Marvel Doctor Strange

Marvel Studios likes to announce sequels to their movies before or after a film’s release. Whenever it’s the former, it’s because the film is tracking well or got a very warm reception from critics who saw it early. Whenever it’s the latter, it’s because the film did really well at the box office. But it’s different for Doctor Strange. While the film did well at the box office, it wasn’t one of the studio’s best efforts. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t get a sequel, but the fact that it was so successful and the studio hasn’t announced one yet is, well, strange.

Now Doctor Strange screenwriter C. Robert Cargill is talking a little bit about the sequel and his plans for what we could see in it, including the villains and more. See what he had to say below.

The Outer Limits "Demon with a Glass Hand"The Outer Limits "Demon with a Glass Hand"

Scott Derrickson is quite busy lately. He recently finished work on the upcoming horror flick Deliver Us from Evil, which he wrote and directed, and he just landed a huge gig, signing on to direct Doctor Strange for Marvel.

Derrickson is adding another project to his to-do list, re-teaming with his Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill to pen the screenplay for an adaptation of the classic sci-fi/horror TV series The Outer Limits for MGM.

Queen of the Dark Things review header

Queen of the Dark Things
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by C. Robert Cargill
Harper Voyager/ HarperCollins Publishers
Release Date: May 13, 2014
Cover Price: $26.99

Colby Stevens is a really depressed wizard. Colby, his talking dog Gossamer, and his djinn Yashar, hang around a bar called the Cursed and the Damned in Austin, Texas, now fairy-less (thanks to Colby–they were not very nice fairies anyway), where Colby blames himself for the death of his very best friend in the whole world–Ewan.

But now other things, such as a “owl-headed wolf-riding demon,” not only want a piece of Colby, but want him to do a couple of favors for them. If that wasn’t bad enough for our sad man-child wizard, another former dreamwalker friend is gunning for him in a “kill or be killed” fashion. Can he save her? Or lose her as he did Ewan?

Dreams and ShadowsDreams and Shadows

Release Date: February 26, 2013
Cover Price: $24.99

I can’t tell you how many coming-of-age fantasy stories I’ve read in which the young hero is granted or somehow miraculously receives a special power that will help him or her eventually save a kingdom or even a world. These stories—though presenting hardship and struggles for the fledgling protagonist—tend to grasp the idea that having such power and responsibility is a “good” thing, while subsequently producing the happiest of endings. This time, it was different. I devoured screenwriter and former film critic C. Robert Cargill‘s debut novel, Dreams and Shadows—his take on this classic fantasy trope is darkly ominous, yet wonderfully refreshing.

Ewan was kidnapped by fairies as a newborn and raised as one of their own in the Limestone Kingdom. Understanding that he is a human but believing himself to be a part of their community, Ewan is eager to become a fairy; and he believes that day is quickly approaching. Unbeknownst to Ewan, the fairies have other, sinister plans for his future.

Sinister PosterSinister
Directed by Scott Derrickson
Written by C. Robert Cargill
Starring Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance, James Ransone, Vincent D’Onofrio
Summit Entertainment
Rated R | 110 Minutes
Release Date: October 12, 2012

From the producer of Insidious and Paranormal Activity, and the director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister stars Ethan Hawke as Ellison Osborne, a true-crime novelist hell-bent on uncovering the mysterious circumstances regarding a family’s grisly murder.

Sinister opens with Super 8 footage of a family standing under a tree, their hands and feet bound, with bags over their heads and nooses around their necks. Slowly, the family of four is lifted by their necks and strangled, their legs kicking for life, until they are dead.

Months later, Osborne moves into the murdered family’s home with his wife, Tracy (Juliet Rylance), and their two children Ashley (Clare Foley) and Trevor (Michael Hall D’Addario). While his family has no knowledge of their new home’s trouble past, Ellison has strategically moved there to fully investigate the crime scene, as he plans on using the family’s murder as the basis for his new book.
