By the Eye of Agamotto, can it be true?
According to Deadline New York, the first Marvel film to be made after the merger with Disney is none other than Doctor Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe.
Marvel Studios has hired Conan scribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write Dr. Strange, marking forward progress on a long-gestating superhero property which will likely be among the first Marvel films generated under the Disney banner.
Doctor Strange is yet another classic Marvel character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
Strange was a gifted neurosurgeon, but self-centered and egotistical, that is until a car accident damaged his hands beyond repair. Seeking ways to heal his hands, Strange located the mystical Ancient One who taught him the secrets of the mystic arts.
I am a huge Doctor Strange fan, and I have been hoping for a live-action movie for years, but I am still cautious. However, with the upcoming Thor movie containing magic and mysticism, I believe that if they can ground that in reality, then I hope they can do the same with Dr. Strange.
