Screenwriters sign on for Dr Strange Film Adaption

Marvel Studios has hired Conanscribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write Dr. Strange, marking forward progress on a long-gestating superhero property which will likely be among the first Marvel films generated under the Disney banner. – Deadline

Dr Strange was co-created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko and first appeared in Strange Tales #110 (July 1963). A former surgeon Stephen Strange aka Doctor Strange is a master of the mystic arts, and known as “Sorcerer Supreme.”

Dr Strange was one of my fave marvel characters as a kid so I’m excited to see the film adaption moving forward. I’m still not sure how it will work as a film or what’s the best way to approach this kind of character.  I’m guessing, like every other comic book hero adaptation, the first film will be a origin tale, although we already got a great origin tale in the animated film that Marvel put out a few years back.

After the success of Iron Man  I definitely have high hopes that they will at least try to do the character justice.

I just hope that Marvel studios don’t decide to give him a weird perm like their last live action Dr Strange.

    So long as Steven Strange has a big, droopy pornstar mustache and thows up the horns when he’s casting, we’re all good in the hood.

    If only Tom Selleck were 30 years younger or John C. Holmes wasn’t so dead.
