Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – Marvel Cinematic Universe: Scott Derrickson finally signed on to return in December of 2018, but his involvement with the film ended in early January of 2019 when he departed the production, citing “creative differences.” Benedict Cumberbatch returns as the Sorcerer Supreme with Elizabeth Olsen joining him as the Scarlet Witch in what Derrickson originally called “the first scary MCU movie” though some believe Marvel’s unease with that mission statement led to his departure. Raimi’s bona fides as a horror director suggest the film may still have some scares, but the script is being reworked by Loki head writer Michael Waldron and may yet conform to the Marvel house style.
