Groovy! Sam Raimi may be directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Scott Derrickson directed the first Doctor Strange movie and was all set to direct the sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for Marvel Studios. However, he left the project due to creative differences. He is still involved as an executive producer.

Since then, it has all been a little quiet on the Sorcerer Supreme front.

That’s all changed now as Variety has the exciting news that Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spider-Man) is in talks to direct the sequel. Raimi is no stranger to the Marvel universe as he directed 2002’s Spider-Man, the excellent Spider-Man 2 and the other one we try not to talk about too much!

As there is talk that Doctor Strange 2 will be delving into the creepier side of Marvel, you can’t really go wrong with Mr. Evil Dead himself! I do love the Evil Dead films.

If he takes the gig, I wonder whether he will get Bruce Campbell to come out to play? Although I now want to see Campbell play Galactus which isn’t someone that Doctor Strange would typically go up against.

Also, as it will be dealing with the Multiverse and different versions of the heroes, could we possibly see Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man?

Benedict Cumberbatch is returning as the Sorcerer Supreme. Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor are also expected to reprise their roles from the original film. Elizabeth Olsen is also due back as Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff, for a storyline that Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has said will link up with her Disney Plus series “WandaVision,” which will debut in December.

Rachel McAdams, however, will not reprise her role as Strange’s colleague Christine Palmer.

Would you like to see Raimi direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?
