The Doctor Strange release date has finally been revealed.  Among Marvel’s Phase Three films, we know that Ant-Man is set for July 17, 2015, Captain America 3 will be released on May 6, 2016, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will open on July 28, 2017.  But in between Captain America 3 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Marvel has two more dates on their schedule: July 8, 2016 and May 5, 2017.  It has now been confirmed that Doctor Strange will be released on July 8, 2016, which isn’t too surprising considering a director, Scott Derrickson, is already on board and a “2016″ date has been rumored for some time.

dr-strangeAccording to Screen Daily, Marvel is in “advanced negotiations” with the U.K.’s Pinewood-Shepperton Studio to shoot the movie in late 2014/early 2015.  I would be surprised if this deal didn’t come together since Marvel shot at Shepperton for Avengers: Age of UltronGuardians of the Galaxy, and Thor: The Dark World, to name a few.  Pinewood also has a positive relationship with Marvel’s parent company Disney, and is currently playing host to Star Wars: Episode VII and Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.

For those who need a brief refresher on Doctor Strange, he’s a “former neurosurgeon who serves as the Sorcerer Supreme – the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats.”
