Doctor Strange is a 2016 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero Doctor Strange. It is the fourteenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while also being the second installment of Phase Three.


From Marvel comes DOCTOR STRANGE, the story of the world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place - a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange -- armed with newly acquired magical powers - is forced to to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.[7]

Kevin Feige only had this to say, "I think 'Dr. Strange' would kick ass. I think we've done very well at the superhero genre, if you will, this street level superhero aspect of the Marvel Universe. I think with Thor you'll see us cracking into the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe in a very good way that's never been done before in our movies and I'd love to get into that supernatural element. I think that Dr. Strange could be a good way of being the lynchpin to that universe with Werewolf By Night, with Blade again someday – that side of the Marvel Universe."

In January 2013, Kevin Feige spoke about characters he considered might be going into development in Phase 3, "Doctor Strange, which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of them. He's a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he's totally different from anything else we have, just like Guardians Of The Galaxy,"

On June 3, 2014 Scott Derrickson tweeted that his next movie will be Doctor Strange, and that casting directors were looking at Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch for the lead role.

In August, 2014, conflicting reports were given as to the plot of the movie, whether or not it would be an origin story.[21]

In September 2014, the film was announced to begin shooting in May 2015 at Pinewood-Shepperton studios in the UK.[22]

On August 29, 2014, it was announced that Joaquin Phoenix entered final negotiations.[23]

On October 1, 2014, it was announced that talks with Phoenix have ended and the studio is actively searching for their lead actor.[24] In December 2014, Deadline reported that Phoenix never had a deal with Marvel Studios.[25] On October 27, 2014, it was revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch was in final negotiations to play Doctor Strange.[26] At the end of October, it was announced on the Marvel Event Liveblog it will be released on November 4, 2016.[27]

On December 4, 2014, Marvel finalized its deal with Benedict Cumberbatch to portray Stephen Strange.[28]

On January 22, 2015, it was reported that Marvel is looking to cast Chiwetel Ejiofor in an unspecified role.[29] On June 11, 2015, Chiwetel Ejiofor was cast as Baron Mordo.[30]

On July 14, 2015, Tilda Swinton was cast as the Ancient One.[31]

On 15 August, 2015, at D23, Kevin Feige confirmed that Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tilda Swinton have joined the cast of Doctor Strange as Karl Mordo and the Ancient One, respectively, while also showing off new concept art for the series that gave fans their first look at the design of star Benedict Cumberbatch's costume.[32]

According to Variety, Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to play one of the villians in the film. While sources say no offer has been delivered, one is expected shortly.[33] Marvel officially announced Mikkelen's role when they announced that the movie had began production.[1]
