Possible Synopsis For Doctor Strange?

JoBlo has posted a synopsis for Doctor Strange but it's unknown if this the film's official tagline. A script by has been handed into Marvel Studios by Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. There have been rumors that actors such as Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes, War Horse, Star Trek 2, Hobbit) and Javier Bardem (Skyfall, No Country For Oldmen) have been wanted for the film. Marvel's Kevin Feige has stated we would see the film "sooner rather than later". Take that statement as you will but Strange seems to be high priority to Marvel. If the studio does indeed shoot three productions in 2012 it wouldn't be hard to see Doctor Strange go into production in 2013. Leading the film to fill one of the 2014 release dates Marvel has set aside.

"Doctor Strange centres around a New York surgeon, who stops running his practice after suffering injuries in a car crash. He then becomes a drifter and heads to the Himalayas, where he meets a healer and discovers that he has a great psychic power to fight against evil. Doctor Strange boasts powers that includes telepathy, teleportation, energy and astral projection."

 Io9 also had some Doctor Strange tidbits as well. They spoke to theoretical physicist Sean Carroll. A science expert that contributed to Thor and is now working with Marvel on Strange. Sean talks about limiting the heroes abilities and the setting real limits for this world.

"You need constraints to provide tension...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."
