"Marvel's Doctor Strange" gets a Cool Writer

Does the name C. Robert Cargill mean anything to you?

If you haven't read endless websites pertaining to the world of movies for many years like I have, it probably doesn't. C. Robert Cargill is actually a budding screenwriter in the world of Hollywood. If you are a horror fan, then you are probably familiar with the "Sinister" movies at this point. The first "Sinister" movie came out in 2012, and that movie was written by C. Robert Cargill. It also happens to be one of the best horror films in recent memory.

Before Cargill began to become a film scribe, he was a film reviewer for a website called AintItCoolNews.com. He wrote several reviews under the pseudonym Massawyrm. What that is supposed to say, I am not entirely sure. But I can tell you that he was one of the most gifted and most insightful film critics that came out of the AintItCool gang. So it is absolutely no surprise that he became a screenwriter in his own right. He's also written a few urban fantasy novels that I am thinking about picking up and reading at some point. But I have some pretty big news pertaining to this beloved film critic, author and screenwriter.

Scott Derrickson is directing "Doctor Strange" for Marvel. Scott Derrickson also happened to be the director of "Sinister" in 2012. Cargill and Derrickson met at a bar in Las Vegas, where Cargill pitched the idea for "Sinister," which led the two new friends to capitalize on the idea. With Derrickson directing "Doctor Strange," I shouldn't be surprised that he put a good word in for his friend C. Robert Cargill and it was recently released in Austin, Texas that C. Robert Cargill will be co-writing "Doctor Strange" for Marvel.

My interest in this movie just went up. And I was already primed for the movie.

The world of Doctor Strange takes us to different dimensions and deals in the world of the cosmos. Doctor Strange's abilities come from the cosmic realms. This is going to be a darker and weirder Marvel film than we are probably used to, which is why Derrickson was such a good fit for the movie. I already know that Cargill is going to do some great penmanship on the film.

"Doctor Strange" will star Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Tilda Swinton, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen and Amy Landecker. It will be released in November 2016 and will take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
