Avengers: Endgame doesn't hit theaters for several months, but sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that a Doctor Strange sequel is already in the works. Sure, the good doctor was dusted along with half of all living things in the universe in Avengers: Infinity War. We never believed they were all truly gone for good, and this news confirms it. Marvel, however, declined to comment.

There's no script yet; that should be in the works early next year. But per The Hollywood Reporter, Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Stephen Strange, along with Benedict Wong as his right-hand man, Wong. Rachel McAdams is rumored to be returning as well, as Stephen Strange's somewhat-reluctant love interest.

That's all the details we have right now, but the ending of the first Doctor Strange certainly set things up for Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) to return as a worthy opponent. Mordo became disillusioned when he discovered that the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) he followed so devotedly achieved her long life by drawing on power from the Dark Dimension. A post-credits scene showed Mordo taking away the mystical energy that another acolyte had been using to walk despite being paralyzed in an accident. So it makes sense he would play some role in the sequel.

Study finds The Wizard of Oz is the most influential film of all time

The rankings are based on an "influence score" determined by how many times each film has been referenced in subsequent films.

Well, this is sure to spark some intensive debate. The classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz is the most influential movie of all time, with Star Wars: A New Hope and Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho in second and third place, respectively. That's the conclusion of a new study by Italian scientists in the journal Applied Network Science, suggesting a fresh metric for determining a film's success, similar to that used for scientific publications.

According to co-author Livio Bioglio of the University of Turin, the usual metrics used to measure a film's success are inadequate for evaluating its true quality and significance. Box office receipts, for example, are affected by such non-aesthetic factors as advertising and distribution, while reviews are by nature inherently subjective. Plenty of now-classic films bombed at the box office and/or were critically savaged at the time of their release. (Ahem. Blade Runner, anyone?)

The Italian scientists reasoned that maybe the science of complex networks can help. "We propose an alternative method to box office takings and reviews for analyzing the success of a film," said Bioglio. "We have developed an algorithm that uses references between movies as a measure for success, and which can also be used to evaluate the career of directors, actors and actresses, by considering their participation in top-scoring movies."
