Kevin Feige returns to the departure of Scott Derrickson to realize Doctor Strange 2 and the desire for the film to take us to a more frightening side of the world.
In an interview with the magazine empirepresident of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, goes back to the reason why Scott Derrickson left Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
“Marvel and I have mutually decided to drop Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences. I am grateful for my collaboration on this project which I will continue as a producer.”Then the director announced in a message posted on social media.
A month later, Marvel announced that Sam Raimi was taking over as Doctor Strange 2. Then the latter began working with Michael Waldron, the new screenwriter, and they completely reworked the script.
Kevin Feige explains that this disagreement was not about Derrickson’s desire to set a terrifying tone for the Doctor Strange sequel.
He insists that the Marvel development team, on the contrary, liked the idea, discrediting rumors that Derrickson wanted to make it.FWeird, quirky and uninhibited scary movie”, which was rejected by Marvel. In fact, it was the other unspecified differences that apparently caused the creative conflict.
Strange’s original intent was to guide us to a more terrifying side of the world.
“We love Scott, and I think Scott feels the same way. No one believed it, but it was just creative differences. Some believe that the feud between Scott and Marvel had something to do with the terrifying aspect, but that wasn’t the case. Because we love the idea. Strange’s original intent was to guide us to a more terrifying side of the world.. “
Feige went on to describe the process of hiring a director of Spider-Man to replace Derrickson. “We wanted Sam Raimi to take over, but we had little hope of accepting him. Nevertheless he agreed to meet us and from the first meeting he was excited by the idea of returning to this world.“
After the release of the trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Scott Derrickson responded to a fan who asked for his opinion on Twitter.
The trailer is awesome and of course I’m excited! I love Sam – he was the right director for this movie, just as The Black Phone was the right movie for me. Everything is okay. https://t.co/hksv0pDcPe – NOS ⋊ Ɔ I ᴚ ᴚ Ǝ ᗡ ⊥ ⊥ O Ɔ S (@scottderrickson) Feb 14, 2022
“The trailer is awesome and of course I’m excited! I love Sam – he was the right director for this movie, just like Black Phone was the right movie for me to direct. All is well.“
Black Phone, Scott Derrickson’s upcoming film, is a horror film written with Dr. Strange and co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Inspired by Joe Hill’s short story, the feature film depicts Vinnie, a 13-year-old teenager who is kidnapped by a sadistic killer. A young boy establishes a supernatural relationship with the former victims of his captor, played by Ethan Hawke. The film marks the comedian’s meeting with the director 10 years after Sinister.
