You are Marvel Studios, now owned by the Disney corporation. You've got your Spider-Men and your X-Men and your Daredevils and Ghost Riders and Fantastic Fours locked up at other studios. You've pumped out two Iron Men and a Hulk and you've got some Thors, Captain Americas and Avengers on the horizon. That will see you through to 2012 at least. But what happens next? Where do you go from there?

You go after the sorcerer supreme himself, the master mystic of the Marvel Universe, Dr. Strange. Deadline is reporting that Marvel has hired screenwriters Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to hammer out the script for the character's first film adventure, which will most likely be the first Marvel superhero movie to be released under the Disney banner. Donnelly and Oppenheimer's previous credits include the currently-filming Conan the Barbarian reboot, an adaptation of the video game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and a pass or two on Jon Favreau's Cowboys and Aliens. In other words, a whole lotta' nothing. Or at least a whole lot of "Who knows yet?"
