In an announcement that came out of nowhere, we now know who will be heading up the the long rumoured Dr. Strange. Word has come from Scott Derrickson himself that his next directorial project is none other than the Sorcerer Supreme, Stephen Strange. No other details have been provided as of yet but expect news on the production to come out quickly. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has long persisted that a Dr. Strange film would come to fruition and now his claims have finally been proven.
Scott Derrickson is best know for his work on films like Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose which more than likely indicate the kind of tone Marvel will be going for this time around. Look for Dr. Strange to be a little spookier than most Marvel movies and definitely expect the weird. With no specific release date revealed, Strange will probably fill one of the two placeholder dates Marvel holds for July 8, 2016 and on May 5, 2017.
