Doctor Strange Gets A Release Date

Doctor Strange will arrive in US cinemas on 8 July 2016, according to a new report, with filming to potentially start this year.

Screen Daily has outed the summer 2016 date, though there’s no word on a UK release just yet. However the same report does say that some of the shooting will take place in Britain’s Pinewood-Shepperton studios, similar to some previous Marvel films.

Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us From Evil, The Day the Earth Stood Still) is set to direct, though we still don’t know who will actually be playing Strange himself. Both Joaquin Phoenix and Jack Huston have been rumoured for the part.

Finally, the report claims that Marvel is in “advanced negotiations” with Pinewood-Shepperton to get filming in late 2014 or early 2015, meaning it shouldn’t be long before we start hearing more about the project.

For the uninitiated, Doctor Strange follows the story of a surgeon who is forced to abandon his job after a severe car accident, only to meet a healer known as The Ancient One and tap into some mystical psychic powers.

    This is cool news, looking forward to seeing this world on the big screen. Admittedly I’ve never read a single Doctor Strange comic but I have played the Doctor Strange Table in Zen Pinball and I liked what I saw.

    It sounds interesting, because I’ve heard of Doctor Strange, and it would be good if he were in his own movie.
    The question is who would play the part?

      They’ve been trying to sign Joaquin Phoenix for a while but he’s reportedly reluctant to take on the lead role in a tentpole blockbuster (and sign for a further number of films). Here’s a great fan mock-up of how he could look: http://bit.ly/1uS0ffo
