Marvel’s Doctor Strange Conjures Up a November 2016 Release Date

Come November 2016, the good Doctor is in!

At a special presentation at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced Marvel‘s “Doctor Strange” would hit theaters November 4, 2016, marking the hero’s big screen debut.

Scott Derrickson will direct the film introducing the Master of the Mystic Arts to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“It takes a while to work on these movies before they’re ready to come to you in theaters,” said Feige. “Doctor Stephen Strange, brilliant neurosurgeon, bit of an arrogant fellow who gets in a car accident and ruins what he thinks are the tools of his trade: his hands.

“In the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the supernatural, that involves everything from quantum mechanics to string theory. The idea of this film is to open up a whole new corner of the cinematic universe. We want to enter, through Strange, the world of parallel dimensions.”

Stay tuned to for the latest on “Doctor Strange” and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it develops!


Our rumor new comes direct from Deadline, and they are reporting that Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) has beaten out all the competition for the role of Stephen Strange and that negotiations will begin shortly.

Yes. Negotiate. Give the man the moneys.

We’ll be sure and keep you posted on the latest for Doctor Strange which is slated to hit theaters November 4, 2016.
