Marvel's president of production Kevin Feige has confirmed to Movies.com that a Doctor Strange movie is currently in 'active development'.

When quizzed on the issue during an interview on Thor: The Dark World, Feige stated the studio wouldn't reveal when it will land in cinemas until mid-2014.

"Doc Strange, as I've been saying for years, is a movie I believe we should make," said Feige.

"We're just figuring out how to make it a great movie. It is in active development right now.

"Whether that's one of the movies we announce for 2016 or 2017, we have to see. I think it'll be the middle of next year before we announce officially what the post-Ant-Man films will be. 

Doctor Strange is expected to feature as part of Marvel's Phase 3, which currently includes Ant-Man in 2016 and it may form one of the yet-not-announced films landing in summer 2016 and summer 2017.

In Marvel comics, Stephen Strange is a former neurosurgeon, who had to leave the profession after a car accident damaged his hands. In his most desperate moment, he meets the mysterious Ancient One, who helps transform Strange into a powerful practicing sorcerer.
