Doctor Strange Movie

Doctor Strange MovieLooks like there's going to be a live-action Doctor Strange movie. Back in October 2008 Marvel's Kevin Feige already told MTV that a Doctor Strange movie was likely in the coming years:

"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 tapping into the magical realm of the Marvel Universe, which is fairly significant and hasn't yet seen life on screen. [...] I's something I'm very, very interested in."
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige

Well, he once again mentioned Doctor Strange during the last comic con:

"What happens after Avengers is what's being discussed now. Obviously, you've heard about Doctor Strange. I've been a vocal fan of Strange for a long time."
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige

Scriptwritters Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer have even been hired by Marvel to pen a script for the Doctor Strange movie.

For those who are not familiar with Doctor Strange, he's a superhero from the Marvel universe. Well, not exactly the usual kind of superhero: he's a former surgeon who became the most powerful sorcerer on Earth. He is a master of the mystic arts, using his abilities to battle evil magicians and other supernatural villains, and is also often consulted by other superheroes on supernatural matters.

Plot:
"Stephen Strange is a world-renowned but selfish neurosurgeon, until a car accident damaged his hands, preventing him from conducting surgery. Depressed and scouring the world for a cure to his condition, Strange locates a hermit called the Ancient One in the Himalayas. After Strange selflessly attempts to thwart the Ancient One’s traitorous disciple, Baron Mordo, he is taught the mystic arts.
As the Ancient One's disciple, Strange encounters the entity Nightmare and a number of odd mystical foes, before battling his eventual arch-foe: Dormammu, a warlord from an alternate dimension called the Dark Dimension."

There's a rumor about Actor Adrien Brody playing the role of Doctor Strange, but nothing official yet.

More details about the movie Doctor Strange soon!
