Ant-Man and Dr. Strange part of Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 3

According to Kevin Feige seaking to MTV...

"'Ant-Man' is definitely part of Phase Three," Marvel's Kevin Feige told MTV News during our recent interview. "Like 'Iron Man 3,' it's certainly set in the Marvel Universe, but it's also through the lens of Edgar Wright — which is the only reason we're making the movie."

"I've known Edgar since our first lunch together at Comic-Con in 2004," he continued. "He asked me what Marvel was doing with 'Ant-Man' — we weren't even a studio then; what a difference eight years makes! It's very much an 'Ant-Man' origin movie from the perspective of Edgar Wright and his co-writer Joe Cornish. It will of course be firmly planted in the MCU, but a different corner than we've seen before."
"Beyond that… 'Ant-Man' is the only one officially announced, but you probably don't have to look too far to guess at the next list of characters we're toying with and beginning to develop."

Could the oft-rumored "Doctor Strange" be a part of those plans?

"'Doctor Strange,' which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of them," he confirmed. "He's a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he's totally different from anything else we have, just like 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' He's totally different from anything we've done before, as is 'Ant-Man,' which keeps us excited."

I like that Edgar Wright wants to make Ant-Man of his own volition. It's no guarantee but I feel that a project that is a labor of love has a better chance to be of worth. It's cool that Marvel wants to be a part of that.

I have no interest whatsoever in Dr Strange... I'm only excited about Ant Man because of Edgar Wright. Where's Mrs Marvel or Luke Cage I ask?

^ Really? I think, if done right (and Marvel obviously seems to know what theyn are doing with their charaters) a Dr. Strange movie would rock!

Re: Ant-Man and Dr. Strange part of Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 3

Praise the Eternal Vishanti! I've been waiting impatiently for them to get around to doing a Dr. Strange movie. I just hope that, along with the classic Lee/Ditko stuff, they also draw on the Engelhart/Brunner/Colan run in the seventies, which is still my favorite take on the character.

So, Benedict Cumberbatch as Strange? And who do we want as Clea?

I'm actually more excited about this than all the big STAR WARS chatter!

Re: Ant-Man and Dr. Strange part of Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 3

But if Ant-Man is set for 2014, doesn't that make it before Avengers 2, and therefore part of Phase-2? I'm assuming each they intend each "phase" to be punctuated by an Avengers movie.

Isn't it set for the next movie after Avengers 2 or something like that? Assuming Avengers is a summer movie, you still have half a year left in 2014.

Marvel's 2014 slate consists of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4 and Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1. The Avengers 2 is scheduled for May 1, 2015, and Ant-Man is scheduled for November 6, 2015.

OK, that makes sense too. I didn't realize Avengers 2 was 2015. So what's 2013, just Iron Man 3? Thor 2?

It will be interesting to see how these slightly lesser known properties fair at the box office.

Iron Man was lesser known once upon a time. When they started advertising the first movie, I knew several people who had never hears of the character and nobody who had read the comics.

Don't overestimate how known comic books are in the general culture. People know Superman, Spider-Man, Batman and Wonder Woman, and after that it gets fuzzy. Maybe The Hulk too since he had a TV series once. To normal people, The Avengers was a lesser known property.

Yeah, that's why I said "slightly lesser known".
