Doctor Strange Will Feature An Origin Story



A while back it was rumored the Doctor Strange movie would not feature an origin story with it also put out there that Marvel was not going to do any more origin stories for their movies.

Well, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige shoots down the rumor citing Doctor Strange's origin is pretty cool.

"For some reason people sometimes talked about how we're not doing an origin story, we're bored of origin stories," Feige told IGN. "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."

Rachel McAdams also has an unknown role in Doctor Strange, which Feige touches upon.

"She plays a very, very big part in the movie and represents a certain point of view of the worlds that we experience in that movie, but Doctor Strange, without a doubt, is the character we follow through the movie."

Doctor Strange has a November 4, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson also starring Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One (Feige confirmes the Ancient One is a female).
