Guillermo Del Toros skrotade Doctor Strange-manus avslöjat
Långt innan MCU lanserades och Benedict Cumberbatch ens fanns på kartan att spela den mäktiga trollkarlen så gjordes det flera försök att göra film av superhjälten. Ett av de mest långt gångna försöken till detta var ett samarbete mellan skaparen av Sandman, Neil Gaiman och ingen mindre än Guillermo del Toro. Det var under en intervju på Happy, Sad, Confused-podden med Josh Horowitz som Gaiman gick in i detalj kring den länge okända produktionen och hade följande att säga.
"Kevin and I have spoken a few times over the years on things. The only one that I wish, although, odds are probably, I think the way they did it commercially was better than...but I remember back in 2007, having minimalistic conversations with Kevin Feige about 'What about Doctor Strange?' Then talking to Guillermo Del Toro, and Guillermo and I having these ideas about Doctor Strange and starting the beginning, me starting the beginning of the conversation with Kevin about 'I could do Doctor Strange with Guillermo.' And basically, they said 'We just want to concentrate on the core characters right now.
Doctor Strange is way up the line, we don't want to go there.' There were some cool things in it. My favorite Doctor Strange thing was the idea of...the one thing that we really wanted to do was have his adventures, have him become an alcoholic and a disbarred physician, all that sort of stuff, happen in the 1920s. So the idea is that, he went though all of that and the training to become the world's greatest magician maybe in the early '30s, late '20s, and he's been living in Greenwich Village for 90 years looking the same in his place, and nobody really notices. We just sort of liked that idea, and he would have been sort of out of time. But other than that, it would have just been very sort of Steve Ditko, because, you know, that's the best."
Hur tror du att en Doctor Strange-film av Gaiman och Del Toro hade kunnat bli?
