Doctor Strange to be Directed by Sinister’s Scott Derrickson

Doctor Strange is the one Marvel movie I’ve been really excited about seeing brought to life! He’s one of my favorite characters in the Marvel universe. Marvel Studios has hired Sinister director Scott Derrickson to helm the project. It was rumored back in March that the director was in the running.

THR reports that the director has officially signed onto the project. As much as I would have loved to see Guillermo del Toro take on the film, I’m happy that Derrickson landed the gig. He has also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose and The Day the Earth Stood Still. I really liked what he did with Sinister though, of course horror flicks are kind of my thing. He most recently directed the upcoming psychological thriller with Eric Bana, Deliver Us From Evil.

Marvel is also looking at hiring Kung-Fu Panda scribes Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger to write the film. Their names have been attached to the project for a couple months now. I can’t wait to see how this production comes together, and who they end up casting as the main character.

And there is already a fan video of top ten actors who would play Doctor Strange! Check it out and let us know who you think should play him!
