DOCTOR STRANGE (2016) ... MARVEL'S Next Superhero To Hit The Big Screen!! Who Will It Be?

Thus far nothing substantial has been officially reported by either Marvel or Disney but Pinewood Studios in The U.K. have said that Doctor Strange will be shooting at their facilities, and that the contract is in the final stages between the studios.
Doctor Strange the story of a neurosurgeon who becomes Earth-protector Sorcerer Supreme following a terrible accident, Doctor Strange first appeared in the Marvel Universe more than 50 years ago but has yet to make it to the big screen, despite several attempts. The movie is to be directed by Scott Derrickson from a script by Jon Spaihts.  Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to star in the movie currently.

Doctor Stephen Strange is a brilliant but egotistical neurosurgeon who only cares about wealth from his career. However, a car accident damages his hands, shattering the bones. The damage effectively ends his ability to conduct surgery, since his hands now tremble uncontrollably. Too proud to take on a teaching job, Strange desperately begins to search for a way to restore his hands, consulting various doctors, homeopathic treatments and traveling around the world to remote regions for exotic cures, all to no avail.

He exhausts his funds and is reduced to homelessness and is forced to perform "back alley" medical procedures for cash. Depressed and still searching, Strange locates a hermit called the Ancient One (who is actually the Earth's Sorcerer Supreme) in the Himalayas. The Ancient One refuses to help Strange because of his selfishness, but senses a good side that he attempts to bring to the surface. He fails, but Strange's goodness appears when he discovers the Ancient One's disciple, Baron Mordo, attempting to kill the old man. After Strange selflessly thwarts Mordo, (who becomes Strange's most enduring antagonist), the Ancient One teaches him the mystic arts.

As the Ancient One's disciple, Strange encounters the entity Nightmare, and miscellaneous other mystical foes before meeting Dormammu, a warlord from an alternate dimension called the "Dark Dimension". Strange is aided by a nameless girl, later called Clea, who is eventually revealed to be Dormammu's niece. When Strange helps a weakened Dormammu drive off the rampaging Mindless Ones and return them to their prison, he is allowed to leave unchallenged.

Strange's residence, the Sanctum Sanctorum, has been a part of the character's mythos since his introduction. Strange's personal servant, Wong, guards the residence in Strange's absence.

Strange draws his powers from various mystical entities, such as the Vishanti (Hoggoth, Oshtur, and Agamotto), the Octessence (Balthakk, Cyttorak, Farallah, Ikonn, Krakkan, Raggadorr, Valtorr, and Watoomb), and miscellaneous entities such as the Faltine, the Seraphim, and Balthakk. These entities lend their power to a particular effect, such as the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, the Winds of Watoomb, the Images of Ikkon, the Flames of the Faltine, the Shield of the Seraphim, and the Bolts of Balthakk.

As a practicing sorcerer, Strange wields various artifacts, such as the Cloak of Levitation which enables him to fly, the Eye of Agamotto whose light is used to negate evil magic, the Book of the Vishanti which contains knowledge of white magic, and the Orb of Agamotto which is used as a crystal ball.

Doctor Strange has been described as "the mightiest magician in the cosmos", and as "more powerful by far than any of your fellow humanoids" by Eternity, the sentience of the Marvel Universe. He has held the title of Sorcerer Supreme from 1973, (with the death of the Ancient One), to the present, except during an interruption from 1992 to 1995. He relinquished the title once again in 2009, but reclaimed it in 2012 when he proved himself willing to protect the world even without the title.

In addition to his magical abilities, Strange is also a skilled neurosurgeon, although he can no longer practice due to minor nerve damage to his hands rendering him unable to perform the finer details of such operations. He is trained in several martial arts disciplines,
