Marvel seem to be taking over the movie World, with their high volume of comic book superhero movies released each year. Marvel are leaving everyone else in their wake and continue to bring us fantastic films. While the future of Iron Man has been in question, it seems that Doctor Strange will pick up the mantle for Phase Three.
A Doctor Strange movie is currently in the works and, as Iron Man did for Marvel's Phase one and two, Doctor Strange will become the main hub for Marvel's Phase three. The idea is to freshen up the Marvel cinematic universe, to prevent fans from becoming bored with the movies.
A supposed source told Comic Book Movie, "What I can say is that Strange is being groomed to be the next Iron Man. The studio needs a new 'hub' character going into Phase 3 and beyond, as there is audience fatigue, ageing stars and a need to move from Tony Stark/Iron Man as a 'hub' for films."
There have been a number of rumours about who will play the role of Doctor Strange in the Marvel movie, with the latest name being Justin Theroux. Meanwhile, Robert Downey Jr has signed on to appear in The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3 but it seems that there will be no more individual Iron Man movies.
