"This is the Marvel movie we're all ready to see now..." said director Scott Derrickson about his developing Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange" 3D multi-million dollar budgeted motion picture, paving the way for the next phase of the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe'.

Derrickson is no stranger to the 'occult', having previously directed "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" and "Sinister".

"I wanted it really bad," Derrickson said. "More than any other project that I've gone after, I felt compelled to do everything in my power to get on that project. Genuinely felt like I was the right guy to do it."

"I think people who know the comic world and the Marvel universe, they all feel the same way I do...the outpouring of excitement that people have shown is the thing I've been most pleasantly surprised."

Casting suggestions to play 'Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange', include Johnny Depp, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Jon Hamm, »
