Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, is the man with all the superhero secrets. He knows everything about all the Marvel movies we will be getting and hope to be getting, and naturally when Mr. Feige goes out in public to promote 'Thor 2,' you can bet he's gonna get a ton of questions about the current and upcoming slate of Marvel movies.
As it so happens, he did get those questions and he gave a lot of answers. So, what have we learned about Phase 3?
It seems Marvel is not giving up on Joseph Gordon-Levitt. After considering him for the role of Peter Quill/Star-Lord for their upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' a role which ultimately went to the now-chiseled Chris Pratt, rumor has it that the thriving studio behind 'The Avengers' wants the 'Dark Knight Rises' star to become their 'Doctor Strange.'

Not long ago, Marvel Studios and Disney announced two untitled superhero movies will be hitting theaters in 2016 and 2017, respectively, as part of their post-'Avengers 2' lineup for Phase 3. Although, no other information was released at the time, 'Doctor Strange' seemed like a viable choice for one of those slots, based on previous statements from Marvel reps. Now, more than ever, it looks like that will indeed be the case.
We know what Marvel movies are part of Phase 2 of the Cinematic Universe: 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor 2,' 'Captain America 2,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'The Avengers 2.' Beyond that, all that has been confirmed is Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man.' But in an article on the future of 'The Avengers' we've got confirmation on what other movies Marvel is developing and it looks like Phase 3 is about to get very, very big.
If you're Marvel Studios, you've got a reason to feel a little cocky. Their film 'The Avengers' was 2012's biggest hit by a wide margin, and they've already set up a game plan of films that stretch into 2015. Most of those are sequels, but they have a deep body of characters to draw from, and -- as rumored -- one of the next characters to transition to the big screen will be Doctor Strange.
