Patrick Dempsey has already revealed he won't be returning to Grey's Anatomy after next season. The actor is looking to take his career back where it started ‐ movies. Dempsey isn't looking to return to movies like Can't Buy Me Love and Lover Boy that jump-started his career in the 1980s, but, instead, Dempsey is hoping to continue his association with comic book movies that began with his role in this summer's Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
In April, Dempsey revealed an interest in the Marvel Comics character of Doctor Strange, saying he would "love to play" the role. In a recent interview with MTV, Dempsey reiterated his desire for the role, admitting, "I really want to do it."

So, it's like, how do we enter into that and get it so it doesn't lose its essence, but, at the same time, how do you do it with the right story? And I think the fans really need to speak up and say, hey, what do they want to see.
