Doctor Strange is being pitched

DrStrange.jpgStephen Strange was a brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon whose career was cut short when a car accident resulted in nerve damage to his hands.Seeking the counsel of a Tibetan sorcerer, Strange learned one of the sorcerer's pupils was plotting to kill his mentor. Witnessing such power and discovering this murderous intent shocked Strange into a realization of evil's true nature and the need to combat its forces. The sorcerer fully aware saw his potential for great goodness and power, and adopted him as his disciple. When Strange returned to New York, though the world at large believes he is no more than an eccentric occult authority, Dr. Strange has returned as the mantle of Earth's Sorcerer Supreme.

Sounds decent enough. Marvel Studios are pitching a live action film adaptation for Doctor Strange by the sounds of it. The age of Marvel comic-book films is still going strong it would seem. With Marvel's X-Men spinoffs Magneto and Wolverine in the works. A rehash of The Incredible Hulk. The Punisher 2, Spider-Man 4, Iron Man & now this.

From IESB through Comic Book Movie we have the scoop:

"Marvel has started taking the property around town and pitching it to potential directors. While we can't confirm if a script has been completed or even commissioned, it's rumored to be written by an unnamed writer."

Written by Ramchandra, edited by Louise

Oooh. Sounds ominous. Well, not that I don't enjoy comic book films, but how many comics can they keep pulling out of their cupboard to adapt? Any they haven't done yet that you'd like to see?
