BREAKING NEWS 10/01/20
In a somewhat shocking turn of events, Scott Derrickson has exited as director of Marvel’s Doctor Strange sequel over “creative differences” with the studio.
Derrickson will remain as an executive producer on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is expected to pair star Benedict Cumberbatch with Elizabeth Olsen‘s Scarlet Witch. Benedict Wong is also expected to return for the comic book sequel after the first film grossed nearly $680 million worldwide. Kevin Feige will serve as producer, just as he does on all Marvel movies.
“Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences. We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU,” Marvel said in a statement to Variety, which broke the news.
