It’s not a secret anymore. For those of you who don’t know what I’ve been doing for the past year, I’ve been writing DOCTOR STRANGE for Marvel Studios. And I couldn’t be happier or prouder. Our cast and crew are amazing and I’m having the best time.


The film’s script previously had a draft turned in by Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer with Jon Spaihts most recently working on it. Let us know what you think about Cargill working on the film’s script in the comments section below.
