Marvel draws up director shortlist for Doctor Strange

Who will be Director Strange?
 
Marvel Studios’ dominance as the biggest player in big-budget comic book adaptations continues apace, as wheels appear to be heavily in motion for a Doctor Strange movie.

According to sources, the Disney-owned studio has a four-man wishlist to helm a film based on the offbeat sorcerer character.

The four directors on the list are Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies, 50/50) and Dean Israelite (the upcoming Welcome To Yesterday).

Last month, Johnny Depp was linked to play the lead character, although some cold water has since been poured on that story.

There’s been no official announcements from Marvel on the matter, so we’ll keep our eyes and ears truly peeled until there is.
