No Origin Story for DOCTOR STRANGE, New Original Script Being Written

As everyone knows by now, every time Marvel Studios releases a new character film, it turns out to be an origin story. That will not be the case when Doctor Strange hits theaters in 2016. According to Devin Faraci of Bad Ass Digest, Marvel had a script written by Joshua Oppenheimer in 2010 but that draft didn't line up with the cinematic universe that we have now, so it was trashed. But now Faraci reveals that Marvel is new thing is " No More Origin Stories" and that this new script Spaihts is working on is brand new.

"So, for Dr. Strange they've had a script in-house forever. It is a pretty standard origin story for Doctor Strange. It's got Baron Mordo as the bad guy. That's all gone. Marvel's new thing is no more origin stories. So, Dr. Strange movie no longer has an origin. It begins in medias res. It has Dr. Strange already established as the Sorcerer Supreme. It is a totally new script. Jon Spaihts is working totally new, On his own, without any of the previous stuff. Not even touching the previous script." - Devin Faraci
