Originality isn't one of their strong suits...
Indie Wire is reporting that Marvel just finished negotiations with the UK's Pinewood-Shepperton studios to begin filming Doctor Strange around May 2015. If the Sorcerer Supreme's shooting schedule goes ahead, we're most likely looking at a release in 2016, and since Marvel already has July 8th, 2016 booked, we don't have to speculate very hard.
Keep in mind there's been no confirmation on this release date, but if it's correct, it more than likely means an actor has been chosen to play the titular character. Has Joaquin Phoenix finally agreed? Or has another taken up the mantle? I've heard rumors around Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston, but since he's taking over Ben-Hur, they're probably wrong.
Captain America's Greatest Generation heartthrob, Peggy Carter, is getting her own series, set in the 1940's. In the first image from the set, actress Hayley Atwell is joined by Neal McDonough and Kenneth Choi, who're reprising their roles from Captain America: The First Avenger, as Howling Commandos, Dum Dum Dugan and Jim Morita.
I wonder if we'll see more of Cap's old crew in the new series.
At a Marvel panel at the Fan Expo Canada, a fan asked M. Lee, when we could expect a Black Widow solo film. His answer confirmed something entirely different:
We haven't made a Black Widow movie but she's been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about.We already know that Ant-Man is currently filming, and Doctor Strange is still working on finding its cast, but Black Panther is entirely new. Kevin Fiege told us to expect it in the future, but this quote from Stan Lee suggests we'll see it soon. What do you think?
