We are just over two weeks away from the premiere of Doctor Strange, and Tilda Swinton already wants to make a movie about the Ancient One.
“I’m pretty confidently dropping hints in Kevin Feige’s ear about a prequel. I’m constantly harassing him about that. I don’t know if it’ll get anywhere.”
Swinton stated that she has gone as far as to write notes and put them in Feige’s pockets or leave messages in lipstick on his mirror. Though it might be cool to see an origin story for such a character, it is not likely to happen at any time in the foreseeable future. Being that this is the first time we are seeing Strange in the MCU, there is always that fear of a move not doing well when dealing with a new character. Comic fans are happy to see Doctor Strange on screen, and the promotions/marketing have done a tremendous job of getting attention and hype for the film. It also has to be considered that Black Widow and Hawkeye solo films have been desired by fans ever since the first Avengers film. We know that the Ancient One will play a key role in Doctor Strange, but if two members of the Avengers haven’t gotten solo films yet, then it’s pretty safe to say that we won’t be seeing one about Swinton’s character any time soon. But, never say never!
