“Doctor Strange” Movie Finds Director; Jared Leto To Star?

June 4, 20140 Comments

Marvel Studios may be having issues finding a new director for Ant-Man, but that doesn’t mean the train has slowed down for Phase Three.

Variety reports that Scott Derrickson is in negotiations to helm Doctor Strange for Marvel. His credits include Hellraiser: Inferno, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and Sinister.

THR suggests that Marvel is still seeking a screenwriter, although the writers of Kung Fu Panda, Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger, are still being considered.

Meanwhile, Badass Digest reports that Marvel is interested in Jared Leto playing Stephen Strange. Leto recently won an Academy Award for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. Previously rumored actors include Johnny Depp and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The article also speculates that the entirety of Phase Three will be revealed at the San Diego Comic-Con this year and to “expect Derrickson – and whoever is playing Strange – to take that [Hall H] stage.” 

If true, do you think Leto can pull it off?
