UPDATE: Is This An Early Synopsis For The DR STRANGE Movie?

We know the movie is moving forward, we know the screenwriters have handed in a draft, but do we now have a brief story synopsis? Maybe. Have a read and see what you make of it..

Since we ran this Dr Strange article detailing a Scientist's involvement in the proposed movie version from Marvel Studios, many sites have been going with a "Is there a Dr Strange movie coming" approach. The thing is, we know there is. We reported as much months ago and aside from that screenwriters Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Donnelly have turned in their script. But JoBlo have an interesting addition to their report, in the form of a story synopsis. Where it came from I couldn't tell you, nor can I conform it's legitimacy. But here it is..

Doctor Strange centres around a New York surgeon, who stops running his practice after suffering injuries in a car crash. He then becomes a drifter and heads to the Himalayas, where he meets a healer and discovers that he has a great psychic power to fight against evil. Doctor Strange boasts powers that includes telepathy, teleportation, energy and astral projection.

Not exactly a stretch for anyone who wanted to make up a synopsis, but they are running it pretty much as if it's the real deal so who knows. Could there be any type of story outline in such an early stage of pre-production? Actually yes. We know the script is finished, it's not outside the realm of possibility that even though no director has been signed (that we know of) something like this could have leaked. Take it with a pinch of the ever handy salt for now but we will update as soon as we know any more.

Update: It appears this did not originate from Joblo as I first thought, but another far less..reliable site! No need to go into the details but let's just say I wouldn't pay much attention to the synopsis. Even though we can't be CERTAIN it's false, it more than likely is.
