Marvel Offers Ant-Man Update, Confirms Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange, Ant-Man.

After the next wave of Marvel films (Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Captain America 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers 2) finishes making contact with planet Earth, Edgar Wright's Ant-Man might have a little more wiggle room. Studio president Kevin Feige tells MTV "it's certainly set in the Marvel Universe, but it's also through the lens of Edgar Wright — which is the only reason we're making the movie. ... It's very much an Ant-Man origin movie from the perspective of Edgar Wright and his co-writer Joe Cornish. It will of course be firmly planted in the [Marvel Comics universe], but a different corner than we've seen before." Feige also adds that Doctor Strange is "definitely" on deck. "He's a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he's totally different from anything else we have, just like Guardians of the Galaxy." Sounds like they'll be into the super obscure heroes within five or six years.
