Confirmed: Doctor Strange, Ant-Man to be Part of Marvel's 'Phase Three' Movies

Yesterday, we reported on how Kevin Feige teased the over-arching approach Marvel Studios will be taking in the run up to Avengers 2, including some insight into the first movie of the "Phase Two" line-up, Iron Man 3.

Today, MTV News reports that Feige has confirmed that two Marvel characters will be getting their first stand-alone movies as part of the studio's "Phase Three" line-up.

We've known for a while now that Edgar Wright's Ant-Man would be hitting theaters on November 6, 2015 making it an obvious inclusion into the "Phase Three" package. Feige has confirmed that Doctor Strange will be joining the "Phase Three" line-up.

"Doctor Strange, which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of [the Phase Three movies]. He's a great, original character and he check s the box off this criteria that I have: he's totally different from anything else we have, just like Guardians of the Galaxy. He's totally different from anything we've done before, as is Ant-Man, which keeps us excited."

Feige didn't announce a target date for Doctor Strange, though we can assume it will arrive sometime in 2016 or 2017, allowing fans plenty of time to debate who would be the perfect actor to play the part and who should direct.

Feige also talked a bit about the overall approach to "Phase Three," saying that the third stage will look to bring new characters to the big screen.

"So much of the stories w're telling [right now] is about the core Avengers characters we've now met, and they'll be evolving in big, surprising ways, in Cap's next movie and Thor's next movie and of course, Iron Man 3, as we get them all into the next Avengers film. Beyond that… Ant-Man is the only one officially announced, but you probably don't have to look too far to guess at the next list of characters we're toying with and beginning to develop."

Are you excited to see Marvel lock in Doctor Strange as part of their "Phase Three" movies? Who would you cast and who should direct? What other Marvel characters are you hoping Feige and the Marvel team bring to the big screen?
