"So, for Dr. Strange they've had a script in-house forever. It is a pretty standard origin story for Doctor Strange. It's got Baron Mordo as the bad guy. That's all gone. Marvel's new thing is no more origin stories. So, Dr. Strange movie no longer has an origin. It begins in medias res. It has Dr. Strange already established as the Sorcerer Supreme. It is a totally new script. Jon Spaihts is working totally new, On his own, without any of the previous stuff. Not even touching the previous script."

That contradicts the newer information about this not being an origin story, but I hope the tone will remain similar to what Feige described.

High hopes for this.

I'm kinda glad Edgar Wright was let go directing Ant-Man; he wouldn't let Ant-Man join the MCU preferring to make it a stad-alone film which is completely absurd since in the original stories, Ant-Man along with Wasp was one of the founding members of the Avengers.

I really dont care about that.

He clearly wanted to make a different kind of film then the usual Marvel action/epic. It's a pity Marvel didnt let him.

He could've done it, but at some point he should've let the character leeway into joining the MCU.

If he wanted a film noir caper that would've been fine but not letting Ant-Man join is pretty absurd.

Just look at Captain America: The Winter Soldier or Thor: The Dark World and see how completely different they are, and yet they're still part of the MCU.

Marvel needs to start doing something else then the typical film they have been making since Iron Man!

Sure, and then you'll start complaining and say things like: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

You might be kidding, but you're a prophet.

A Giacchino scored Ant-man would be pretty fun!

For whatever reason I thought Judy Greer was the mother from Arrested Development and was baffled at what you guys were talking about.

Just occurred to me.

None of the Marvel MCU films really deal with their hero having a secret identity at all.

Iron Man until the final scene.

The Incredible Hulk.

Then they abandoned the concept.

Thor toyed with it in the first movie - he pretended to be Dr. Donald Blake for some scenes, which is his alter-ego in the comics.

We'll see what they do with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Avengers 2

And Captain America and Thor don't have alter egos

So Ant-Man will drive a Ford Transit in San Francisco..

This needs a spoiler warning!

Why has San Francisco been in SO many movies of late? Star Trek Into Darkness, Godzilla, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.... all feature landmarks of the city destroyed!

Well San Francisco has traditionally been the location of Starfleet headquarters, so that makes sense.

Having SF in Godzilla made a lot more sense then having the monster destroy New York in the Emmerich film, since it's on the Pacific side. (gotta love the fact that to get to NY, Godzilla travelled via the Panama Canal in the 98 film)
