A New Writer Enters The Multiverse Of Madness

Yesterday we learned that Sam Raimi was in the running to take over Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness from Scott Derrickson, who left the production due to ‘creative differences (a phrase that’s almost meaningless in that it could refer to virtually anything).’ Today The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Michael Waldron would be working […]

I Suspect I Know Who’s Going To Replace Scott Derrickson on Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness

Mainly because I think I have a good idea of what Marvel Studios is looking for. While Scott Derrickson is leaving the project, he’s staying on as Executive Producer, which implies an amicable parting with Marvel. Now, the title ‘Executive Producer’ is potentially as meaningless as “creative differences” but assuming that relations between the director […]

Scott Derrickson Has Left Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Derrickson has left Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. The article sites “creative differences (essentially a meaningless term)” and while it seems that that the parting was amicable (Derrickson remains as executive producer), something tells me that the reason for his leaving was his intention […]

A ‘Strange’ Case of Nonsense

A few days ago Kevin Feige confirmed that there would be a Doctor Strange sequel, which must have been a comfort to the people too clueless to not know better. The original movie earned almost $678 million–on a budget of $165 million–so if there weren’t a sequel it certainly wouldn’t be because it wasn’t profitable.Then […]

Doctor Strange – Review

“Visually, Marvel’s Doctor Strange is unlike any movie you’ve probably seen.” And that’s not hyperbole.  Some of the visual effects in Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange may have had their genesis in other movies–such as Inception–but he takes them to places that you have never seen before. Green screen is also nothing new, but the way […]

Doctor Strange International Trailer

Comicbook.com posted an international trailer for Scott Derrickson’s upcoming Doctor Strange, and you can see it here. I haven’t watched it because a movie trailer is a like a single puzzle piece, which when combined with others form a more complete image of what that movie happen to be. The problems start when you assemble those […]

You Need Faith For That To Work, Mr. Vincent!

That’s paraphrasing vampire Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon) to Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall) from Tom Holland’s 1985 Fright Night, though it fits what I think I’m seeing from Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange. It feels almost as if Kevin Feige (or his bosses at Disney, maybe) has a bit less faith in it than in prior projects. And keep […]

Doctor Strange – Trailer Into Reaction

With all the seriously positive buzz coming off of Captain America: Civil War you’d think that I would be all Marveled-out by now, but not at all because Marvel Studios also released a trailer for Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange last evening. And I really enjoyed it, so much so that I shot a reaction video […]
