Color me super excited.
The director of one of the best comic books movies ever made (argue, go on!), “Spider-Man 2” is set to make his triumphant return to tight-wearing tentpole acts.
Sam Raimi is in talks to direct the “Doctor Strange” sequel, ”Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The famed filmmaker and producer, whose latest film (in a producing capacity, anyway) “The Grudge” is currently in theaters, would take over for Scott Derrickson who it was announced in January was leaving the film over “creative differences”.
“Doctor Strange”, which will again star Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme and is said to be somewhat of a scarier film than most Marvel releases, also marks a return to directing for Raimi. In recent times, Raimi has spent most of his time producing – with “Don’t Breathe” and “Crawl” but two of his company’s recent credits.
This is exciting, right!?
Cue Bruce Campbell’s cameo as Doctor Strange’s brute and blunt brother Bob Strange.
Derrickson, who directed the first “Doctor Strange”, would remain on board as an EP.
