I don’t know what my story angle would be. The character I’d have the most fun writing would be Doctor Strange,the master of the mystic arts, he was always one of my favorites … but before I did that I’d have my lawyers meet with Marvel’s lawyers and work out an iron-clad contract that would say that whatever I did in the story would continue on forever and would never be retconned, rebooted or reimagined out of the universe when some later writer decided to mess around with it … I always hated reboots and retconns and the fact that a new writer comes in and ‘un-does’ what the previous writer did and brings dead characters back to life, kills new characters. … but I did love Doctor Strange and if I was to write a Marvel character him and his dimensions would be it.
I’d separate him off from the rest of the Marvel universe and not make him part of a team. He doesn’t really fit any of that stuff, he’s a guy that shouldn’t even be known to the rest of the heroes, living on the edge of the Marvel Universe protecting the world and our dimension and plane from dangers and forces out there that the other characters like Spider-Man and The Avengers don’t even dream exist. He’s our wall against Cthullu and the Old-Ones and the dread Dormammu. That’s when Doctor Strange was at his best, Stan Lee and Ditko were [writing] him in just that manner.
Someone please tell me why is he even thinking about writing something that is not Fire and Ice series. What is there 2 or 3 books left in the series and nevermind he still says he wants to write another Dunk and Egg book.
Plus the HBO series The Game of Thrones is going to catch up with the books in a couple of years and then what? Oh sorry HBO I was writing Dr. Strange for marvel and oh I was also writing scripts for the show.
I have an idea why don’t you just finish the books and then you can do all those dream projects you keep talking about.
It’s pretty much that simple really, and if I was Marvel/Disney I wouldn’t go near Mr. Martin with his track record of delays issue #1 would come out let’s say this year and issue #2 won’t come out till 2020 that’s right 8 years from now just like his books what makes anyone think this would be any different.
Then last but not least he wants it so Marvel can never change his story, what company would ever let you or anyone do this. Here is the answer NO ONE WOULD!
So Mr. Martin with all this being said my advice for you is just focus at the task at hand and finish your Fire and Ice series.
