Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE Sets Release Date; Will Shoot In The UK Next Year

Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE Sets Release Date; Will Shoot In The UK Next Year

As most of us expected, Doctor Strange has taken the July 8, 2016 release date that was previously announced by Marvel a while ago. Plus, like Ant-Man, it seems the production will move to Pinewood-Shepperton for a May 2015 shoot.


Things are finally starting to move along for Marvel's Doctor Strange. We already knew the movie would be directed by Scott Derrickson with a script by Jon Spaihts (earlier drafts provided by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer), and that it's likely Christopher Young will handle the score. As far as who'll be playing the Sorcerer Supreme goes, Joaquin Phoenix is said to be in final talks for the role but nothing has been confirmed yet. Well, maybe now that announcement is imminent as the studio has reportedly slotted Doctor Strange into the July 8, 2016 release date (no big surprise there) they'd previously freed up for one of their movies. Screen Daily also report that production is set to head to the UK's Pinewood-Shepperton this fall, with filming scheduled for May 2015. With this out of the magic bag, some official casting news shouldn't be too far away so keep an eye on CBM for updates.
