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 […]
I participated in a thread on Twitter with C. Robert Cargill (co-writer of Sinister, Sinister 2 and Doctor Strange) where he was talking about The Equalizer 2 and it’s director, Antoine Fuqua (who also directed the first movie). I described Fuqua as ‘the thinking man’s Michael Bay,’ and it’s an apt comparison because if you […]
According to Comicbookmovie.com, the first trailer for Scott Derrickson’s (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister, Deliver Us From Evil) upcoming Doctor Strange will be released this Tuesday! As you can tell from Derrickson’s resume, he’s really into horror movies. And that’s a good thing because there’s always the chance that not only will Doctor Strange be scarier and weirder than […]

And since Baron Mordo is taken, there’s only one […]
The biggest problem with Scott Derrickson’s Sinister for me was that Bughuul (Bagul?) was sort of dopey, though considering that that mythical dream demon was the engine that powered the movie, that’s a pretty big hurdle to overcome. If the trailer for Sinister 2 is any indication, it appears that director Ciarán Foy (Citadel) has tackled the […]
Before I begin I think that I should acknowledge that Benedict Cumberbatch is a good actor. That being said, I don’t necessarily think that he’s a good choice for Marvel Studios upcoming Doctor Strange. For awhile Ethan Hawke was in the running–and I get the feeling that if the choice were entirely Scott Derrickson’s he’d […]
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 […]
