As Marvel enters Phase 3 of its cinematic universe, the superhero juggernaut will be introducing a lot of new characters to its roster. In a na interview with IGN, Marvel head Kevin Feige had something to say about how they're handling Doctor Strange,

For some reason people sometimes talked about how we're not doing an origin story, we're bored of origin stories. I think people are bored of origin stories they've seen before or origin stories that are overly familiar... Doctor Strange has one of the best, most classic, most unique origin stories of any hero we have, so why wouldn't we do that? That was sort of always the plan. How you tell that origin, perhaps there are ways to twist it or play with that, but for the most part, it's a gift when the comics have something with such clarity of story and of character. That doesn't always happen in the comics, and when it does, you use it.

Marvel's new take on the Spider-Man seems to highlight this point. Rumors are suggesting that Peter Parker will be a year into his web slinging when he's introduced in Captain America: Civil War next year. Audiences have already watched Uncle Ben's death twice since 2002, and frankly no one wnats to hear "with great power, comes great responsibility" ever again.

Maybe the origin story isn't dead. Maybe it's just time to stop showing Spider-Man and Batman's.

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.

Seeing the good doctor working with a team will be an event indeed. Although he's worked with others in the past it will be interesting to see how he fits in with the others in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
