Sam Raimi To Direct The Sequel Of Doctor Strange


Marvel Fans should start to rejoice as reports have revealed that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be directed by Sam Raimi.

To those who don’t know Sam Raimi is literally a godfather of Comic Book adaptations. He was the first director to prove that comic book movies could be taken seriously with his Spiderman Trilogy in 2002.

He was able to induce a layer of seriousness and intensity in to the movie that made us really care about the character, a feat never achieved before on the screen. The second movie in the trilogy has been widely regarded as the best Superhero movie of all time.

As we all know the Scott Derrickson (who directed the first Doctor Strange) backed out because of creative differences but would continue as an executive producer.

This choice is more or less surprising as Marvel does not go for prolific directors like him. They take young directors with bold voices.

But is Raimi is ready, it is not shocking that Marvel wanted to get him on board. He did change the landscape of Superhero movies in a way nobody ever did. The whole reason Sony didn’t go forward with their Spiderman franchise which mind you was perfect to the T, was because Sam left the project.

If Nolan’s Batman set the tone for Arrowverse, Raimi’s Spiderman set the tone for Marvel movies. McGuire’s Spiderman was the first relatable hero we had, something every Marvel hero tries to emulate.

The movie will be very closely tied in with Wandavision, whose first look was dropped during Superbowl. Derrickson also tweeted that the series will be amazing.

Wandavision will come on Disney+ later this year, while the Doctor Strange sequel will eye a release in 2021.

Other upcoming Marvel Studios projects include Black Widow on May 1st, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in 2020, The Eternals on November 6th, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on February 12, 2021, Loki in Spring 2021, Spider-Man 3 on July 16, 2021, What If…? In Summer 2021, Hawkeye in Fall 2021, Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021, and Black Panther 2 on May 6, 2022.
