Brace yourselves, comic fans, because if all goes as planned, Dr. Strange will be one of the next films to come out of Marvel Studios. Marvel Studios President of Production, Kevin Feige, told MTV that Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme is high on his list for films to be adapted following the release of The Avengers.
"Very much so," Feige said. "I'd say in the next year, year and a half, as we start putting together our film slate for 2012 and 2013, I would not be shocked if we saw Dr. Strange on those lists. I love the idea of taping into the magical realm of the Marvel Universe, which is fairly significant and hasn't yet seen life on screen.
"It's something I'm very, very interested in," he emphasized.
Dr. Strange would make a potent addition to the Marvel Studios line-up, and he would introduce a whole level of cosmic adventures to the franchise. It will be interesting to see if Marvel has any cameo appearances from their other heroes appearing in Dr. Strange. The character of Dr. Strange has appeared in short bits in most of Marvel's animated series, but the only attempts to give him center-stage status outside of the comics has been in a fairly uninspiring TV pilot from 1978, and the recent direct-to-DVD animated Doctor Strange, where he was fairly radically changed from his comic book roots.
