You can add another "Community" alum to the ever-expanding ranks of Marvel Cinematic Universe masterminds. As The Hollywood Reporter has learned, "Community" creator and writer Dan Harmon has contributed to the script for the upcoming film "Doctor Strange."
THR notes that Harmon, best known for the fan favorite NBC (and later Yahoo) sitcom "Community" as well as the animated series "Rick and Morty," was tasked with writing "some additional last-minute scenes" for the film's reshoots. Harmon was apparently brought onto "Doctor Strange" after principal photography had wrapped. One source told THR that his scenes were for "additional photography." Harmon previously wrote the screenplay for 2006's "Monster House" and did uncredited work on 2008's "Kung Fu Panda."
"Community" directors Joe and Anthony Russo have found great success with Marvel; they directed "Captain America: Winter Soldier" and "Captain America: Civil War" and are currently preparing to direct "Avengers: Infinity War" and its follow-up "Avengers" movie. "Community" cast members Danny Pudi and Jim Rash appeared in "Winter Soldier" and "Civil War," respectively. Donald Glover has also been cast in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" in an unrevealed role.
"Doctor Strange's" screenplay was co-written by director Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill; Jon Spaihts also has a story credit on the film. Directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwitel Ejiofor and more, "Doctor Strange" opens on November 4, 2016.
