when the Marvel Studios first announcedDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ would be the first horror movie in the MCU, many fans were surprised at the idea.
To fulfill the mission, the director chosen was Sam Raimi, responsible for the franchise ‘The Demon’s Death‘, which came to replace Scott Derrickson (‘The Entity’), director of the original.
Also known for directing the ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy of Tobey Maguire, Raimi told Fandango how he explored the dark elements of the upcoming adaptation of Marvel.
“I think what Kevin Feige what I mean, from my point of view, is that this movie has a little taste of horror. I think when the original director, Scott Derricksone Kevin promoted the coming of ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ they said it would be the first superhero movie in Marvel that had elements of horror. But even after Scott left the film due to creative differences, that was still the proposal – to make the first film of the Marvel that had an element of horror. So I stayed true to the original statements.”
He continued, assuring that the movie will be scary at times.
“The movie is scary at times. It is unknown what you will find across the Multiverse. It is within this unknown that there is suspense and darkness. A tool to arouse public fear. Also, Doctor Strange in the comics has always dealt with universes and dimensions that were pretty scary, so we tried to bring some of that into this movie.”
Remembering that ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ debut in May 5, 2022 in national cinemas.
Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to face a mysterious new adversary.
