“Prometheus” co-scribe in talks to pen Marvel's “Doctor Strange”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Jon Spaihts is in talks to write Marvel's upcoming film Doctor Strange, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Scott Derrickson is attached to direct the project, which centers on the character who made his first appearance in the Marvel Universe in 1963. He's a former neurosurgeon who serves as the Sorcerer Supreme — the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. The character was first created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in the pages of Strange Tales No. 110.

Spaihts tweeted about the news Wednesday, June 18: “Doctor Strange was always my favorite Marvel hero. It's a good day.”

Spaihts is well-versed in writing sci-fi films. He wrote the sci-fi romance Passengers, which was on the 2007 Black List, and co-wrote the 2012 Ridley Scott film Prometheus with Damon Lindelof. He's also working on The Mummy reboot for Universal.
