Meditate on this. Kevin Feige is dismissing rumors of a hard list of directors who have been considered for a Doctor Strange movie, as well as the idea that Johnny Depp is inches away from starring in it.READ MORE

Looks like we might be seeing Doctor Strange and his snazzy cape hit the big screen sooner rather than later, at least if this rumor that Marvel is already in the process of choosing a director and screenwriters is true. But which directors are in the running, and which (in some cases) excellent films have they previously done? And when are Black Widow and/or Captain Marvel and/or Black Panther finally getting their movies? No news on that behind the jump. I just wanted to mention how Marvel’s chug-chug-chugging along on yet another white superhero movie before any superheroines or POC get their shot.READ MORE

I would never presume to impugn the honor of the Generalissimo himself, but to be fair, the guy has a pretty well documented, and lauded, in fact, talent for bombast. And that’s part of the reason why we love him. I guess what I’m saying is: hey, I’d really like to believe that Marvel is prioritizing a movie with a person of color in the lead role, but I’d also like to not be disappointed.READ MORE
Marvel President Confirms a Doctor Strange Movie, Hints at a Possible Seventh Hero for The Avengers Sequel
by Rebecca Pahle | 3:58 pm, January 26th, 2013
In an interview with MTV, Marvel President Kevin Feige confirmed that Ant-Man will be the first movie in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three (which we kind of already knew), talked about how Iron Man 3 will connect with The Avengers sequel (potentially interesting…), and confirmed that Marvel’s planning a Doctor Strange movie for after Ant-Man.
One of those bits of news is far and away more exciting than the other two, and I don’t think I need to tell you which one.READ MORE

George R. R. Martin, writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the series HBO’s Game of Thrones is based on, is a longtime comic book fan (he even wrote into a Marvel letter column in 1964). With his success, you’d think a pairing between himself and one of the big comic companies would be a no-brainer. Well, Martin is totally up for writing a specific Marvel comic, he just has a few particular demands. For instance, he would like his story to be UN-RETCONNABLE, (yes, I just made up that word, go with it), meaning Marvel wouldn’t be allowed to ever alter or erase what he wrote fromt their universe. Oh, Georgie boy, you’re a comedian.READ MORE

Take all this in with one skeptical eye, but rumors are flying wildly over the nearly-finished sets of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. Normally, we don’t hold with the sort of outlandish, unsupported rumors that come with superhero movie territory, but we can’t resist them if they’re just weird enough – or wish-fulfilling enough – to be interesting. And boy, is this one interesting. Hit the jump for wild, unabashed speculation, news about that Phase 1 box set, and some more set photos!READ MORE

Marvel has a number of mystery projects in the works that we only know the release dates for, but other than the Inhumans and Runaways, Doctor Strange is the name that keeps popping up in bits and bobs of rumory rumors like these and this.
But now, on top of all that, we’ve got the ever popular leaked evidence source of domain name purchases to go on. The Disney Music Group recently purchased a number of domain names for the soundtracks to future films in the Marvel franchise, and the list contains references to a certain Sorcerer Supreme.READ MORE

Is it really the right time to start sharing news about movies that won’t come out until 2014? I mean, sure, every year now sounds like it’s ridiculously far in the future by virtue of beginning with “201,” but come on. Even The Hobbitses will have come out by the time 2014 rolls around.
Well, apparently it is, when Marvel says it’s going to put out two movies in 2014 and doesn’t even say what they are.READ MORE
