Doctor Strange 2 Writer Reveals The Film Will Be Scary

Doctor Strange 2’s (called Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness) writer has revealed that this upcoming Marvel movie will be scary.

This was revealed by Doctor Strange 2 and Loki’s writer, Michael Waldron in a recent interview with Friends From Work.

During the interview, they talked about how Loki and Doctor Strange 2 are going and that was when Waldron revealed that the upcoming movie was going to take Doctor Strange in a rather sinister direction.

This is rather interesting because it was revealed that Scott Derrickson left the project because he wanted to make it more of a horror film.

Marvel then got Sam Raimi to direct the film. Yes, the man who directed The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II and Drag Me To Hell.

Here’s what Michael Waldrom had to say about Doctor Strange 2 being a scarier movie than other Marvel films:

Yeah, I mean I think you know that’s obviously something that Scott Derrickson, the director of the first movie, does so well. Obviously that influence, you feel it in the first one. Even though it’s not a horror movie, there is like this sort of spookiness throughout it. It’s part of what makes that movie work so well and everything.

So when we came onto this one, we were, I felt so fortunate, the work he’d done on the first one, the work that he and the previous writer on the second one, Jade Bartlett, you know they’ve done some work on the second one, and it’s like you just dive in. In this case, COVID just gave me and Sam more time to make it our own thing. It’s cool, I’m glad that there was the chance to maybe push in a slightly scarier direction. Just because Sam does that so well.
