Deadline has some interesting Marvel news to share before we head off into the weekend. First off, they are reporting that Ant-Man is considering two new directors for the project, Peyton Reed (Bring It On) and David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer). Like Deadline says, it seems like they are going down a list crossing people off as they turn down the project.
It does make me a little nervous about the film and how it’s going to turn out. If i hear that Michael Bay is in the running, I’m heading for the hills.
Scott Derrickson tweeted that he is going to direct the Doctor Strange movie, so now… it’s on to casting. It looks like Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch are on the short list.
Doctor Strange was created in 1963 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. He’s a neurosurgeon who is also a supreme sorcerer who protects Earth against evil and and mystical threats.
There are more people in the mix but Marvel is really eyeing Hardy and Cumberbatch for the role.
I guess we shall see. Are you guys excited for Doctor Strange?
