Kevin Feige Talks DOCTOR STRANGE Teaming Up With THE AVENGERS; Casting Announcement In Near Future

Kevin Feige has been addressing many things over the past couple days regarding rumors about the MCU. Now he talks about Doctor Strange possibly teaming up with The Avengers on the big screen and says that we will be getting a casting announcement very soon! Hit the jump to check it out!

     Recently IGN caught up with Kevin Feige at an advance screening for Guardians of the Galaxy and they took the time to to ask him about Doctor Strange teaming up with the Avengers and gave us an update on casting!

     "It does make sense [to have standalone franchises], but I don't think it makes sense for this character, who has clearly woven in and out of that stuff [The Avengers] in the comics,"  Feige said "We have a template. There's a template for everything we do, which are the comics. Strange goes back and forth. Guardians less so, actually, until recently. But if there's a character like that who clearly interweaves over the course of many stories, I find no reason to go, 'We're not going to do that in the movies. We're going to keep him in his own movies.' So there's always the potential for it [Strange to join The Avengers]"

IGN then went on to ask if we will be getting a casting annoucement regarding Doctor Strange. Feige said while it may not be as quick as next Saturday "it'll be relatively quickly." 

     Well casting for the film could still possibly be revealed this Saturday at Comic-Con, if not it's they're gonna reveal it quick like he said! Could that mean before or after the event? What do you think? Would you want to see the 'Sorcerer Supreme' team up with the Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the future? Sound off below!

i wouldn't mind if he was in an avengers movie. i wouldn't like him in the team, tho
NovaCorpsFan - 7/21/2014, 12:55 PM
Have him pop up every now and then. I'd prefer if he were more of a pop up guy than a member of the team or anything.

There has been some great news today! Also, nice find!
Mrcool210 - 7/21/2014, 12:58 PM
Well it does suck that doctor strange won't be in the defenders hopefully we can still get him and hulk interacting since they are both defenders character. *Sigh* too bad i won't get the defenders story i want to see. Screw planet hulk. Give Me Hulk: Prince of the Whales.

PsychoManiacJacky - 7/21/2014, 1:00 PM
Mark Wahlberg is playing Dr.Strange
NightWatcher - 7/21/2014, 1:01 PM
You should update your article with some of the things Josh just put in his.
WorstUserNameEver - 7/21/2014, 1:01 PM
A Defenders movie would be so cool.
Cles - 7/21/2014, 1:02 PM
MrCool, man, that's embarrassing. The early 80's... so glad they're gone.
Gusto - 7/21/2014, 1:02 PM
Adam Sandler!
DannyRand1225 - 7/21/2014, 1:02 PM
yeah,i want a doctor strange casting announcement at comic con(while i like Cumberbatch,i hope its not him cause it is just too obvious and it willbe dissapointing to me tbh)
MrBlackJack - 7/21/2014, 1:02 PM
Possible SDCC announcement?

When you go on an upvote spree
Jollem - 7/21/2014, 1:02 PM
i'd be down for whale hulk
Cles - 7/21/2014, 1:04 PM
I like the idea of him floating through the different films. I liked him in New Avengers, but it always felt a little forced. Like they were trying to find reasons for him to be there.
Pheezmatic - 7/21/2014, 1:08 PM
Yep...Adam Sandler

Good choice Gus!
Name - 7/21/2014, 1:09 PM
Yeah ive never been a huge Dr Strange fan but from what i gather a hero comes across something supernatural and goes to Strange for help. Makes sense to have him on the fringes doing his astral plane thing.
JoJo1982 - 7/21/2014, 1:09 PM


It's funny cause it's true
GliderMan - 7/21/2014, 1:14 PM

Avengers 3 roster:
Iron Man
Captain America
Scarlet Witch
The Vision
The Wasp
Probably The Falcon
Probably The Hulk

Now THIS [frick]. C'mon, let the Dr. Strange franchise be independent! [frick].
Pheezmatic - 7/21/2014, 1:16 PM
and Melissa McCarthy for Ms. Marvel...

Gusto - 7/21/2014, 1:21 PM Hollywood!
Tell 'em we're comin'!
DannyRand1225 - 7/21/2014, 1:22 PM
Pleaseeeeee let Doctor Strange be Pedro Pascal(it is wishful thinking at best though)
KingOnslaught - 7/21/2014, 1:24 PM
Just announce it already DAMN!!!
DrKinsolving - 7/21/2014, 1:36 PM

Strange could be in Avengers 4....


Chris Farley, it's too soon

Bl00dwerK - 7/21/2014, 1:52 PM
Bring on Strange...
RamonSuarez - 7/21/2014, 1:54 PM
Derikson will get his Sinister lead actor.

Ethan Hawke will be Strange.
ckal - 7/21/2014, 1:55 PM

UltimateCookie - 7/21/2014, 1:56 PM
Give Strange 2 movies before putting him in the Avengers.
Inhuman - 7/21/2014, 2:03 PM

Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, War Machine, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Giant Man, Wasp vs Thanos and his army
WeddingTux - 7/21/2014, 2:04 PM
Adrian Brody. Calling it. Called it a year ago.
Batmanoncrack - 7/21/2014, 2:06 PM
Orlando bloom for doc strange, I think he could seriously pull it off as the sorcerer supreme
DrKinsolving - 7/21/2014, 2:10 PM
Is Avengers 3 supposed to be the Infinity Gauntlet?

It think it would be cool to bring in Doctor Strange for that story
Destined - 7/21/2014, 2:21 PM
Luke Evans or gtfo.
Jobu - 7/21/2014, 2:52 PM
Brody would be cool
GliderMan - 7/21/2014, 3:05 PM


Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, War Machine, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Giant Man, Wasp vs Thanos and his army

No no no no NO NO NO!!!! That is too many damn heroes. Guarantee half of em wouldn't get hardly any character development. The Avengers' roster is supposed to rotate, not expand!
Ramiel - 7/21/2014, 3:33 PM
Wasn't it leaked that Cumberbatch is up for the role?
TheAstoundingMan - 7/21/2014, 3:46 PM
It will be interesting to see how they approach Strange, especially considering Scarlet Witch has effectively beaten him to the punch.

Disclaimer: yes, I know Wanda is a mutant, but that isn't the case here. It will be interesting to see how they set them apart (if they do at all).
JoJo1982 - 7/21/2014, 4:00 PM
Could be Eric Bana for Dr Strange
xfan320 - 7/21/2014, 4:10 PM
AlexanderLykins - 7/21/2014, 4:22 PM
He'll join The Avengers in Avengers 3 or in an Infinity Gauntlet movie to help fight Thanos. Then I doubt we see him in another Avengers movie.
