It looks like we’re one step closer to a live-action film adaption of Marvel’s “Doctor Strange”!
According to SuperHeroHype, director Scott Derrickson will helm the movie, and “strange” subject matter is nothing new to him: He directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister, and the soon-to-be-released Deliver Us From Evil.
Derrickson confirmed the news himself on Twitter earlier today:

No release date for Doctor Strange has been announced, however, Marvel has two unnamed placeholders already set on their calendar: July 2016 and May 2017.
