Scott Derrickson to direct "Dr. Strange" for Marvel Studios

Recommended Posts

Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Deliver Us From Evil) is reportedly closing a deal to direct Dr. Strange for Marvel Studios and Disney.

Provided Marvel doesn't "encourage" Derrickson to go with someone else, this will be Christopher Young's third Marvel film.

I thought Season 3 was delayed because both Freeman and Cumberbatch were working on Hobbit (and a million other things)

Cumberbatch is a safe, predictable choice. I think he'll do just fine, I would've liked for Marvel to try more out-of-the-box casting. Ethan Hawke would've been a nice dark horse candidate, and would be familiar with Derrickson since both did Sinister together. Or even Ewan McGregor, he would've been good too.

Let's bring Leonardo DiCaprio to the negotiation table.

Also, the link is misleading since this is not confirmed or a done deal.

Seems like it's close to being done, as the trades would caution otherwise. Seems like all Cumberbatch has to do is sign the contract.
