Marvel Studios taking meetings for Doctor Strange

While its been mentioned since last year, Marvel Studios is finally moving forward with getting Doctor Strange off the ground. The Hollywood Reporter states that multiple directors have either met with Marvel Studios or are about to meet, in order to discuss tackling Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme. The people in the running are Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies). Another two people that have met with Marvel are writers Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger, who wrote both Kung Fu Panda films for Dreamworks.
