Science Expert Who Worked On THOR Reveals Progress For DOCTOR STRANGE Movie

Naming Marvel Studios' long-in production Doctor Strange movie as the next film he'll lend his science expertise to, following THOR, which he also discusses, here's what Sean Carroll says!



The last we heard regarding the big-screen adaptation of Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, was that it would come "Sooner Rather Than Later," according producer Kevin Feige. And now, thanks to the keen eyes of SHH forum user BoredGuy, via Io9, a theoretical physicist, Sean Carroll, who worked with Marvel Studios on last summer's Thor has revealed further progress on the long-productive project. Check out an excerpt below.

Now that Carroll's done with Thor, he's moved on to Doctor Strange, about a surgeon who becomes earth's Sorcerer Supreme. Carroll's job is to apply limits to Strange's powers. "You need constraints to provide tension," he says. A world where anything can happen makes for a very boring movie. It's when science imposes boundaries on what a superhero can do that the real drama begins.


Although this isn't much, considering we learned August last year that the screenwriters attached to Strange, Thomas Donnelly & Joshua Oppenheimer, had turned in their script, however, this does showcase further progress. Around that same time, it was also revealed that Marvel drafted a shortlist of directors to approach on the title, forwarding the current script to each to try and sign someone up to 'oversee continued development'.

And let's not forget that Walt Disney Studios has two undisclosed Marvel Studios flicks slated for 2014, one April 4th & the other May 16th. So, with today's news, do you think the Sorcerer Supreme will fill one of those spots?

Anyhow, be sure to head over to Io9, where Carroll drops interesting deets reflecting on his work from Thor.
