Scott Derrickson’s DOCTOR STRANGE 2 Will Be “Legitimately Scary”
Doctor Strange 2 aka Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is coming soon-ish. And today, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige let us know that Sinister director Scott Derrickson’s new Marvel movie will be “legitimately scary.”
Funny enough, this interview was conducted at the film school I attended The New York Film Academy. The more you know, right?
Feige tells the NYFA: “Multiverse of Madness is the greatest title we’ve ever come up with, by the way, which is one thing that’s exciting about it. I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but … it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in it.”
He continues: “I mean, there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that I as a little kid would [cover my eyes] when their faces melted. Or Temple of Doom, of course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist. These are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. They were PG and then they were like, ‘We need another [rating].’ But that’s fun. It’s fun to be scared in that way, and not a horrific, torturous way, but a way that is legitimately scary — because Scott Derrickson is quite good at that — but scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion.”
While plot details remain under wraps, we do know that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will see the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme along with Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlett Witch.
