Kevin Feige Says Doctor Strange Is “Next Up” for Marvel to Explore

As Marvel kicks off Phase Two with a bang this weekend with the release of director Shane Black’s excellent Iron Man 3, the studio is now looking ahead to the end of Phase Two and beyond.

Ant-man is the top pick for a post avenger phase 2 film and thankfully it is happening. second pick will be either doctor strange or black panther and for sure one (or both) of those will have an adaptation. personally I would really like to see a doctor strange movie and I'm glad that they stated that it is one of the movies following the beginning of phase 3. I've watched the animated movie and it was good.
