It will be post-Avengers 2...
Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige has confirmed that Doctor Strange will be getting his own big-budget live-action movie. Feige spoke with MTV News about the studio's plans for the next phase of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and confirmed that not only is the Ant-Man film set for then, but so is the master of mysticism.
"Ant-Man is definitely part of Phase Three," Feige said. "Like Iron Man 3, it's certainly set in the Marvel Universe, but it's also through the lens of Edgar Wright — which is the only reason we're making the movie... It's very much an Ant-Man origin movie from the perspective of Edgar Wright and his co-writer Joe Cornish. It will of course be firmly planted in the MCU, but a different corner than we've seen before."
He added, "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. He's totally different from anything we've done before, as is 'Ant-Man,' which keeps us excited."
