Marvel is looking to close a deal with Sam Raimi to direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness following Scott Derrickson’s departure from the project. Derrickson will remain an EP on the sequel.

The sequel was announced at San Diego Comic-Con last summer with Derrickson then saying that the follow-up will “be the first scary MCU film”. Well, with Evil Dead filmmaker Raimi potentially aboard, he’s your guy. The pic is scheduled for release on May 7, 2021.
