Stan Lee confirms Doctor Strange movie is coming while Black Panther and the Inhumans are still being developed
As Disney is busy with its acquisition of Star Wars and Lucasfilm, their other studio is busy developing even more movies. Marvel Studios is in the process of working on Phase 2 of their cinematic universe and more.
Phase 2 is already a full slate with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World coming in 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014 and The Avengers 2 in 2015. Not to mention Ant-Man is looking to be the start of Phase 3 when it comes out after The Avengers 2, in fall of 2015.
But Marvel isn't stopping there and iconic superhero creator Stan Lee has confirmed that there's more coming from Marvel, in a recent interview.
"Oh they are all being made into movies! I can tell you there will definitely be a Dr. Strange movie! They are working on Antman, which requires really small cameras! Black Panther is being developed, one of my favorites…the Inhumans…All the hero’s will eventually be made into movies."
When and how Doctor Strange, Black Panther and the Inhumans will be integrated into Marvel cinematic universe remains to be seen but all the past rumors about Doctor Strange and Black Panther being made into solo movies seem to be confirmed, and is encouraging. However, Lee has spoke about Doctor Strange and Black Panther in the past so perhaps he was just speaking casually about them and misspoke regarding these properties.
Until Marvel confirms anything, it's really just one guy talking since Lee isn't even really a part of the movie process with the exception of meeting with a director or actor here and there. Whichever way you look at this information, it sounds like Marvel is hard at work and already looking past Phase 2 and at Phase 3. Bring it on!
