Although we don't know who will be directing Marvel Studio's upcoming Doctor Strange as of yet, we now know how the film might fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In a recent interview, Marvel's President of Production Kevin Feige gives example of how it may fall together.
"Are you watching the Cosmos series? That's magic, [the quantum physics]. It's unbelievable. If somebody knew how to tap into that stuff, what's the difference between that and magic?
You don't get into it in Harry Potter, but if a scientist went to Hogwarts he'd find out how some of that stuff is happening! We're not going to spend a lot of time on that, but there will be some of that. And particularly for a character like Strange, who goes from a man of science to a man of faith and who traverses both worlds. And sometimes there won't be an answer! Sometimes he'll want an answer - "How is this happening?!" - and nothing. Doctor Strange needs to be a Ditko/Kubrick/Miyazaki/The Matrix mind-trip."
In a separate interview, he discusses a possible timeline for the release of the film.
" It's time. It's time. I would be surprised if that were the case, yeah. Maybe three or four years, yeah, we'll see. But, I would like it to be the case. Much like Vin Diesel, I like it when something finally happens, and then we can talk about what it is -- versus rumors of what it could be or should be or isn't yet [laughs]."
