As Marvel move into their Phase 3 line up they’re getting more ambitious, with several lesser-known characters getting their own films (including Doctor Strange, Black Panther and Captain Marvel). The former, which will be released next year, will definitely include an origin story for the character.

Marvel president Kevin Feige is quoted as saying the following on Strange’s origin story:

“For some reason people sometimes talked about how we’re not doing an origin story, we’re bored of origin stories. I think people are bored of origin stories they’ve seen before or origin stories that are overly familiar. Doctor Strange has one of the best, most classic, most unique origin stories of any hero we have, so why wouldn’t we do that? That was sort of always the plan. How you tell that origin, perhaps there are ways to twist it or play with that, but for the most part, it’s a gift when the comics have something with such clarity of story and of character. That doesn’t always happen in the comics, and when it does, you use it.”

Doctor Strange is scheduled for release on November 4th, 2016.

Thoughts on this news? Are you looking forward to seeing Doctor Strange’s origin story on the big screen?
