The Doctor Is In! DOCTOR STRANGE #1 Is Coming This Fall!


New York, NY—June 22nd, 2015— The Sorcerer Supreme returns for his first ongoing series in nearly twenty years!  And he’s making house calls! Today, Marvel is pleased to announce DOCTOR STRANGE #1 – a new ongoing series from blockbuster creators Jason Aaron (Star Wars, Thor) and Chris Bachalo (Uncanny X-Men, Avengers)!

Prepare for a side of the Marvel Universe you’ve never seen before as the magical, mystical and all things weird lie at every turn. And if it’s bizarre enough, and you don’t know where to turn – call the Doctor. From inside his Sanctum Sanctorum – the strangest place in this or any universe, the Master of the Mystic Arts protects this realm from the supernatural.

“Get ready for a brand new Doctor Strange for a brand new Marvel Universe,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso.  “Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo have rebuilt Marvel’s ’Sorcerer Supreme’ from the ground up with an excitingly original take that redefines the character going forward.”

A dark new power is rising. One that will have repercussions for all magic users. The threat is growing, and Strange knows he won’t be powerful enough to stop it. If he is to have any kind of hope, it will take a different kind of Sorcerer Supreme. Because all magic comes with a price, and it’s high time Stephen Strange balanced the scales.

“None of Marvel’s other heavy hitters walk the same beat as Dr. Strange,” says Jason Aaron in an upcoming interview with Marvel.com. “None of them have to face the same sorts of repercussions whenever they use their powers. Being the Sorcerer Supreme is a unique responsibility. And it’s one that Stephen Strange embraces. Even though there’s no doubt that his job is one day going to leave him dead, damned or insane. So I want to celebrate all the weirdness that is Dr. Strange, while having him face a challenge unlike anything he’s ever faced before. One that rewrites the rulebook for what it means to be the Sorcerer Supreme.”

The epic adventure begins this Fall as the Marvel’s mightiest magician takes a battle axe straight to evil in DOCTOR STRANGE #1!



Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed new details about the planned integration of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Marvel struck a deal with Sony, which has the movie rights to the character, and plans to introduce the new Spider-Man in a Marvel movie, followed by a new Spider-Manfilm released by Sony, co-produced by Feige.  The character has been confirmed to be Peter Parker, but little else about the new cinematic Spider-Man has been revealed.

The new take on Spider-Man will focus on Peter Parker’s high school years, Feige told Collider.  [E]ven though there’ve been five Spider-Man films, there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet,” he said.  “The most obvious being the ‘young, doesn’t quite fit in’ kid before his powers, and then the fella that puts on a mask and swings around and fights bad guys and doesn’t shut up, which is something we want to play with and we’re excited about.”  He expects to cast an actor that can play the character as a 15-16-year-old.

The character will also get a different costume in its new incarnation, Feige told Crave Online.  “We’ve already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before,” he said.

The first appearance of the MCU Spider-Man is expected to be in Captain America 3, which opens May 6, 2016.  The Spider-Man film premieres July 28, 2017.
