It seems that Marvel Studios can do no wrong, churning out hit after hit with a success rate only shared by the likes of Pixar under the leadership of mega-producer Kevin Feige. The studio has a huge slate of features scheduled for the next 6 years that includes an adaptation of the little-known property 'Doctor Strange' for 2016. Now the studio has cast its Doctor, and it seems another casting coup for the young studio.
