DR. STRANGE 2 :multiverse of darkness – might be Directed by Sam Raimi

Confirmed by Deadline earlier today, Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spider-Man) is in talks with Marvel to direct the upcoming DR. STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS! It was said that Marvel wants to go with more of a horror tone for this film, so bringing in Raimi makes total sense!

He’s no stranger to the superhero genre, either, practically pioneering it (commercially anyway) with Spider-Man in 2002. Yes, I’m aware other superhero films existed prior, but none enjoyed the same degree of success that Spider-Man did, so again, Raimi makes sense.

Scott Derrickson recently exited the project due to creative differences, leaving the door open, and leaving Marvel looking for a new director. Derrickson will be staying on as executive producer, however.

I liked what Derrickson did with the first Dr. Strange, but now I am oh so curious to see what Raimi can do!
