Marvel to make Doctor Strange film

Jan 28 2013, 6:13am CST | by

Marvel will adapt 'Doctor Strange' for the big screen.

The iconic studios have announced their plan to make a film based on the comic book magician and claim the project will be an integral part of Phase Three, the next stage of their cinematic superhero line-up.

Kevin Feige, Marvel's president of production, told MTV: ''Doctor

Strange, which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of

them. 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'.

''He's totally different from anything we've done before, as is

Ant-Man, which keeps us excited.''

Dr Stephen Strange, a character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in the 60s, is a neurosurgeon who loses control of his hands before being taught mystic arts in the Himalayas and transforming himself into 'the mightiest magician in the cosmos'.

Following smash hit 'The Avengers', Kevin confirmed Phase Three will change things up by showcasing lesser-known superheroes and 'Ant-Man' will definitely be in the mix, with Edgar Wright' behind the camera.

He explained: ''Ant-Man is definitely part of Phase Three. Like 'Iron

Man 3', 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.

''I've known Edgar since our first lunch together at Comic-Con in 2004.

He asked me what Marvel was doing with Ant-Man -- we weren't even a studio then; what a difference eight years makes!

''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 MCU, but a different corner than we've seen before.''

With Joaquin Phoenix in and out of final talks for the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, I thought it might be a great time to look back on another incarnation of this magical superhero story (found in the 'oh please, do not tell anyone we made these' vault at Marvel) to give you a little insight on how these movies worked back in the day. If you haven't caught this particular made-for-tv movie, you might just be able to find it shoved in the corner of ...

The Big Bang Theory - Is It Really All That Bad?

Sep 4 2014 11:21pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

There's a common theme within the nerd community when it comes to the show The Big Bang theory. Despite its success, it seems that many self-described geeks find it patronizing, if not outright offensive. Many a time I have heard long, impassioned, rants about how it is damaging to the image of the nerd, how it caters to the lowest common denominator, and how it should never be watched by anyone who considers themselves a "real geek" (a phrase that frustrates me in an ...
