Doctor Strange 2 (Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness) is going to make fans of Evil Dead 2 very happy, at least, according to Marvel’s President, Kevin Feige.
Here’s what Marvel’s President had to say about Evil Dead 2 fans being happy with Doctor Strange 2:
We want it to be a Sam Raimi movie. We would give notes like, ‘This action is cool – you’re competing with Avengers and Spider-Man, no problem – but don’t forget the Sam Raimi parts.’ You will see just how Sam Raimi it is, in ways that will make fans of Evil Dead II very happy.
Evil Dead 2 fans are going to love Doctor Strange 2
During the interview, Feige went on to explain how they ended up getting Sam Raimi to agree to direct Doctor Strange 2.
It sounds as though the Marvel President really wasn’t confident that he would say yes to making the movie.
Our executive producer, Eric Carroll, and Richie Palmer [producer] were calling around to see who was interested, and Sam’s agent said, ‘What about Sam Raimi?’ We thought, ‘That would be incredible, but there’s no chance of that.’ But he wanted to come in and meet. And in the first meeting, it was amazing to reconnect with him, and see his enthusiasm to jump back into this world.
Doctor Strange 2 is un film de Sam Raimi
Turns out that Raimi was looking forward to getting back behind the camera.
Before directing Doctor Strange 2, Raimi hadn’t made a movie since 2013’s Oz: The Great And Powerful.
Here’s what Raimi had to say about wanting to direct a movie again:
I have missed directing. It’s really the only thing I know how to do. I couldn’t be a stockbroker or a banker or a plumber, and I’m thrilled to be working with my old friend Kevin Feige.
