Scott Derrickson to Direct Dr. Strange
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.03.2014





Marvel has, perhaps appropriately, tapped a horror director for the film about their Sorcerer Supreme. Variety reports that Scott Derrickson, who has directed Sinister and the upcoming Deliver Us From Evil, is in talks to direct Dr. Strange. Sources note that the talks are early but that Derrickson is Marvel's choice and that the deal should be closed soon.

Dr. Strange, real name Stephen Vincent Strange, is one of the foremost mystics in the Marvel Universe. Dubbed the Sorcerer Supreme, he was an egotistical neurosurgeon who damaged his hands in a car accident, ruining his medicinal career. Obsessed with a cure and destitute, he turns to the mystical arts after discovering a hermit who is actually the Ancient One, the Earth's Sorcerer Supreme. After he helps the Ancient One thwart his villainous disciple Baron Mordo, he learns the ways of magic and inherits the Sorcerer Supreme title.

There was a brief reference to Strange in Captain America: The Winter Soldier when it is noted that Hydra has been keeping tabs on several potential threats; Stephen Strange is name-dropped there. There was also a reference to Strange in Thor where the Eye of Agamotto--a powerful mystical relic that belonged to a previous Sorcerer Supreme and a version of which is worn by Strange--is seen in Odin's vault.

No official release date is set for the film; casting for the titular character will be the next step. There is not said to be a front-runner at this time.
