As Marvel moves from phase to phase, grabbing up whatever new characters they think can carry their own movies, the speculation on what we can expect from the “new” department grows. One character that has been almost completely confirmed is that famous sorcerer supreme, Doctor Strange. Personally, this is one I’m eager to see happen, but aside from the fact that a script is in the works, little is known about the project. Now, it looks like there may be some early-phase details leaking out, particularly with regards to who we can expect to see in the bad guy’s chair.
According to the rumormill, flame-headed pseudo-demon, The Dread Dormammu may be the head honcho in the anti-Doctor faction. He’ll also have another classic baddie from the Strange stories, Baron Mordo to help him out. And if the rumors are 100%, Dormammu will have his traditional servants of evil, the Giant Mindless Ones to act as bruisers in his villainous cause.
Of course, the story is still way early in development, so this line-up may just be the first of many that Disney/Marvel is looking at. As the months and years pass us by, expect more than a few changes. And expect we here at the Nerd Bastards to let you know whenever something pops up.
Thanks to /film for the heads-up.
