30 June 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kevin Feige has been a busy man lately. Marvel Studios’ head honcho has been promoting the imminent theatrical release of the McU’s next movie Ant-Man and during the press day Feige also revealed a bunch of information about some other upcoming Marvel flicks.

After officially announcing Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man and that he will appear in Captain America: Civil War, naturally lots of folk wanted to know more about his role. Feige talked openly about what to expect from the McU version of Spider-Man and more importantly how he will interact with other superheroes.

Feige also discussed the upcoming Scott Derrickson directed Doctor Strange and answered questions about Black Panther too. But one movie that hasn’t really been talked about that much is Thor: Ragnarok.  Recent rumours suggested that Kenneth Branagh – who directed the first Thor movie back in 2011 – might be making a return, however when »

Kevin Feige Talks "Doctor Strange" Weirdness

29 June 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

We had 'Winter Soldier' and "Guardians of the Galaxy" in 2014, 'Ultron' and "Ant-Man" this year, and in 2016 Marvel is continuing its approach of pumping out a high-profile sequel early in the Summer followed by a new property in the latter half of the year.

Whilst we get "Captain America: Civil War" early next year, after that will come Scott Derrickson's film adaptation of the "Doctor Strange" comics. As "Thor" and then 'Guardians' established and then further explored the cosmic aspects of the Marvel cinematic universe, 'Strange' is slated to introduce mystical aspects.

There's no doubt it'll be a weird project, and the post-credits of the upcoming "Ant-Man" is said to boast the first hint of how strange the film might get. Speaking with Birth Movies Death this weekend, Marvel's Kevin Feige says we've yet to see just how crazy this world can get:

Feige has confirmed at a press event for Ant-Man that Stephen Strange will indeed be living in New York saying, “The Sanctum is on Bleeker Street, the modern day Bleeker Street. He will be the strangest thing walking out onto that street.”

Casting for the movie is currently taking place in London ahead of the movie starting production in November. One bit of casting that has caused a few stirs around the Internet is Tilda Swinton playing The Ancient One. “As we were developing this film we looked at The Ancient One as a mantle more than a specific person,” Fiege said of the gender change. “The sorcerers have been around for millennia, protecting us from »

Watch This Superb Fan Made Title Sequence For Doctor Strange

28 June 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While we may be a year and a half from Scott Derrickson exploring the mystical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Benedict Cumberbatch in tow, there is quite a bit of excitement for Doctor Strange (especially with a cast that includes the one time Khan and Smaug, Tilda Swinton, and Chiwetel Ejiofor). For Alex Silver of This Is Productions it proved too much to bare, and he created his own vision of what a Doctor Strange title sequence would look like, and it’s pretty damn spectacular. Set to The Flaming Lips’ “W.A.N.D.”, it is incredibly well made for a fan effort, and captures the trepans the character has traded in since his creation in the 60’s. Check it out below. Doctor Strange is released November 6th 2016. »

Watch: This Fan-Made Doctor Strange Title Sequence Is Kind of Great

27 June 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel Studios is poised to make its first foray into the realm of the mystical with 2016’s Doctor Strange, and while the initial casting process for the comics adaptation was rather lengthy, things are now barreling towards a late 2015 start-date for production. The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister director Scott Derrickson is helming the picture, with Benedict Cumberbatch starring in the lead role of Doctor Strange, a Tony Stark-esque cocky surgeon who loses the use of his hands in an accident and, while on a subsequent quest to heal himself, stumbles across magic. Casting is underway, with Tilda Swinton in negotiations to play Strange’s mentor the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor in talks to reportedly play the villainous Baron Mordo, but we’re still about a year and a half away from the film’s release. With Marvel skipping Comic-Con this summer, we shouldn’t expect to see »

'Deus Ex' Movie Announcement Is Coming Soon

20 June 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Everyone keeps expected video game movies to take off the way superhero movies have, but that just hasn't happened yet, with most being critically derided and not very well received by fans. Hollywood is hoping to change that with two big 2016 releases, Warcraft and Assassin's Creed. If they are as successful as expected, more will surely follow. Including a movie based on the popular Deus Ex franchise. Square Enix, publisher of the title, arrived at E3 2015 with, not news of the movie, but news of an announcement for the movie. Yes, according to producer Adrian Askarieh, we'll definitely know more about the Deus Ex movie sometime this summer.

The new video game sequel Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was being showcased at E3. It is a follow-up to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a title in the franchise that became so popular, it rejuvenated the series and was set up as a movie at CBS Films. »

Chiwetel Ejiofor to star as Baron Mordo in Doctor Strange

12 June 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor will star as Baron Mordo in Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange‘, according to a report.

Chiwetel Ejiofor will reportedly star as Baron Mordo in Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange‘.

The 37-year-old actor will appear opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the Scott Derrickson-directed movie, which is due out in November 2016.

Although the character is typically portrayed as a villain in Marvel comic books, Deadline has suggested the Disney-owned company will downplay Mordo’s evil ways when he reaches the big screen.

Meanwhile, Chiwetel’s new on-screen co-star Benedict insisted earlier this year that he doesn’t think it’s a risk to take on the lead role in a Marvel movie.

The 38-year-old actor is confident the film will be a success, observing that Marvel has an unrivaled ability to bring lesser-known characters to life.

He shared: “I don’t think it’s a risk because of Marvel.

Chiwetel Ejiofor to Play 'Doctor Strange' Villain Baron Mordo

11 June 2015 4:25 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It was revealed back in January that Chiwetel Ejiofor, who recently gave a true powerhouse performance in 12 Years a Slave, was circling a key role in Marvel's Doctor Strange. What the role would be, however, was still speculative.  Well, speculate no more! Deadline has revealed that Ejiofor will be playing classic Doctor Strange enemy Baron Mordo. It's still unclear what, if any, storyline from the comics Scott Derrickson's movie will be adapting, but in the early days of Doctor Strange Mordo was another one of the pupils learning the ways of magic from The Ancient One (recently cast as Tilda Swinton). He becomes a bit more interested in the darker side of the mystical arts, though, and plots to kill The Ancient One. Strange tries to foil his plot, and in...

Marvel's Doctor Strange: Chiwetel Ejiofor's role revealed

11 June 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chiwetel Ejiofor is to appear opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's Doctor Strange film. And now we know where he fits in.

Very slowly, the casting for the Doctor Strange movie is falling into place. The second of Marvel Studios' 2016 release, the film will star Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, with Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us From Evil, Sinister) directing.

A little while back, it was rumoured that Chiwetel Ejiofor was up for a role in the film. It increasingly seems like he's on board too, and Deadline has added a few more details.

Apparently, Ejiofor is in line to play Baron Mordo. The character was introduced as a villain originally in the comics, although Deadline notes that that may not be the case in the film. Rather, that Baron Mordo may be "an amalgamation of characters culled from Doctor Strange's mythology".

We already know that Tilda Swinton is playing The Ancient One, »
