Looks like MCU’s Phase Four is on track.

Word’s going down that a Marvel Phase 4 flick’s going to start filming in the UK next year.  If I had to guess, from the three possibilities mentioned (Doctor Strange 2, Black Widow, or The Eternals*), I’d say that it’s going to be the Doctor Strange sequel… what’s that?  There was That Thing That Happened?

RIP, Steve Ditko.

Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Squirrel Girl. Steve Ditko was an extremely private person, and it is unclear if he had any family or loved ones.  But I will be a lucky man if I ever create something half as iconic as Spider-Man. That character is one of the images that they will remember from our era.  There are worse legacies to have; in fact, there aren’t that many that are better.

My ‘Doctor Strange’ review.

Short version: Doctor Strange is good, go see it in 3D because it’s one of those films where 3D is an advantage.

So, Friday: The Magnificent Seven, or Doctor Strange?

…actually, never mind: The Magnificent Seven ain’t playing anymore anywhere near me.  Guess it didn’t make enough of a splash.  Ach, well, that’s why there are DVD players.

Let’s start over.  So, Friday: Doctor Strange!  I hear that it’s a hoot.

 

[UPDATE: Hmm. I need to take a look at my posting style. It’s gotten a bit too sparse in the last few months.]

The ‘Doctor Strange’ teaser trailer.

Because Marvel will not be constrained by your puny limitations, mortals! You will have a Doctor Strange movie, and it will make hundreds of millions of dollars, and it won’t matter that he’s not a top-shelf Marvel hero! None of them ever are! It doesn’t matter! The X-Men and FF franchises are trying to figure out right now how to emulate Spider-man’s example and get themselves crammed back into the MCU!

Plus, it has Benedict Cumberbatch in it.
