Scott Derrickson Wants To Make DOCTOR STRANGE 2
After a great first outing with the Sorceror Supreme, it sounds like director Scott Derrickson really wants to make Doctor Strange 2. After making over half a billion worldwide it’s only a matter of time until Marvel green lights a sequel right? Well, not exactly.
Even though the first Doctor Strange movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch was a big box office success, the biggest issue in getting a sequel is Marvel’s busy movie slate. The earliest Doctor Strange 2 could even get started on would be around 2020. That’s a freaking long time considering how quickly Marvel usually wants their sequels to be made. But that isn’t stopping Scott Derrickson from thinking about making another one:
Yeah, I very much want to do it, for sure. I love this character. I love the possibilities of the world. Making the movie was the best creative experience of my life, by far, and I love Marvel. I love those guys. I really do. They’re artists. They are egoless, and most importantly, they love the movie. They love movies more than anything. So I hope so, but there hasn’t been… I know that they’ve got their hands full right now, and this movie hasn’t even finished its run. It opens in Japan on Friday.
Derrickson has stated in the past that he considers Nightmare a personal favorite for a villain in the sequel, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he will show up. Cumberbatch reprises his role in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War which he won’t begin filming for a while yet.
