Doctor Strange 2 aka Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is coming soon. And today, we have some sad news as Sinister director Scott Derrickson has left the project.
Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige recently let us know that’s new Marvel movie will be “legitimately scary.”
Feige told 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 continued: “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.
