Kevin Feige News

By now, we've all heard that Marvel Studios plans on going in new and strange directions with their slates for Phases 3 and 4. While they've been criticized for being somewhat safe for the last few years, Kevin Feige and the folks at Marvel look like they want to switch things up. The first big indication of that was the dark, humor-free, INCEPTION-esque trailer for DOCTOR STRANGE. Now screenwriter C.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige gave Empire (via Comic Book Movie) a nice clue into some of the goings on in November’s Doctor Strange. Namely: a look at the Dark Dimension. “We see glimpses of something called the Dark Dimension,” Feige explained. “But if you were to open a Doctor Strange comic drawn by Steve Ditko, you would see the Dark Dimension is, in fact, very colorful in an extremely psychedelic way.

Tilda Swinton Reveals The Gender Of 'The Ancient One' In DOCTOR STRANGE In the comic books, The Ancient One is portrated as being an elderly Asian man, so what's up with casting the amazingly talented Tilda Swinton to play the character in Doctor Strange? Well, like The Mandarin before her, it seems as if Marvel wanted to move away from portraying the Sorcerer Supreme's mentor in such a stereotypical fashion. "We are always looking for ways to change," explains Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

When Robert Downey, Jr. sent film sites around the world into a frenzy last week by intimating -- and then backpedaling very quickly -- the idea that he might be in talks for Iron Man 4, we held off on writing up any of the action, mainly because it seemed like Marvel might have an actual announcement hiding up its sleeve.

Hey, remember when Joaquin Phoenix fooled a bunch of people into thinking he was going to retire from acting to pursue a career in rap? Ha, ha, ha! If he'd followed that up by telling everyone he wanted to star in a movie about the Marvel Comics hero Doctor Strange, it would have seemed like another piece of insane performance art, but here we are in 2014, and Joaquin Phoenix starring in Marvel's Doctor Strange movie appears to be all but a done deal.

Marvel's turned defying fan expectations into a multibillion-dollar industry, and at this point, any fanboys who seriously believe the studio cares about petitions and message boards is delusional. But just because Marvel's brain trust is confident enough to ignore or override comics lovers' wishes, that doesn't mean they aren't aware of them -- and in a couple of notable cases, they may even acquiesce at some point.
