DOCTOR STRANGE Director Scott Derrickson Would "Absolutely" Return To MCU Despite Sequel Creative Differences

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson decided not to return for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but it sounds like he'd be open to taking the helm of a third instalment...

Horror director Scott Derrickson initially seemed to be an unexpected choice to take the helm of Doctor Strange for Marvel Studios, but the insane visuals he delivered proved a perfect way to introduce moviegoers to the Sorcerer Supreme. It was reported that the sequel would be the MCU's first "horror," but with the Multiverse clearly a new priority for Kevin Feige, plans seemingly changed. 

With that, Derrickson parted ways with Marvel Studios over apparent "creative differences," and Spider-Man filmmaker Sam Raimi took over as director of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

There are clearly no hard feelings on Derrickson's part, though, as he recently took to Twitter to confirm he'd be 100% open to working with the studio again. The fan in question asked specifically if he'd work on Doctor Strange 3, and it sounds like he would indeed be on board with returning for that movie.

If the sequel deals with the Multiverse, then a potential threequel could take Strange back to basics for a horror-inspired confrontation against Nightmare (the rumoured original plan for Doctor Strange 2). It depends on what Marvel Studios has in store for this character moving forward, but it definitely looks like Stephen Strange will undergo some major changes later this year.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to be released on May 6.
