Fantasia 2014: The predictable elements of ‘Predestination’ are compensated with emotional satisfaction

29 July 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Predestination

Written and directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig (credited as The Spierig Brothers)

Australia, 2014

A guy walks into a bar, and he says, “Ouch!”

Two guys walk into a bar – second guy should have seen it coming.

That joke your grandfather told you could easily double for the pitch to Predestination, the new paradoxical time travel riddle by Australian directing duo The Spierig Brothers.

Based on Robert A. Heinlein’s short story All You Zombies, Predestination sees an unnamed agent (Ethan Hawke) for the temporal agency leap through time to catch an elusive serial murderer known as The Fizzle Bomber before he destroys over ten city blocks in New York. The only problem is the bomber seems to be aware of the attempts to stop him, as he keeps changing the specific day and time of his latest catastrophe. While undercover as a bartender, Hawke’s agent strikes »

Here's Why Marvel Didn't Confirm Any New Movie Titles

28 July 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was a borderline tragedy to Marvel fans this weekend, as the company only announced one film on their upcoming film slate (Guardians Of The Galaxy 2) despite eight release dates hovering on the horizon. Fans know to expect Doctor Strange given the recent hiring of director Scott Derrickson, and there's certainly room for a third Avengers, with writers hired for Thor 3. That leaves four release dates without titles. Why weren't they confirmed? The issue is a simple one: Marvel doesn't know what these movies are either. In some ways, Marvel has revolutionized blockbuster filmmaking. All it takes is a small last-minute addition to a movie and suddenly the Marvel world spiderwebs even further. Samuel L. Jackson's end-of-credits cameo as Nick Fury in Iron Man was an afterthought. By 2011, the Red Skull would control the Tesseract, just the first in a series of magical MacGuffins teasing the arrival of Thanos, »

Robert Downey Jr. brings roses and Josh Brolin as every Avenger gets a Marvel panel moment

26 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego — Rumor had it that during their highly anticipated Comic-Con panel Marvel Studios would announce which actor is playing the new Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming big screen adaptation. Rumor also had it that Marvel would reveal who is playing Captain Marvel, a much-needed super-powered female Avenger that is expected to cameo in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Neither event happened. Instead, the studio announced that a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" has already been greenlit and it already has a release date of July 28, 2017. Oh yeah, and they showed a massive amount of footage from Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel with almost the entire cast on hand. A who's who of Hollywood stars including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elisabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Paul Bettany »

Marvel Reportedly in Talks with Joaquin Phoenix for 'Doctor Strange'

25 July 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Marvel's big presentation at Comic-Con isn't until Saturday (July 26 at 5:30 p.m. Pst, to be specific), and people have been wondering for quite some time what exactly it'll be showing off at the event. The most pervasive rumor is that the folks at Marvel will be announcing who will play Doctor Strange for director Scott Derrickson, but Marvel Studios honcho Kevin Fiege has insisted in press all week long that their presentation is going to be dictated by what kind of paperwork is signed by then. Well, according to the Wrap, which broke the news, the person Marvel is trying to lock down as the sorcerer supreme is none other than Joaquin Phoenix. The website stresses that no deal has been signed, but that he is most definitely the front-runner and...

Joaquin Phoenix heavily linked to Marvel's Doctor Strange

Could Marvel's Doctor Strange movie see Joaquin Phoenix taking the title role? Strong hints suggest that the job is his...

News

The odds are shortening on Joaquin Phoenix joining the Marvel universe, and being confirmed as Doctor Strange this coming weekend. Given that we're a website with no shortage of egg on our faces from past predictions, we'd advise a little salt until everything has been confirmed. But with Benedict Cumberbatch suggesting he wasn't in the running for the Doctor Strange role now, "multiple individuals close to the casting process" have been calling it: Joaquin Phoenix is Marvel's Doctor Strange in director Scott Derrickson's upcoming movie.

We'll find out probably tomorrow if that's actually the case. There's still talk that Justin Theroux is still in the running, but don't rule out that contracts aren't yet inked with whoever the successful candidate is. Go with the bulk of trade reporters now though, »

Joaquin Phoenix in Doctor Strange talks

25 July 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sources have confirmed to Screendaily that the actor is in negotiations to star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming adaptation.

Scott Derrickson will direct the story, long regarded as one of the tougher big screen prospects.

That has not diminished fan excitement, however. Doctor Strange is a neurosurgeon charged with protecting earth from paranormal threats.

