On his social media, director Scott Derrickson opened up about his departure from directing ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’.
The director dropped the project in January 2020, alleging creative disagreements with the studio.
However, Derrickson will serve as an executive producer and will still earn a very high salary for the work.
And he showed he didn’t regret the decision.
“I’m no longer a source of MCU news. I am only a distant executive producer in the continuity of [grande] Sam Raimi for Doctor Strange. A choice I made and I am very happy to have made it, ”he said.
I am no longer an MCU source. I’m just a distant executive producer of Sam Raimi’s (awesome) Doctor Strange sequel – a choice I made and am very happy with.
I’m now creating The Black Phone by @ joe_hill for @UniversalPics and @blumhouse, adapted by me and @Massawyrm. 🤘🏻👁🤘🏻

The director also praised the choice of Sam Raimi (‘Spider-Man’) to replace him in the direction.
“I have worked with Sam Raimi before. One of the nicest people I’ve ever met in the film industry. As a director, he’s a true living legend. What a great choice to lead Doctor Strange, ”he said.
I worked with Sam Raimi. One of the nicest people I have known in the world of cinema and as a director, a true living legend. What a great choice to pick up Doctor Strange.

Several fans are asking for Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man to make an appearance. For those who don’t remember, Raimi was responsible for the first film adaptation of ‘Spider-Man’ in theaters (2002-2007).
Since the plot of ‘Doctor Strange 2’ will delve into alternate realities, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring the character in for a brief participation.
Benedict Cumberbatch will return as the protagonist, meeting Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch. Benedict Wong and Tilda Swinton are also returning.
In an interview with the New York Film Academy, Kevin Feige, Creative Director of Marvel Studios, revealed that “ Doctor Strange in the Mad Multiverse ” will be scary.
“Multiverso da Madcura is one of the best titles ever. I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s a horror movie, but it will have a lot of scary footage in it. I mean, there are some tense scenes in “Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark Raiders” that made me cover my eyes as a kid, like the melting faces scene.
He adds, “It will be fun. It’s fun to be scared in a way. It won’t be creepy in a tortuous way, but really terrifying. Scott Derrickson is very good at it! Scary can be a great emotion.
The premiere of “ Doctor Strange in Multiveso da Loucura ” is scheduled for March 24, 2022.
