    Looks like it's finally moving along. I really hope that Strange is played by literally anybody who is not Johnny Depp.

    Good lord, what a terrible director! This just bums me out. I love Doctor Strange, and this guy is practically the textbook definition of studio hack.

    Haven't seen any movies this guy was credited with. However, it seems like he does horror stuff. That's a genre Marvel has yet to tackle cinematically, but I hope its the direction they take.

    Thaaaaaaaaaat's an interesting choice? Gonna withhold judgement until we see more of course, but of the films he's done I've seen 2 (Exorcism of Emily Rose & Day the Earth Stood Still remake) and liked neither. Although Day The Earth Stood Still wasn't terrible, it just kind of meandered and never really 'grabbed' me. I remember liking the updated version of the concept though. Didn't this guy also do Sinister? That was well-received, right? Anyway if true (looks like it, from that tweet) I wish him good luck, hopefully they'll get a good script and decent cast and stuff!
    November 2014 favourite: ...And Then Emily Was Gone. Little mystery/horror gem set on a small Scottish island. Some fun local legends which I'm not sure if they're made up for this story, or are common local folk tales. Think Shutter Island, then add monsters; does our main character imagine them, or is nobody else seeing them...? (By Lees/Laurie/Wilson/Bell, through Comix Tribe).

    Bananu Ramu Keanu was chosen for Klaatu in the remake of DTESS by the same director. This will likely suck.

    But people were leery upon learning Ledger would be the Joker and many sneered because of his crappy Knight movie with the Queen song.

    I could also point out how much people dumped on the Russo's when they were chosen to direct TWS. Yeah those people are singing a very different tune now.

    I haven't seen his films so I really have no idea about this guy's style. Looking at his profile in Rotten Tomatoes seems that he does horror mostly and his better received film was Sinister. I've heard that his latest has some good buzz, let's see how it goes.

    Horror Director seems a good fit I suppose.

    Very good that a Dr. Strange film is on the way. Hopefully some cool casting will take place and the film will come out fairly soon.
