Marvel's "Doctor Strange" Hires "Prometheus" Writer

Posted: June 19th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
MarvelSubmit Comment
It was recently reported that Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Day the Earth Stood Still) has been hired to direct Marvel's upcoming "Doctor Strange" movie. And now comes word that "Prometheus" writer Jon Spaihts has signed on to write the script.

The plan is to put the film into production as soon as possible. The studio already has a short list of actors to play the lead role, including Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch. And Deadline has just confirmed the rumor that Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) is also being considered.

"Doctor Strange" currently doesn't have a release date, but will likely hit theaters on July 8th, 2016 or May 5th, 2017. Both dates have been secured by Marvel for the company's upcoming movies.

In all fairness, as much as I hate Prometheus, that guy wrote the GOOD version of the script, not the stupid one that was used.

Let's just hope they don't bring in Lindelof to rewrite Spaight's script.

Jon Spaihts is not entirely clear of the bad script that was Prometheus. Both he and Lindelof provided good and bad things (unfortunately, more off the latter) for that film, just about equally.

But Spaihts overall is still the superior of the two. So let's hope he rises to the ocassion.

The other potential problem: don't cast Leto. I don't care how good of an actor he is or proved with that tranny role; the guy still has zero charisma to lead a superhero movie.

Nobody gives a rat's ass about Doctor Strange. Seriously. f*ck him. Marvel should just take $100 million in cash out to the parking lot and set it on fire. They'll come out ahead in the long run.

Writer? Really? They're not going to do what they did the first time, which was throw into a hat every Ancient Astronaut and Hollywood cliche known to man and then draw from that hat fifty times?


"Let's just hope they don't bring in Lindelof to rewrite Spaight's script."

Actually, contrary to what I've been saying, seems Ridley is responsible for more of the script's stupidity than I had previously imagined, which lets Lindel-off-the-hook for some of that film's conceptual transgressions.

@minkowski

What were your issues with Prometheus?

Apart from it being contrived, I found it had too many of those, "Did somebody really just do that?" moments.
minkowski writes:
on June 19th, 2014 at 9:08:27 PM

^^My issues? Everything other than the acting, direction and VFX. Basically anything involving the story, plot or script, including most of the dialogue.

The reason I said what I did above is because I've read Damon has gone on record claiming that much of Prometheus' nonsense came directly from Scott, who demanded the movie be about ancient aliens and whatnot.
minkowski writes:
on June 19th, 2014 at 9:11:31 PM

Of course I completely don't buy into that exegesis because Damon wrote for 'Lost', which made even less sense than Prometheus...
minkowski writes:
on June 19th, 2014 at 9:13:46 PM

*don't completely...

Sounds like a cop-out to me, but whatever. It is what it is, and there's nothing to be done about it.

"Some scenes – such as the Prometheus ramming the Engineer ship during the finale – were added at Ridley Scott’s request."

I love the people who think those who hate Prometheus do so because it strays too far from the franchise. lol. Like I give a sh*t about the Alien/Aliens franchise.

No, what makes Prometheus a sh*tty film is the laughably-drawn characters, the insipid plot that makes (and I cannot emphasize this enough) ZERO f*ckING SENSE and the deus ex machina exemplars of formulaic plot advancement, such as Waylon Jennings, I mean Weyland, reappearing even though a) we all purposely thought he was dead (oooh, big reveal!) and b) he was never even remotely integral to the story.

Really, how the f*ck can you enjoy a film that is buckshot through with non sequiturs? Not a few, either because the film's entire story foundation simply does not work at even a common sense level.

People are stupid. People on the internet are even more stupid.
Knut writes:

I had relatively high hopes for Prometheus and walked away really disappointed.

The plot meant nothing. It should have attempted to be a standalone storyline in the 'world' of Alien rather than connect to it.

Weyland was not needed. His daughter was not required. The characters were one dimensional and created no connection to the audience.

Ramming the ship made no sense in the context of how disinterested the Captain was throughout the story.

Missed opportunity.

They should have thrown a black obelisk into the background of one of the closing shots.

"Exactly. I think it is both a genuine smart prequel as well as rondo-moderato into Cameron and Jenet congenitaly absurd course for the surnumeral hunt for a weirdest & newest kind of monster. Those of Scott, beyond the God/Engineer/perverse-patient-destructor, are just a final faint beta-version of the Alien itself and the weirdest monster is just like that of OrsonWells : it is an invisible enemy – isn’t it smart? It is also very fertile in terms of giving new ADN to the franchise (other than that of a writen-high-on-cocain new-found-cousin-to-breed-with Predator)."




BAWAHAHAHAHAHA! I think Cannon wrote this one, because for all the pretentious use of unnecessary language, f*cker can't spell cocaine and congenitally like Cannon can't spell occasion.

Genuinely smart. LMAO. Yeah, opinions differ, but some are just f*cking plain wrong.

There's nothing "smart" about Prometheus. Nothing. Unless you think rehashing the Book of Ezekiel, that fag from Ancient Aliens, and Erich von Daniken's bullsh*t, into a script cribbed together by an autistic child is "intelligent".



Smart today is what stupid people call stupid sh*t. Everything else they simply cannot and will not understand. That's the legacy of the pre-Idiocracy generation.

I gotta get the f*ck out of here, but just one thing.

"Ramming the ship made no sense in the context of how disinterested the Captain was throughout the story."

Terrible characterization. f*cker spent the entire movie acting like he went a trillion billion miles from Earth just to f*ck white women and not give a sh*t in general. But then when someone says he has to stop the Engineer's ship, for whatever reason never fully explained, suddenly he's David Farragut screaming "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.

What the f*ck ever.

You mean monolith, right?
Knut writes:

Rookie error. Yes, monolith.

My reference makes no sense otherwise.
minkowski writes:
on June 20th, 2014 at 1:03:10 AM

I wasn't correcting you. I assumed you were referring to the obelisks in Spaight's screenplay, but I was riffing on the black monolithic ship and Engineers at the beginning that mimicked the Monolith in 2001. Same thing.
Knut writes:

2001. Correct.
