There has been talk for years now about a Doctor Strange movie, Marvel has had it on its slate for too long. Now rumor has it that Doctor Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, may have a prominent role in Thor 2: The Dark World. Now the question on my mind has been how do you plan to adapt parts of the Infinity Gauntlet and tie in the whole Thanos arc without having the Sorcerer Supreme play a role! The fact that the Silver Surfer is not available due to contractual obligations to Fox is bad enough, but now is the time to call in the Doctor (and not that British one)! This rumor has been milling around for a while and has not come to light…until now. It originates from a Podcast that ‘The Playlist’ put out awhile back, so who knows with all the big developments lately if this will even pan out. But we can always hope, right? Check it:
The Playlist claimed that Natalie Portman’s character Jane Foster could be working alongside Dr. Strange in a similar capacity as she did with Stellan Skarsgård’s Dr. Erik Selvig in the first film, and that Strange would be playing a big part in “all three acts” of the film, as opposed to being relegated to a cameo-type introduction. He would play a scientist (he’s a genius neurosurgeon in the comics) and someone who’s deeply interested in Foster’s stories and knowledge about Asgard and Thor.
I like the idea, make it happen Marvel. You can test the waters and if Dr Strange hits it big he can get his own flick! Then we can really start exploring the mystic side of the Marvel U!
