Neilalien : A Doctor Strange Fansite : A Comic Book Weblog  

A mysterious Twitter account knowing Marvel Studios news in the past recently tweeted Marvel in negotiations with Viggo Mortensen for an unspecified role in one of their Phase 2 films and There's something "Strange" about Thor: The Dark World, leading to speculation Viggo would be showing up as Dr. Strange in Thor 2 [Marvel exec has denied the Viggo part, but Doc could still be in the film?] [16 September 02012]

Doctor Strange: Season One is in shops! [more preview] [inked pages for sale] [wow Emma Rios is so cute! web interview with Pak] [quick initial review: the art is quite good and dynamic (even if Neilalien prefers a cleaner, less line-y style) with many striking splashes including the Vishanti; as for the story: Neilalien's said it a few times before: for long-time Doc fans, we want new stories! like with JMS' Strange miniseries, this is another $25 to again tweak and hippify an origin story that isn't broken] [update: extensive SanctumSanctorumComix analysis] [adding Wong as an equal student of the Ancient One, Pak fave Sofia Di Cosimo, and some Lord of the Rings, and losing all of Doc's articulateness- what about the origin does this fix?- at least Pak avoided the 'Chosen One' temptation] ["the comic book version of Rush Hour"] [15 September 02012]
