Better get ready to polish of your Eye of Agamotto, because it looks like Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, is officially joining Ant-Man on his way to the big screen.
With Marvel's Phase Two currently underway with Iron Man 3
, Thor: The Dark World
, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier
, it's no surprise that the movie arm of The House of Ideas is already forging ahead on its next set of films.
In a recent interview with MTV Splash Page
, President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, dropped a few tidbits about Marvel's upcoming film line-up.
"'Ant-Man' is definitely part of Phase Three. 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... Beyond that... 'Ant-Man' is the only one officially announced, but you probably don't have to look too far to guess at the next list of characters we're toying with and beginning to develop."
Feige went on to pinpoint just which one of these characters was on the list.
"'Doctor Strange,' which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of them. 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."
Ant-Man and Doctor Strange don't have proper release dates just yet, but it's safe to assume fans will be waiting until at least 2015.
