Marissa Tanchareon said this about the upcoming Lorelei appearance on AoS...

"She has the power of sorcery, so that's interesting to see how our team deals with that......Maybe a few are enamored with her."

But being an Asgardian, wouldn't her sorcery actually be "science"?
I don't think that Asgardian magic itself has been ruled out, just the idea that they are gods has been ruled out.

I think Dr.Strange is among a few characters that could be deemed "strongest contenders" but I think he wins out on the types of various avenues a Strange film could go down.
The MCU doesn't have a mystic/magician/mage that can have stories based in horror, cosmic, magical and super heroes. The versatility is there.

Where the other strong contenders, Black Panther, Inhumans or Ms.Marvel don't offer as many variables.
Does magic exist in the MCU? The Asgardians are aliens and their magic is just advanced technology. Dr. Strange would be an odd addition without some sort of change in his origins.
That's the question a Dr.Strange movie will answer according to Feige. While the Asgardians might have alluded that their magic&science are one in the same based on perspective that doesn't mean that magic itself doesn't exist in the MCU. We just haven't had a portal character into that realm yet.

I don't think anything in the Thor universe is supposed to be magic, just something we don't understand. Even if it's biological instead of technological. Although I'm not sure it is if Loki and his adoptive mother both have the same ability.

In Thor, Thor said that on Asgard science and magic "were one and the same".

I'd always assumed Loki's abilities were magic, or at least what we would call magic here on Earth.

This statement is still pretty open.

I am wondering how magic appears in the Ultimate comics since the MCU is more closely related to those than the 616 verse?

Sure, but that doesn't mean they aren't technological from an Asgardian perspective. The difference is whether Dr Strange will have sci-fi trappings or just say it's actually magic.

Well, there is a certain science in Marvel magic. Hank Pym was able to figure out the basics of the science involved in magic in Dan Slott's Mighty Avengers run. In fact, Chthon the Elder god said something along the lines of "Clever man, shame he doesn't speak the language."

I find that to be a idiotic idea.. Is that the same storyline that gave us the concept of a Scientist Supreme?

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Just saw this on Superhero Hype
http://www.superherohype.com/news/29...-soon#/slide/1

It currently says the trailer should be "debuting soon," not sure what that means though. Could be later today, this week, this month, anything really...

Need for Speed is the next Disney release. It's being released on the 14th March. If they want to attach the trailer to a Disney film that's probably the one.

It'd be interesting if it proves true that the movie and comics have such synergy going. Usually the movies are behind whatever is going on in the comic world.
"Inspired by the Comic" so I guess they have room to be creative

I know I've read that Ronan....a blue alien dude with a Thor-ish hammer is going to be working as an assassin for the evil Thanos and is possibly a blood relation to him.
Ronan in the comics does not work for Thanos but instead is part of a race of people called "Kree"
Thanos in the comic didn't really have any henchmen and his sole purpose of being evil was because he wanted to hump Mistress Death and impress her by wiping out so many people/aliens. Not sure if having "Death" as a physical humanish entity would translate onto the big screen

Here was some of the other speculation/spoilers on the comic movie relation

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

It's not a big sceen movie, but we have gotten death as an onscreen character in the Discworld miniseries, and there is the Sandman movie in the works, and the comic features a female Death as a supporting (or major?) character. I don't see why it would be a problem, I'm pretty sure we've seen Death as a physical presence in other movies, I just can't think of any others at the moment.
