doctorstrange210x300Marvel Studios have hired a writing team for a big screen adaptation of Doctor Strange, and would likely be the first Marvel movie made under Disney’s control.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Conan The Barbarian writers Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer have been hired to pen the script which could mean that the script for Conan is an impressive one.

Doctor Strange was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and first appeared in Strange Tales in 1963. The story of the good doctor begins when he’s Stephen Strange, a world-renowned but selfish neurosurgeon whose hands are damaged in a car accident.

After losing the ability to perform surgery, Stephen searches the world for a cure and winds up learning the mystic arts in the Himalayas.

A movie version of Doctor Strange has been in development hell for a long time until Marvel bought back the rights and are now pushing forward with the project.
