From IGN:

Smallville's Clark Kent for Doctor Strange?

Actor rumored for Marvel movie.

UK, May 11, 2011

Marvel is reportedly interested in TV's Clark Kent for an forthcoming, undisclosed project.

Earlier today What's Playing suggested that Tom Welling was being considered by Marvel to play Doctor Stephen Strange in an upcoming adaptation. This was quickly revised, however. Their sources have since told them that while Welling hasn't been cast as Strange "that doesn't mean there isn't interest in him."

Welling being cast as the eminent surgeon Doctor Strange seems an uneasy fit, with the "Master of the Mystic Arts" typically depicted as an older man.

Back in April, IGN reported that Patrick Dempsey, star of Grey's Anatomy, was actively pursuing the role of Stephen Strange, though all seems to have gone quiet on that front as well.

Marvel has, of course, many property-shaped irons in the fire, with the Runaways being mentioned as another possibility for Welling.

What do you think? Who could Welling play in the Marvel Universe? As always, leave your comments below, and be sure to check out our mega-preview of the Smallville finale.

Welling could do a Marvel movie provided it was the right casting for him, definatly not Dr. Strange. Besides look at Ryan Reynolds, he jumped from Marvel to DC. they should just keep Welling and Durance and make a spin-off called "Metropolis" up the budget a little with more action and a little less soap opera and you have the makings of a pretty decent series. Oh and not every villian needs to look human...

Update on Marvel's Dr. Strange Movie

by ShockTillYouDrop

January 25, 2012

Marvel's upcoming Dr. Strange movie is something we're watching closely here because, well, we dig the character and it delves into the supernatural at times.

The last update we received, writers Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer turned in a draft and that script. Domain names connected with Dr. Strange were being secured last fall. The news has not been groundbreaking, but they're definitely baby steps

The latest morsel of news comes via an interview with Sean Carroll, a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology, who served as an advisor on the science behind Thor. The interview was conducted over at io9 who dropped the following update.

Now that Carroll's done with Thor, he's moved on to Doctor Strange, about a surgeon who becomes earth's Sorcerer Supreme. Carroll's job is to apply limits to Strange's powers. "You need constraints to provide tension," he says. A world where anything can happen makes for a very boring movie. It's when science imposes boundaries on what a superhero can do that the real drama begins.

Yeah, take that superheroes...drop some reality on your ass and give you limitations! Ahem, more on Dr. Strange as it comes in.

Viggo Mortensen Will Not Be Doctor Strange

by SuperHeroHype

September 13, 2012

Another healthy rumor that has been making the rounds online is both that Dr. Strange will appear in the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel Thor: The Dark World and that actor Viggo Mortensen will be playing the Sorcerer Supreme. In an interview with Omelete (via Collider), Marvel producer Victoria Alonso shot down the rumor pretty quickly.

"We would love to work with Viggo Mortensen. I've been trying that for years. But I don't know if Viggo is even acting anymore. I thought he wasn’t acting anymore. It would be great to work with him in the future, but we don’t have him signed, no."

He is still acting, but now that the rumor has been put to rest you might start hearing people say that it's simply misdirection on Marvel Studios' part, although that seems rather unlikely now.

Last we heard about a Dr. Strange film, the script had been completed by writers Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer (Conan the Barbarian, Sahara) with Marvel Studios actively seeking out a director for the project.

Kevin Feige Confirms Early Doctor Strange Plans

by SuperHeroHype

January 25, 2013

We're just over three months from the official launch of Marvel Studios' "Phase Two" of their cinematic universe when Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3. Today, President of Production Kevin Feige updated MTV with plans for future big screen entries that look even further into the futre. Ant-Man, he says, will officially launch "Phase Three" and early plans also call for the long-rumored Doctor Strange to be included.

"'Ant-Man' is definitely part of Phase Three," Feige explains. "Like 'Iron Man 3,' it's certainly set in the Marvel Universe, but it's also through the lens of Edgar Wright — which is the only reason we're making the movie... It's very much an 'Ant-Man' origin movie from the perspective of Edgar Wright and his co-writer Joe Cornish. It will of course be firmly planted in the MCU, but a different corner than we've seen before."

The official line-up for "Phase Two", then, includes Iron Man 3 in May, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, Captain America: The Winter Solider on April 4, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014 and, finally, The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015. That's all in addition to the upcoming Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, now filming its pilot episode. After that, there are several new characters being considered for features.

"'Doctor Strange,' which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of them," Feige continues. "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."

Check back for updates on the future of Marvel on the big screen as they become available.

