ANT-MAN And DOCTOR STRANGE To Spearhead Phase 3 For Marvel



Kevin Feige has been making the interview rounds here recently, and now he has just confirmed that not only will Ant-Man lead the way for Marvel's Phase Three after Avengers 2, but that Doctor Strange will be joining him!


Jake "WaylonJones" Lester - 1/25/2013



Ant-Man and Doctor Stange have been two projects for Marvel, that have longed been rumored, but never confirmed. That all changed for Ant-Man this past July at Comic-Con when Marvel announced the film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige talked about how he will be a major part of Phase 3."'Ant-Man' is definitely part of Phase Three. Like 'Iron Man 3,' it's certainly set in the Marvel Universe," he explained to MTV. He also went on to say that director Edgar Wright is the only reason the film is happening. "I've known Edgar since our first lunch together at Comic-Con in 2004. He asked me what Marvel was doing with 'Ant-Man' we weren't even a studio then; what a difference eight years makes," he laughed. While it's not a surprise, the Ant-Man movie will be an origin film, which Feige said is very much from the perspective of both wright and co-writer Joe Cornish. It will be apart of the MCU, but a different corner than we've seen before."


Feige went on to say that Phase three will be completely different from the stories they are telling now. Saying, "So much of what we're telling right now is about the core 'Avengers' characters we've now met, and they'll be evolving in big, surprising ways, in Cap's next movie and Thor's next movie and of course in 'Iron Man 3,' as we get them all into the next 'Avengers' film. Beyond that 'Ant-Man' is the only one officially announced." He continued by saying you wont have to look too far as to where they might go as far as other characters they are planning on bringing to the big screen.


With all that in mind, it brings us back to Doctor Strange. Who, acorrding to Feige, WILL be a part of Phase 3. "'Doctor Strange,' which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of them," he confirmed. "He's a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he's totally different from anything else we have, just like 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' He's totally different from anything we've done before, as is 'Ant-Man,' which keeps us excited." No word yet still on the rumored Black Panther project, but it is exciting to see one of the long rumored films confirmed.

No that the rights have reverted from Fox back to Marvel, I've hoping Daredevil is part of Phase 3 too.


The weird thing is, is that to do Daredevil right, to do it the way it deserves to be made, it really wouldn't fit into the Marvel cinematic universe at all. It's way too dark for "puny God". I hope Marvel make it, but I really hope they have the balls to make it right. I'm not asking for R rated, but we need a The Dark Knight kind of intensity. Of course a HBO/AMC tv series would be perfect, but I really can't see that happening.

That's fine though. Daredevil doesn't really fit into the Marvel comic universe either. He just sort of does his own street-level thing. He's punching ninjas and slapping muggers while occasionally someone in a cape flies overhead chasing a cosmic powered robot over the horizon.

Murdock fits though, in the capacity of legal aid to the super powered. They could maybe make a natural feeling bridge/cameo using that.

Benedict Cumberbatch signed on to play Strange


Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of "Sherlock," The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and the upcoming The Imitation Game, has, according to Deadline, taken the leading role in Marvel Studio's Doctor Strange!


Doctor Strange is based on the character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who made his first appearance in 1963's "Strange Tales" #110. It follows the adventures of Stephen Strange (nodded at in this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier), a brilliant neurosurgeon who, following a car accident, loses precision in his hands. His quest to regain his former skills sets Strange on a path to become the "Master of the Mystic Arts."


Although no official release date has been set for the film, the time table for production would lead one to believe that Doctor Strange will land on the July 8, 2016 release date that Marvel has already bookmarked for a theatrical release.

doctor-strange-jon-hamm-responds-to-dr-strange-rumors.jpeg?width=1413&height=700Typical, eh? Now that Benedict Cumberbatch has finished promoting The Imitation Game and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Marvel have officially announced that he will play Doctor Strange in the movie which is set to be released on November 4th, 2016. Directed by Scott Derrickson with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, it "will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions." That's the first official plot synopsis for the movie, and obviously very close to the character's comic book origin. In a statement released on Marvel.com, Kevin Feige is quoted as saying: "Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity. In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character." How do you guys feel about Benedict Cumberbatch being cast as Doctor Strange?

DOCTOR STRANGE May Be Marvel's "Very Dark" FANTASIA Says DOP; Vague Concept Art Details




Including a vague description of concept art with Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme, hit the jump to find out who will be the director of photography on Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange adaptation and why he thinks it won't be your typical Marvel movie.

By DCMarvelFreshman - 8/5/2015


While production is gearing up for a November start date in the United Kingdom, some new and very intriguing details about the long-awaited Doctor Strange movie have surfaced online over the past week or so. In addition to descriptions of the first conceptual art showcased at a Disney press conference in Africa, cinematographer Ben Davis (Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron) has confirmed that he will be the Director of Photography on the "Phase Three" Marvel adaptation.




During an interview with Screen Daily, Ben Davis said that Doctor Strange "has a very psychedelic grounding" and that it's "not your typical Marvel action movie." He then revealed his initial reaction to the project and compared it to an original Disney animated classic. "Most of the work within it is about other dimensions," he explained. "And I described it, I think, when I was talking to Marvel as Marvel’s Fantasia, in a way, because it’s so sort of out there and different to everything else that they've done." Ben Davis continued talking up how Doctor Strange will be visually unique for the MCU and perhaps the superhero movie genre in general. "There’s a lot of previsualisation, and there’s a lot of work which is very hard," he continued. "You look at it and you see the imagery that they've created for it and you think, ‘well how the hell do we shoot that!?’ because it’s all sort of Escher stuff. It’s all very out there. I can’t really say much more about it, I'm afraid. But I think it’ll be really interesting, and it’s a very dark movie, I'm pleased to say. [DOPs] always love the word 'dark'. The trouble is that most producers don’t like dark. Mostly you get into [Digital Intermediate process] and people don’t seem to like dark anymore!"


About the Doctor Strange concept art that was showcased by Disney's African division, it apparently featured a look at Benedict Cumberbatch as neurosurgeon Stephen Strange and Sorcerer Supreme. It also echoes what DOP Ben Davis said about the movie being very dark. And thanks to HTXT.Africa as well as a series of Twitter posts, we have some fairly vague Strange details from early visuals.


Doctor Strange looks dark. Very dark. As in scraping the edge of ‘horror-movie-dark’ and information imparted about the film from Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige, supports this appraisal. According to Feige, the film will have a firm footing in the shadowy world of the occult and supernatural. While we’re not expecting it to be a true blue horror film, but if it could provide as many chills as say Constantine (the TV series, NOT the film), then that would be great. Oh, and Benedict Cumberbatch looks very fetching in his Doctor Strange get-up. Very fetching.
