The character was first portrayed in live action by Peter Hooten in the 1978 television movie Dr. Strange. Watch online Doctor Strange A Marvel Studios live-action film adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role is set for a November 2016 theatrical release.

Doctor Strange was initially listed as being in pre-production in 1986, with a script by Bob Gale.[49] For unknown reasons Gale's film never went further into production,online Doctor Strange and by 1989, Alex Cox had co-written a script with Stan Lee. The script had Doctor Strange traveling to the Fourth Dimension, before ending up on Easter Island, where he would face Dormammu. Cox and Lee's script was almost made by Regency, but at the time, Regency Films were distributed by Warner Bros., who was in a dispute with Marvel over merchandising, so the film did not proceed further. By December 1992, Wes Craven signed to write and direct, with Savoy Pictures distributing,and a release set for either 1994 or 1995.[53] David S. Goyer had completed a script in 1995 for the film.[54] By April 1997, Columbia Pictures had purchased the film rights and Jeff Welch was working on a new screenplay, with Bernie Brillstein and Brad Grey producing.

By April 2000, Columbia dropped Doctor Strange, which then had Michael France attached to write a script and interest from Chuck Russell and Stephen Norrington to direct.[56] By June 2001, Dimension Films acquired the film rights, with Goyer back on board as writer and director. Goyer hinted scheduling conflicts might ensue with a film adaptation of Murder Mysteries,[57] and promised not to be highly dependent on computer-generated imagery.[54] However, by August 2001, Miramax Films acquired the film rights from Dimension,[58] and by March 2002, Goyer had dropped out of the project.[59] A 2005 release date was announced the next March,[60] while in June 2004, a script still had yet to be written. Marvel Studios CEO Avi Arad stated, "We are nowhere with that. That's a tough one to write, but we are working on it. We are trying to find the real Jerry Garcia of the writing community."[61] In April 2005, Paramount Pictures acquired Doctor Strange from Miramax, as part of Marvel Studios' attempt to independently produce their own films. At the time, the film was projected to have a budget of no more than $165 million.[62]

In March 2009, Marvel hired writers to help come up with creative ways to launch its lesser-known properties, such as Black Panther, Cable, Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Nighthawk and Vision.[63] In June 2010, Marvel Studios hired Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write Doctor Strange.[64] While promoting for Transformers: Dark of the Moon in April 2011, actor Patrick Dempsey indicated he was lobbying to play the title character.[65] In January 2013, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Doctor Strange would appear in some capacity as part of "Phase Three" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[66] Feige reiterated that a Doctor Strange feature film was in development at Marvel Studios that May,[67][68] and again in November.[69]

In February 2014, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Marvel was considering Mark Andrews, Jonathan Levine, Nikolaj Arcel and Dean Israelite to direct the film, and was considering Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger to rewrite the film's script.[70] Feige confirmed that Marvel was considering prospective candidates, but stated "That article [from The Hollywood Reporter] was not true about who we're meeting or what level anybody is."[71] By March the list of directors that Marvel was considering included Andrews, Levine, and Scott Derrickson. Feige also described how magic would be represented in the film, saying, "You don't get into it in Harry Potter, but if a scientist went to Hogwarts he'd find out how some of that stuff is happening! We're not going to spend a lot of time on that, but there will be some of that. And particularly for a character like Strange, who goes from a man of science to a man of faith and who traverses both worlds." Feige added that "Doctor Strange needs to be a Ditko/Kubrick/Miyazaki/The Matrix mind-trip."

In April 2014, Feige stated that Doctor Strange would be the "doorway" into the supernatural side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[74] He expanded on this in July 2014, saying, "Now, what is the definition of "supernatural"? It varies. We like the idea of playing with alternate dimensions. [Doctor] Strange, in a very [Steve] Ditko, crazy astro-trip way, traveling through dimensions and traveling through other realms is something we think is very cool. And playing with perceptions of reality...We’re [also] going to play a lot with the notion of [physics and quantum mechanics] as an explanation for how the sorcerers do what they do."[75] Feige later revealed that the Astral Dimension, Dark Dimension, and Mirror Dimension would be seen in the film.Regarding the appearance and portrayal of dimensions in the film, Feige stated, "I think when comic book fans hear parallel dimensions or multiple dimensions they think of Earth-616 and Earth 617 and Earth 618. That’s all possible. But what we’re playing with in this world is there are dimensions – that the other dimensions are not just parallel realities, although some of them are... there are dimensions that are so mind-bending that you can barely perceive them; there are dimensions where a lot of the Ditko images come from; there are dimensions that are just mind trips that the human mind can barely fathom... But we’re playing as much with the notion of the multiverse as much as alien dimensions, for lack of a better term, than parallel realities where there’s Strange that wears Iron Man armor – we’re not there yet."