Only on Thursday (24) Benedict Cumberbatch, appearing at the DreamWorks Animation panel, made what he called an in-joke that those familiar with the world of Doctor Strange would understand.

That comment sparked a fair amount of speculation as to the British actor’s possible participation in the film.

For now however, all eyes are focused on Phoenix, the Oscar nominee whose latest film Inherent Vice will receive its world premiere on October 4 as the centerpiece selection at the New York Film Festival. »

Joaquin Phoenix In Early Talks For Doctor Strange

25 July 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since Scott Derrickson was confirmed as director, the big question swirling around Marvel’s adaption of Doctor Strange is who will play the Sorcerer Supreme. The question may now have an answer, with The Wrap reporting that Joaquin Phoenix is in early talks about the role.Despite rumours swirling around such notable names as Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Justin Theroux and Jared Leto, it would appear that Phoenix is closer than anyone to making a deal. That said, there has been no official confirmation and even the site’s sources have specified that there’s no contract in place just yet. Phoenix also seems a surprising choice given his apparent reluctance to take on blockbuster roles in recent years and Marvel’s reputation for having actors sign multi-role contracts.The character of Doctor Strange was originally conjured from the brains of Stan Lee and art genius Steve Ditko, and began »

Joaquin Phoenix Rumored for 'Dr. Strange' Role, Cumberbatch Out

25 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last time Joaquin Phoenix found his name mentioned with regard to a superhero movie it was rumors he'd be playing Lex Luthor in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a role that eventually went to Jesse Eisenberg. Now his name is back in the trades in connection to Marvel's Doctor Strange, which is to be directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose). The news comes from The Wrap where it's said Phoenix's name is "mentioned most often" for the role and "is in consideration and has had discussions about the movie." Adding to the rumor, The Playlist notes tweets in which Phoenix was apparently seen in Connecticut in comic book stores purchasing "Doctor Strange" comics. https://twitter.com/KevinInChains/statuses/490269444568928257 https://twitter.com/TonytheNunes/statuses/491959469652582400 Meanwhile, if you thought Benedict Cumberbatch was the one taking the role, he recently told MTV it just wouldn't work.

Joaquin Phoenix reportedly being courted for Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'

25 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Well, maybe Benedict Cumberbatch really is just in Comic-Con for "The Penguins of Madagascar" and "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies." Though the "Star Trek Into Darkness" star had been strongly rumored for the role of Doctor Strange in Marvel's upcoming film (which will be directed by Scott Derrickson), The Wrap is reporting that Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to take the part. If it pans out (and assuming it's not just smoke and mirrors, which it could be), this would be a real coup for Marvel. Phoenix has more cachet than just about every other actor tapped for major roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, save for maybe Robert Downey Jr. Naturally it's all speculation now, but where there's smoke, there's surely fire and this news coming on the eve of Marvel's big Hall H presentation at Comic-Con signals that the breaking news »

Joaquin Phoenix Eyed For Doctor Strange

25 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed TheWrap’s scoop and added that Phoenix is now in active negotiations for the lead role, not simply considering an offer by Marvel. Chances seem good that he’ll take the role.

Original: When Marvel goes to Comic-Con for its panel tomorrow, there will undoubtedly be some absolutely jaw-dropping reveals – and we’re expecting that the actor who’ll be playing Stephen Strange in Marvel’s Doctor Strange may be announced there. However, we may have uncovered the lucky actor one day early.

According to TheWrap, The Master star Joaquin Phoenix, who recently appeared in James Gray’s acclaimed The Immigrant, is being eyed for the lead role in Doctor Strange, which Sinister helmer Scott Derrickson is directing for the studio from a script by Jon Spaihts, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming Phase Three.

Joaquin Phoenix Favored For "Doctor Strange"

25 July 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Joaquin Phoenix has reportedly had discussions and is currently in serious consideration if not outright talks for the role of Doctor Stephen Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming "Doctor Strange" film at Marvel Studios.

With Benedict Cumberbatch having revealed this week he had meetings for the role but couldn't do the role due to scheduling, talk has suddenly and quite heavily turned to Phoenix. In fact at least two trades claim actual negotiations are actively underway. Representatives for Marvel and Phoenix had no comment.

Tom Hardy, Jared Leto and Justin Theroux have also previously been mentioned as possibilities that ultimately didn't pan out. Whomever takes on the role will play the Marvel Comics hero - a former neurosurgeon who protects Earth from magical and mystical threats.

Phoenix had previously been courted for the role of Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" which ultimately didn't happen. »
