The site reports that the new film will the be the first character introduction to not include an origin story, which has been a major component of every Marvel Phase 1 and Phase 2 film so far – although less so in James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy.
There’s no source cited so this is best treated as a rumour, but the 2010 script by Conan writer Joshua Oppenheimer is being junked in favour of a complete rewrite from Prometheus‘ Jon Spaihts which will see the movie – directed by Sinister and Deliver Us From Evil‘s Scott Derrickson – open with Stephen Strange as a full-bore Sorcerer Supreme.
Which would make total sense if he’s already been namechecked by HYDRA as a potential threat as in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Scott Derrickson’s new film Deliver Us From Evil is in cinemas 20 August 2014. You can buy Sinister on Blu-ray for £6.76 at Amazon.co.uk.
