Doctor Strange Gets Its Director

Rumors have persisted for some time that Marvel‘s Doctor Strange would be coming to the big screen. Then we got the name drop of the character in this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Over the past day or so, all of that kicked into high gear when various sites through “anonymous sources” reported that the Doctor Strange film had found its director in Scott Derrickson (and I question how something is exclusive when there’s no comment from the company).

Derrickson has been on a horror role as of late with The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, two films that did well on small budgets.

Unlike some sites, we don’t like to traffic in rumors, so waited for official word from one of the individuals involved. While Marvel hasn’t made an official announcement, Derrickson did of sorts in the Tweet below.
