Marvel Exec denies Johnny Depp for ‘Doctor Strange’ as they seek out a director

Marvel is searching for a director to helm Doctor Strange, set to be part of their Phase Three films.

Doctor Strange Marvel Comics photo“We’re meeting a lot of people now,” says Marvel Exec Kevin Feige in an interview with IGN, before dismissing the specific names mentioned as mere speculation. “But we’re actively looking.”

“We always look at a wide range of people with a wide range of backgrounds. There’s only one criteria: do something that we think is really cool. That’s about it.”

Feige denied the studio reached out to Johnny Depp to star in the film.

“When you have a project that’s been around as long as Doctor Strange, there is sometimes, “Oh, I’ve met with Stan about this! Or I did that!” So Strange is one of those projects that predates me by a long shot. Obviously, the character does, but even in its cinematic brewing. So there’s a lot of things that have happened before me, and I’ve been here 14 years. So that’s a long time ago. I don’t know if that happened then.”

In fact, Feige says it may not even be star.

“You know, I would say that we’re pretty transparent, right? Doctor Strange would be our — well, depending on when we make it, it could be our 13th, 14th, 15th movie, right? I think if you’re looking to track our decision-making and how we’ve done things, we have a pretty wide track record now where you can sort of see. So, no, a movie star is not required, but that doesn’t mean a movie star wouldn’t be great. It just depends.”

Doctor Strange is likely to arrive in theaters 2016 or 2017.
