Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange (TBA)

Director Guillermo Del Toro is rumored to be attached to Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange with Neil Gaiman (Stardust) writing the screenplay. It's unknown if the project will start pre-production before or after The Avengers film. Strange was eventually added to the Avengers and his character would fit Guillermo's love for magic and fantasy perfectly. Marvel Studios seems to like releasing project news prematurely about projects such as Captain America, Ant-Man and Nick Fury they have been announced then the news drys up. With Del Toro busy with two Hobbit movies and a possible Hellboy 3, Strange might not start production until 2011 or 2012. It's still an interesting take on the superhero genre. " A subtly maimed surgeon finds a new life when a wizard trains him to become the new Sorcerer Supreme of Earth."

No casting news or rumors have started yet but I would love to see Johnny Depp play the role. It's not that wild of an idea since Depp has enjoyed working on the Pirate movies, and loves working with genre directors. High profile and credited actors are playing comic book heroes and villains so that also may be a draw for him.
