Doctor Strange 2 Loses Director Due To "Creative Differences"


Scott Derrickson is stepping down as director of Marvel’s “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” Variety has learned.

The studio confirmed his departure in a statement, attributing it to “creative differences.” Derrickson, who oversaw the first “Doctor Strange,” will remain as an executive producer.

“Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences,” Marvel said in a statement to Variety. “We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.”

Derrickson also said the decision was mutual.

“Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on ‘Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences,” Derrickson tweeted. “I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP.”

The film will begin production in May and there are not expected to be any delays when it comes to shooting. The search for a replacement is currently underway.

Great, I didn't know the mutant was going to be in it.

Anyone looking forward to seeing what this one is about?

Dr. Strange is my favorite character in the MCU and it was my favorite movie in the bunch (with a grudging nod to Winter Soldier which is arguably the best of the entire set). I was/am definitely looking forward to a sequel.

Oh, yeah, and Bandersnatch Cumberbund is good too.

The sad part is that Disney has pulled this stunt multiple times and never for the better. I know writers and actors and directors can all be primadonnas but, when mostly left alone they usually do a better job than when chained to the corporate grindstone.

This guy seemed to have a pretty good sense of Dr. Strange and that world of mysticism he inhabits. This is, IMO, unfortunate news.
