Sam Raimi is returning to the superhero genre and is in talks to direct "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" for Marvel Studios.
Raimi replaces original director Scott Derrickson, who Variety reported on Jan. 9 had officially departed the project due to creative differences. Derrickson will remain as an executive producer. Raimi, meanwhile, will need to get up to speed before the film’s scheduled production start date in May.
If there is an MCU film that suits Raimi then Doctor Strange is it. The outlet says that the new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will definitely have a horror vibe and will be connected to a new Disney + series that is now in production, WandaVision, which stars Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen. They also say that Olsen will appear in the new ‘Strange’ movie set to debut in the spring of 2021.
