EXCLUSIVE: EVIL DEAD Director Fede Alvarez Addresses DOCTOR STRANGE Rumors

Earlier today, I had the chance to sit down with Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez. While he had plenty to say about the superb horror remake, the filmmaker also had this to say about those recent Doctor Strange rumours and whether he would be interested in helming a comic book movie.


Last week, it was reported that Fede Alvarez had met with Marvel Studios, possibly to discuss the long overdue big screen adaptation of Doctor Strange. I was lucky enough to be able to meet the Evil Dead director today for a brief chat (in which we talked in detail about the horror movie) and asked him directly whether there's any truth to these reports. "Yeah, I read that. That's not true. Making a Marvel movie would be something that I would really love, I'm a big fan, but we've never really discussed that project. I don't know where that came from."

We've seen plenty of denials in the past exactly like this, so keep your fingers crossed that he's being forced - by the extremely secretive Marvel - not to reveal anything. Regardless, the chance to helm a comic book movie definitely interests him. "Yeah, definitely," the director enthusiastically replied when I asked if he would like to follow in the footsteps of The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi. "Comic book movies, they have a lot of potential if you do it the right way. There's definitely a lot of fun things to do there, so we'll see. We'll see what happens in the future..."

Evil Dead is in cinemas nationwide from 18th April. Read my review by clicking HERE.
