R.I.P. Steve Ditko

Ditko

The famed creator of many of the greatest characters in comic book history – including Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, The Question, and Squirrel Girl –  Steve Ditko, has passed at the age of 90. Ditko, despite being one of the most notable creators in all of comic books, was notoriously reclusive, having never done an interview, and with few pictures of him existing.

Steve Ditko will be remembered forever as one of the greatest, and he will be sorely missed.

Nightmare Confirmed for Doctor Strange Sequel

Nightmare

As of right now, a Doctor Strange sequel isn’t exactly in the cards. However, that’s not stopping writer C. Robert Cargill and director Scott Derrickson from planning their next move with the Sorcerer Supreme. The first matter of business? Confirmation that Nightmare will act as the sequel’s main villain, with Baron Mordo beginning his transformation into Strange’s perfect antagonist.

Me and Scott have not laid the groundwork for it but what I can say is that I have a feeling that whatever Nightmare is involved with, Baron Mordo, being somebody who considers himself the defender of natural law will have something to do with it. For those of you who have ever read the comics, you know that Baron Mordo has a very particular arc, and that’s something we discussed with Chiwetel while working on the first movie. And part of the reason Chiwetel wanted to play Mordo was because he has a definitive ending as a character and it’s such a fascinating ending. And I do know that whether we’re attached or not, that Marvel plans on working towards that ending and fully realizing Mordo as more than just a cardboard cutout villain, but actually taking him to kind of Loki levels of awesomeness. That’s the goal with him.

Doctor Strange Writer Joins Justice League Dark

jld

The cinematic adaptation of Justice League Dark has been floundering after Doug Liman left the project earlier this year. The studio has been unable to find a replacement director, and treatments have been sub-par at best, leading to the studio sending the project back to the drawing board.

Now, The Hashtag Show is reporting that Doctor Strange and Prometheus writer, Jon Spaihts, has joined the project to pen a new draft of the screenplay. With his experience in the world of magic and mystics, over in the Marvel Universe, this spells good news for the project, as it still remains a fan-favorite, ripe with anticipation.

Is Mads Mikkelsen Interested in Doctor Doom?

mads

Mads Mikkelsen has been an actor on the rise for quite some time, now. The last few years have been a boon for him with prominent roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Doctor Strange, the cult-hit television show, Hannibal, and the much anticipated video game Death Stranding from director Hideo Kojima.

Now, an interview with Screen Geek shows he’s circling the newly announced role of Victor Von Doom in Noah Hawley’s (Legion, Fargo) upcoming solo adaptation. Mikkelsen famously auditioned for the role of Reed Richards in Josh Trank’s disastrous Fantastic Four reboot, with no lines and ridiculous movements expected, he walked out on the audition in frustration.

Yeah, it’s always interesting. They are experimenting with doing some of the villain’s stories as well. Let’s see if they do that. I’m not familiar that they’ve done it with anyone yet. They haven’t done it with The Joker [and] they haven’t done it with The Penguin. So we’ll see when that day comes. Well, I hope that all characters have a little more rounded shape in the sense that they have two sides of the coin. Yes, they are villains. Hannibal is a baddie – but at the same time, we kind of like him. I think all characters – goodies or baddies, should have a little of both and I think that every actor looks for that in a character.
