According to Variety, Scott Derrickson is directing Doctor Strange for Marvel Studios! This is an awesome choice because, judging by some of the films that he has directed, like Sinister, Hellraiser: Inferno and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, to name a few, show that he has a grasp of the strange and unusual.
A quality that’s a must for a character like Doctor Strange.
Another thing that’s worth mentioning is that the only type of humor that I have seen in his movies is primarily of the gallows type, so it will (probably) be tonally different than anything else from from Marvel so far.
It could also potentially be a way to introduce characters like Blade and Ghost Rider to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.
