Kevin Feige gives fans an update on a ‘Doctor Strange’ film, who is a ‘great character’

Giving EW a rundown on the status of potential future Marvel adaptations for Phase 3, Marvel Studios Exec Kevin Feige gave an update on the comic-book adaptation of Doctor Strange.

Doctor Strange“I would love Strange to be a part of that only because he’s a great character. He’s a great standalone character. He’s got a great origin story, for the most part. And that world of pure magic, we haven’t done yet. There’s a whole supernatural/magic alternate dimension going on in the Marvel comics that we haven’t ever touched on. So I think that’s exciting.”

Iron Man 3 proved to be a monster success at the box office and it’s not surprising to hear Feige discuss how the current slate of films is the priority.

“I’d say 99 percent of our time right now is purely spent on Phase Two,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told EW. “It’s five colossally giant motion pictures that we have to produce. So that’s taking up the time. But within the next year or so we’ll start the advanced planning for post-Avengers 2.”

Created in 1963, Stephen Strange was an arrogant surgeon who goes on a faith-healing quest after his previously miracle-working hands are damaged in an accident. What he discovers transforms him into one of the world’s most powerful sorcerers, charged with protecting Earth from supernatural and magical threats.
