It seems Dan Harmon is getting his toes wet in the superhero writing pool. The creator of Community and co-creator of Rick and Morty was tapped by Marvel Studios to write last minute additional scenes for the upcoming Doctor Strange movie, according to reports.
Harmon may not have any superhero credits to his name, but does have a reputation with geek community, largely due to Harmontown, live show and podcast where he plays roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons and Shadowrun with friends in front of an audience. Joe and Anthony Russo – the directors of Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War – also worked with Harmon on Community, leading to a trend of Community-related cameos in the Marvel cinematic universe.
Sources tell THR that Harmon was brought on after principal photography wrapped and that his scenes will be filmed during planned reshoots.
Harmon is joining director Scott Derrickson as a co-writer, as well as C. Robert Cargill. Derrickson and Cargill share a story credit by Jon Spaihts.
Marvel's Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City's Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
