Disney pages Doctor Strange

“Dr Strange” may be the first Marvel movie to be made under the Disney banner.

Deadline reported earlier this morning that “Conan” scribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer have been tapped to write the feature film version of the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko comic.

“Dr Strange” has been mooted for the cinema treatment for years now – at one stage with Arnold Schwarzenegger rumoured for the lead role.

The film, likely Schwarzenegger-less (Who never would’ve worked in the role anyway!), will tell of a former New York surgeon who learns to tap into his psychic powers.
