Director Sam Raimi is reportedly in talks to helm Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, the sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange. If Raimi signs on, he’ll have to get up to speed as production is set to begin in May.
Raimi would replace original director Scott Derrickson who left the project earlier this year due to creative differences. Derrickson will stay on as executive producer.
Raimi’s film credits include the ’00s Spider-Man trilogy, the Evil Dead franchise, and Drag Me To Hell.
Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as Doctor Strange, and expected to return are Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is set to release May 7, 2021. It hasn’t been reported if there will be any dance scenes added yet.
