Marvel Proceeds With “Doctor Strange” Film

With “The Avengers” hitting next Summer, Marvel looks to be quietening down a bit for the forseeable future. Or are they?

“Iron Man 3” and “Thor 2” are already slated for a 2013 release, while Twitchfilm reports that a script by “Sahara” and “Conan the Barbarian” remake scribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer has been turned in for a “Doctor Strange” movie.

Marvel is reportedly already looking for possible directors and has forwarded candidates the script in hopes of finding someone to continue development on the project.

The news comes shortly after it was confirmed that “Scott Pilgrim” helmet Edgar Wright had finished his scripting work for Marvel’s “Ant-Man” movie – no word as yet on when that film might see the light of day.
