Alright Iron Man you had your time to shine, now blast off for something a bit more supernatural. The president of Marvel Studios revealed that ‘Dr. Strange’ could hit the cinema as early as 2016 if everything goes according to plan.
In two separate articles on Collider Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, talked about a few projects and left a few hints about upcoming franchises. In the interview Feige talked about moving on from Iron Man and getting to work on Dr. Strange saying, “‘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’.”
Feige wouldn’t give an exact date on when the film is expected to release but did say it would arrive after ‘Avengers 2’ and after ‘Ant-Man’ stating, “As we look past 2015, past ‘Avengers 2’ and ‘Ant-Man,’ I think ‘Dr. Strange’ should be one of the next movies in the years following that.” So Strange fans will have to wait until at least 2016 to see the film as of now.
In another question, EW asked if we would see more television series involving the Marvel Universe. Feige answered, “If that works the way everyone expects it to work I think that would open up another avenue, another outlet for some of those characters. Maybe they guest star, I don’t know. I think they’re avoiding the cameo of the week on that show, which is very smart.”
