Remember when Marvel’s ‘Phase 2’ slate of films were announced? They consisted of: “Ant-Man,” “Thor 2: The Dark World,” “Iron Man 3,” Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” and it goes without saying, Avengers 2.
Notice who’s not on the list: Dr. Strange, which is odd considering that Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, expressed an interest in the character.
So, where is he? According to Screenrant, the good doctor will be playing a big role in the upcoming Thor sequel, which makes a lot of sense when you think about it because the characters in ‘Thor’ deal with a science so advanced that it looks for all intents and purposes like magic.
Which is not only why it’s a great opportunity to introduce Dr. Strange, but it offers a way to introduce his magics in a way that grounds it in a consistent Marvel reality.
Keep in mind that everything in the article is speculation, though it’s all very logical (from the perspective that I really, really want it to be true).