Doctor Strange Movie Is 'Next Up' Says Kevin Feige

Provisional work has started on the movie. Feige hints at Phase Three release.

by Daniel Krupa

May 7, 2013

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that work has started on a Doctor Strange movie.

In an interview with Collider, Feige said, “Dr. Strange is something that I talk about often and it’s sort of next up for us to dig into and explore. Our executive producer of Iron Man 3, having done Captain America: The First Avenger and as that was finishing he started working on the bones that would become Iron Man 3, and now that he’s finished with Iron Man 3, he’s working on the bones that would become Doctor Strange. Now that Iron Man 3 is finished, some of our quote-unquote spare time is going to be devoted to trying to crack Strange.” A little bit of rummaging around on IMDb points towards that unnamed producer being Alan Fine.

Feige went on to imply that Doctor Strange would fall into what is being referred to as 'Phase Three' in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will kick-off with Edgar Wright's Ant-Man on November 6, 2015.

“As we look past 2015, past Avengers 2 and Ant-Man," said Feige. "I think Doctor Strange should be one of the next movies in the years following that.”

If it was the next film after Ant-Man, that would point towards a April/May 2016 release date.

Doctor Strange Movie Villain Rumors

This could be one of Marvel's Phase 3 titles.

by Jim Vejvoda

June 20, 2013

Who might Doctor Strange do battle with if and when his big screen debut finally happens?

According to Latino-Review, the heavies of the possible Marvel Phase 3 movie will be the evil mystic entity Dormammu, his subordinate (and, like Doctor Strange, a pupil of the Ancient One) Baron Mordo and the inter-dimensional minions known as the Mindless Ones.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Being Considered for Doctor Strange?

by SuperHeroHype

July 15, 2013

The future for Marvel's movies is very mysterious. With three untitled films dated for release in 2016 and 2017, many fans have been speculating about what is to come in "Phase 3." Doctor Strange is one of many characters who has been rumored for a Phase 3 movie, mostly due to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige's very public interest in the property.

Now, Latino-Review is reporting the rumor that Marvel Studios wants The Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play the titular character in the film. Levitt was previously considered for the Star-Lord role in Guardians of the Galaxy, which does lend some credence to this rumor, but do keep in mind that this isn't official and that talks with the actor may not have even begun.

What do you think of the rumor? Do you want to see Levitt as Doctor Strange? Sound off below!

I could actually see that, and he's such a good actor I think he would fit.

Although I'd still rather see someone a bit older. Nathan Fillion or Daniel Day Lewis come to mind.

Johnny Depp in Early Talks for Doctor Strange?

SuperHeroHype

Jan 14, 2014

Latino Review is reporting that Marvel Studios has taken a meeting with Johnny Depp to discuss him potentially starring as Stephen Strange in their long gestating Doctor Strange film. This remains a rumor for the time being, as Variety claims "such talks have yet to take place and any possibility of such a pairing is premature.​" Check back here for further updates on the matter as we learn them.

A film based on Doctor Strange has been in development for some time, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously saying: "He checks the box off this criteria that I have: he’s totally different from anything else we have." Marvel has already set release dates for three untitled films in 2016 and 2017, could one of them be Doctor Strange?

*Yawn - seriously rumors, rumors, rumors.

As much as I love Depp and I think he'd be good as Strange, really it's time to give iconic roles to someone else. This could be a career making role, give it to someone fresh faced.

I love Johnny Depp, but I don't think he's even remotely right for this role. He'll want to put his spin on it, and it won't be the Dr Strange we expect or want.

For my money, I'd love to see Timothy Olyphant or Jason Isaacs. Both of them could do it, and both have the acting chops. Plus they'd be unexpected, and would really get that buzz factor going. Depp is the bigger name (obviously) but I just don't like the thought of him in this role.

Marvel Studios Begins Eyeing Directors for Doctor Strange!

SuperHeroHype

Feb 20, 2014

Marvel Studios has started looking for talent to helm their upcoming Doctor Strange. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the current names in contention include Mark Andrews (Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (the upcoming Welcome to Yesterday). Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger (Kung Fu Panda) are also said to have met with the studio on the project, but as screenwriters only.

"[Doctor Strange] checks the box off this criteria that I have," Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told us recently about the long-gestating feature. "He’s totally different from anything else we have."

Although a specific release date for Doctor Strange has not yet been set, Marvel has three placeholder dates set for unnamed features on May 6 and July 8, 2016 and on May 5, 2017. It's starting to look more and more likely that the good doctor will be claiming one of those spots.
