According to Deadline, Marvel Studios is in talks with Jon Spaihts to write the script for Doctor Strange. If that name is familiar, it could be because he's been attached to write Universal's reboot of The Mummy, as well as the first draft of Sir Ridley Scott's Prometheus. The plan is to get a script and put this movie in production as soon as possible, so don't be surprised if it's announced as Marvel's other 2016 movie. Oh, and that shortlist of actors including Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch? They've been joined by Academy Award winning actor Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club). The first draft of the Doctor Strange script was penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. Would you guys like to see Leto get the part? Sound off below!

Remember guys, Spaights wrote the promising script of Prometheus, not the rewritten one that Lindelof shitted all over.

i just don't get it. who wants to see ant-man and dr. strange? i have to hand it to them though, they made bank with b-list characters no one really knew about. i guess that's why, since they could change things and the mass audience wouldn't know.
