We have had to wait a few months, but it has finally been confirmed that Sam Raimi will direct the film “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”. It was an open secret, and something that was already taken for granted, but we still had no official confirmation from the studio. The filmmaker was ahead of everyone.
During a promotional interview for his series “50 States of Fright”, they have asked him about it, and without hesitation, Sam Raimi has spoken openly on the subject, also remembering reference to that scene from “Spider-Man 2”, which is part of the trilogy of Spider-Man movies that Raimi directed, in which a reference to Doctor Strange is made.
I loved Doctor Strange as a kid, but he was always behind Spider-Man and Batman for me, he was probably at number five for me of the great comic book characters …
It was so original, but when we had that moment in Spider-Man 2, I had no idea that we were going to do a Doctor Strange movie, so I thought it was really funny that that line happened to be in the movie. I must say that I wish we had the foresight to know that I will be involved in the project.
The reference is when in the Daily Bugle, Hoffman suggests names to Jameson for the new villain in the city (Doctor Octopus) and among the names says Doctor Strange, Jameson who is great, but who is already caught.
Now that Sam Raimi sounds to direct Doctor Strange 2, let’s remember that he already left us this little reference in Spider-Man 2 (2004) implying that Doctor Strange already existed in that universe at the time pic.twitter.com/vAYoUvdZNc
