with the other cosmic abstracts: Eternity, Infinity and Oblivion. All four more or less balance each other out.

Doctor Strange has a November 4, 2016 release starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange.

We had 'Winter Soldier' and "Guardians of the Galaxy" in 2014, 'Ultron' and "Ant-Man" this year, and in 2016 Marvel is continuing its approach of pumping out a high-profile sequel early in the Summer followed by a new property in the latter half of the year.

Whilst we get "Captain America: Civil War" early next year, after that will come Scott Derrickson's film adaptation of the "Doctor Strange" comics. As "Thor" and then 'Guardians' established and then further explored the cosmic aspects of the Marvel cinematic universe, 'Strange' is slated to introduce mystical aspects.

There's no doubt it'll be a weird project, and the post-credits of the upcoming "Ant-Man" is said to boast the first hint of how strange the film might get. Speaking with Birth Movies Death this weekend, Marvel's Kevin Feige says we've yet to see just how crazy this world can get:

"We send Ant-Man on a very weird, mind-bending journey at the end of Ant-Man. It was something we hadn't seen in a shrinking movie before, but it also represents the tip of the mind-bending weirdness we're going to do in Strange, which I think will surprise people."

The casting of Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, a role you would normally expect to go to an older Asian male actor, was a surprise to many and Feige says that's kind of the point:

"As we were developing this film we looked at The Ancient One as a mantle more than a specific person. The sorcerers have been around for millennia, protecting us from things we didn't know about until this story. There have been multiple [Ancient Ones], even if this one has been around for five hundred years, there were others. This is a mantle, and therefore felt we had leeway to cast in interesting ways."

Feige also confirms Doctor Strange will still live in Greenwich Village like in the comics: "The Sanctum is on Bleeker Street, the modern day Bleeker Street. He will be the strangest thing walking out onto that street."

Speaking of the film, a new fan-made potential opening credits for the film is out and drawing a lot of attention.

DR. STRANGE synopsis:

"The Doctor Strange movie actually starts much earlier than anyone expected, opening in 1968 Kathmandu where some Zealots of dark magic manage to open a portal to another dimension. Leading them is a character named Kaecilius, a name taken from a character associated with Baron Mordo in the Marvel Comics.

"We leave the mystery of magic in the 1960s behind to catch up with brilliant Stephen Strange in modern day New York operating on a gunshot wound. He's a brilliant surgeon who is a bit arrogant until one night, while chatting on the phone, he clips his car, causing an accident that damages his hands.

"After several surgeries from Dr. Nicodemus West, Strange's hands still aren't healed enough to return to being a doctor. An encounter with magic (and sub-atomic particles) leads him on a journey to find the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), and when he finds her, she initially refuses to teach him.

"That's what they're filming right now in Nepal, as there will be a scene in the movie where Cumberbatch's Strange gets his now-wild facial hair under control, and shaves it down to the classic Doctor Strange facial hair we're all expecting."

James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) has read the script for Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange, and during a live broadcast Q&A on Facebook he was asked what he thought about the movie. He seemed pretty excited about what Derrickson and Marvel are doing with the film, which recently started production. This is what he said:

"I like Doctor Strange, but I'm really excited about the new script. I like the script a lot so I'm very excited about the movie and I think Scott Derrickson is going to do something very unique visually. In the same way that Guardians came in and was a unique visual take on the Marvel Universe that was very different from the stuff that came before it, I think Doctor Strange is going to be the same way. So I'm so, so excited for what it's doing for the Marvel Universe."

A former neurosurgeon embarks on a journey of healing only to be drawn into the world of the mystic arts.

Great casting, mind-bending special effects but the story feels rushed and one of Marvel’s coolest bad guy is cheaply thrown in with forgettable results. Enjoyable but flawed.

Director: Scott Derrickson
Running time: 105 minutes
Released: 2016

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that there are plans to do a direct “Doctor Strange” sequel. Speaking with Cinema Blend as part of press rounds for “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Feige hinted that another standalone adventure for the Sorcerer Supreme is coming.

He says: “[Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange one, which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of Infinity War.” Benedict Cumberbatch has played the role in three films to date – “Doctor Strange,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Avengers: Infinity War” and will reprise it in the fourth “Avengers” next year.

As part of the same interview, Feige also spoke about the release strategy for Marvel Studios moving forward and how they handle the sequel/original film ratio:

“It’s one of the reasons we’ve expanded to three films a year, is so that we could do the sequels to films that people have responded to – because we love to make continuing stories with characters people have responded to – but also keep doing the stuff that nobody’s ever heard of, and people go, ‘Why are you doing that?’ That’s fun. And that’s what Phase One was built on, Phase Two was built on, Phase Three was built on, is having that…

Whenever we announce the next year, two years, three years, five years, whatever we’re going to announce, there will be plenty of those that, maybe people in the know like yourself will know what they are, but the world at large will go, ‘What is it? Why are they doing that?’ That’s exciting, for sure.”
