Doctor Strange returns to screen in 2021 Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness but Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme will have a new face behind the camera when his next adventures begin production.
Doctor The strange director Scott Derrickson surprised almost everyone with the announcement on January 9 that he Multiverse of Madness would be leaving Marvel Studios for "creative differences". His exit occurs just a few months before cameras were expected to roll onto the film, which raises many questions about the circumstances behind his sudden exit and what this could mean for the character's highly anticipated second solo.
Though Derrickson's exit will certainly be when Marvel Cinematic Universe fans think about what could happen in the coming years, a big question remains about one of the studio's biggest upcoming projects: Who Will Find Marvel to Derrickson? replace?
Looking back at Marvel's directions from the past, What We Know About Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness these five filmmakers seem to be able to cast exactly the kind of spell that continues from Doctor Strange required.
Joe Cornish [1
9659006] Joe Cornish, who often works with Edgar Wright, wrote the screenplay for Ant-Man with Wright before he left the film when the Marvel Cinematic Universe was still around was in its infancy. Even though there may still be bad blood there, Cornish's fit for a film like Multiverse of Madness cannot be denied.
His first feature was the underestimated science fiction horror film Attack the Block (with future Star Wars actor John Boyega and future Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker) and his latest project was the underestimated fantasy adventure The Kid Who Be King . In both films, his talent for the mixture of humor, horror elements and imaginative action sequences was brought to the fore as well as for his ability to get the best out of his talented actors.
Like many of the directors Marvel has chosen over the years, Cornish is not a well-known name in his career at this point, although he has made several well-known films as a director and as an author. Multiverse of Madness could easily become a project that changes this to a great extent.
If Marvel wants to follow the same path as Multiverse of Madness Derrickson made such an inspired choice (and proved to be one) that horror filmmaker Gary Dauberman proved himself more than appropriate Successor behind the camera feels. After writing and co-writing a long list of well-received horror films, including It (and It: Chapter Two ), the Annabelle films and The nun Dauberman made his directorial debut in 2019 with Annabelle Comes Home – a well-reviewed episode of the demonic doll series, which earned him quite a bit of praise from the horror fans.
If Dauberman's resume sounds familiar, it is because he has a lot with Derrickson's own profile in front of Dr. Strange has to do. Both directors cut their teeth in the horror genre, as a writer, then as directors, and when Marvel tries to repeat the success of Doctor Strange and what Derrickson got him to do, Dauberman seems one obvious choice to be. His involvement would make Derrickson's proclamation that it was Marvel's first horror film more plausible given its affinity for dark, horrible films.
It seems unlikely that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Godzilla director Gareth Edwards would have the opportunity to jump into a project like Multiverse of Madness got on, but strange things have happened in Hollywood and it's hard to ignore how perfect he would be behind the camera. He has only made three feature films, but they have all been hit in one way or another. There was the capricious, creaturely cross-country travelogue of the monsters of 2010 then the tremendous, exciting spectacle of the Godzilla of 2014 and finally the war that expanded the franchise drama of 2016 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story .
These projects not only demonstrate his ability to switch between genres and find ways to surprise us, but they – particularly Rogue One – suggest that he can work within the structure of an established franchise. Few movie stories are as tightly controlled as Star Wars, but the MCU could be less than a second later. Edwards is already familiar with the Disney environment, and Multiverse of Madness could be an enticing opportunity for him to test the possibilities of telling another universe.
Warner Bros. Pictures & # 39; first choice for director Wonder Woman Michelle MacLaren finally left the film because… waiting for… creative differences with the studio existed. The reason for her farewell was said to be plans for the project, which were far more extensive than what the studio had envisioned for the character's solo debut. This kind of epic vision would be at home in a movie like Multiverse of Madness which promises to blow up the MCU and would likely give MacLaren the freedom to grow as big as storylines in general aren't. & # 39; unable to be.
MacLaren has made a name for herself as a director in Westworld Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead and even won two Primetime Emmy Awards for her work on Breaking Bad . She has long been out of date for a big budget film in which she shows off her remarkable talent as a filmmaker, and Multiverse of Madness seems to be exactly the kind of film she can throw out of the park ,
Vincenzo Natali first attracted attention with his innovative (and memorable) science fiction horror film from 1997 Cube and continued his research into the dark potential of science and technology Projects like that from 2009. Splice and episodes of Orphan Black and Westworld . In the aftermath of Hannibal which he directed, and in the recent past Stephen King and Joe Hill In the Tall Grass brought him to Netflix, he has a knack for our collective Tapping into discomfort with the darker side of humanity – and incredibly troubling – feature length adaptation.
All of this just shows that Natali could be an inspired choice if Marvel wants to go all-in with creepy horror spiced by modern science fiction and supernatural horror, the director's chair on Multiverse of Madness . Natali is already a well-known director among fans of arthouse and festival genre films, so Marvel could make a considerable living by giving him the reins (or as much of the reins as they allow) for a project like Multiverse gives of Madness and its dark, surreal aesthetics could be just the right ingredient to make the film special in the MCU.
