Jessica Alba acknowledged that appearing in comic-book films Sin City and Fantastic Four has helped her popularity grow.

Appearing on ABC's The Jimmy Kimmel Show on Friday night, Alba was asked about a recent poll in which she was voted the top choice as the most wanted girlfriend.

"People went and saw Sin City and Fantastic Four," Alba said. "I'm so happy that people are supportive."

Alba played Nancy Callahan in Sin City and the Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four. Both franchises are targeted for sequels, with production on Fantastic Four 2 slated to start late this summer.

The Kimmel show was broadcast from Detroit, where Sunday's Super Bowl XL will be played. Alba said she would be attending the game.

Dormammu will be a villain in the upcoming Doctor Strange animated movie, The Continuum has learned.

Doctor Strange is the fourth film in the Marvel/Lionsgate direct-to-video series, following two Ultimate Avengers movies and an Iron Man movie. It will likely be released in late 2006 or early 2007.

Like Iron Man, Doctor Strange will be an origin story. It is unclear if Baron Mordo will also be a villain in the movie.

Frank Paur, whose recent credits include X-Men: Evolution and Spawn: The Animation, is producing both Iron Man and Doctor Strange. The films were written by Greg Johnson, who is currently developing a Wolverine and the X-Men series for television.
