Even CNN is getting in on it!

CNN tries to prognosticate as to what properties Disney might be interested in as they run a slideshow on Marvel's next 5 superheroes. CNN's candidates: Sub-Mariner, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Doctor Strange and Morbius.

Morbius? Are they kidding? Morbius might be a contender for one of the villains in Spider-Man 4 as stated here, so I don't know whether CNN is basing this on actual development info or if they asked Karl in the copy room what he'd like to see. I suspect something along the lines of the latter.

Just as an addendum, I know that Guillermo del Toro was talking about doing Doctor Strange (although it looks like The Hobbit films will be taking up much of his energy in the near future) and Ray Park was attached to talk of an Iron Fist movie some time ago. It just seems like they're trying to generate water cooler chats than actually having something substantial to report. Making news by reporting unfounded speculation.
