According to, it looks like Marvel may be making large steps towards expanding their film franchise. Apparently the famous comic book industry has been in talks with directors and screenwriters this week on adapting some of Marvel's lesser known characters to the silver screen. Each film would have a reported budget of around $20 to $40 million, and reportedly would feature characters such as Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Ka-zar, Dazzler (?), and the famous former sorcerer supreme Dr. Strange. While it is likely we will not receive a film adaptation of any of these comics for years to come, it is exciting to hear that some of Marvel's second tier characters will get their time in the spotlight. Of all the character's discussed though, Dr. Strange's name was reportedly the one with the most interest and excitement. There are even some rumors of a large budget adaptation being created following Marvel's Avengers film in 2012.
