Yesterday we had confirmation on who will be the director for the upcoming, most likely, Phase 3 movie Doctor Strange and it will be Scott Derrickson and he has previously directed movies like Sinister and the Exorcism of Emily Rose. I originally wanted Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine to direct the movie, mostly because I loved Warm Bodies so much (top 20 of last year); but after thinking the tone of what Doctor Strange is and the type of movies that Derrickson has done I think this is a really good fit.
This is once again another unexplored sector for Marvel, this movie will incorporate more of the magical and darker tones that the universe has seen and even though I am not a big fan of horror movies, I feel that if you splash the right amount of that into Doctor Strange’s movie it can work very very well. Now the speculation begins on who will be the famous sorcerer supreme and when will the movie be released. One more thing the way that Derrickson announced his involvement with the movie was pretty great (photo above) I really liked that touch.
