You know, Marvel has been talking about doing lots of movies, but long, bitter experience has taught us all most of them probably aren’t going to happen. Just like DC will never actually adapt James Robinson’s “Starman” or bring “Sandman” to the screen, some movies are just too weird to make. Except, apparently, “Doctor Strange”.
Supposedly, the screenwriters have finished a draft and Marvel’s currently shopping it around to directors. Sadly, nobody has the shortlist of directors Marvel wants, but we’re assuming it’s fairly short on directors who’d actually do the trippy artwork of Ditko’s classic run justice. Seriously, a Terry Gillam or Alejandro Jodorowsky Doctor Strange would be absolutely brilliant. Also probably completely impossible to market except to that small intersection between comic nerds and film nerds, but they need love too.
