The rumor that Doctor Strange would get the Marvel movie treatment is closer to reality, as the website Twitch reports that scriptwriters Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer have turned in their draft of the script to the House of Ideas. The next step will be finding a director.
Donnelly and Oppenheimer are the writing pair behind the new Conan movie and this past weekend’s Cowboys and Aliens flick – and depending on your P.O.V. you may not have high hopes for Doctor Strange.
One of the early rumors early on was that Doctor Strange and other lesser known Marvel character would be getting the mini-movie treatment, ala the Saturday morning serials, that would act as the lead into the feature Marvel presentation.
So today, we asking you, the Major Spoilerites, what would you prefer – A full on Sorcerer Supreme movie, or a series of smaller shorts that lead into a feature Marvel/Disney movie?

If you ever wanted to know what Doctor Strange’s first night in his Greenwich Village brownstone was like, Marvel has you covered with Doctor Strange: From the Marvel Vault 1, written by Roger Stern with art by Neil Vokes.
“Over the years, there have been a number of stories that we’ve commissioned but that were never completed for one reason or another,” said Marvel Vice President, Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “I and other editors up here have held onto the work that was finished, sometimes for decades, in the hope that eventually we’d be able to see these stories in print.”
“And now, with our office-move, these materials are coming to light once again. In addition to this Doctor Strange story, which was originally intended for the Marvel Universe series we published in the late ’90s, we’ve found four or five other tales which deserve to be completed and printed–so we’ll be doing just that in the months to come!”
The first issue of Doctor Strange: From the Marvel Vault arrives in February, and has a cover price of $2.99.

Or – “An Old Favorite Returns!”
An old favorite of MINE, at any rate…Â It is an undisputed fact that what we liked best as a kid will stick with us in our adulthood, one way or another.Â Witness Stephen and my recent discussions on the podcast of why 1979′s ‘The Black Hole’ is a more transformative movie than ‘Star Wars’ for me.Â Early in my comics buying life, I picked up the original run of Marvel’s Official Handbook series, and many of my comic book favorites were shaped by those volumes.Â My love of Nova, of the Mimic, of the 3-D Man, all stems from those books, as well as my soft spot for the new Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe…Â But can Gabriel Drumm live up to the standard set by his prececessor?
Doctor Strange has to fight to get regain the title of Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers are going to help him take it back from the Dark Avengers.Â Sounds like we’re headed to a smack down of magical proportions, and Marvel has sent us a sneak peek of the upcoming New Avengers #51.
