E così dopo essere stato allontanato dalla Sony dopo il terzo Spider-Man nel 2007, Sam Raimi torna nell’universo Marvel questa volta grazie alla Disney e al Doctor Strange.
Subentrerà a Scott Derrickson e dirigerà il sequel del film sul mago capace di manipolare spazio e tempo, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
“I loved Doctor Strange as a kid, but he was always after Spider-Man and Batman for me, he was probably at number five for me of great comic book characters. He was so original, but when we had that moment in ‘Spider-Man 2’ I had no idea that we would ever be making a ‘Doctor Strange’ movie, so it was really funny to me that coincidentally that line was in the movie. I gotta say I wish we had the foresight to know that I was going to be involved in the project.”
Raimi non gira un film da Il grande e potente Oz del 2013.
Il film dovrebbe uscire il 5 novembre 2021. Purchè si cominci a girare, tuttavia…
