Spider-Man creator Sam Raimi returns to Marvel. According to the publication The Hollywood Reporter, the director is in talks to participate in the creation of the film “Doctor Strange 2”, which continues the story of a member of the Avengers team.
Note that the studio was forced to search for a new director after Scott Derrickson left this post in January 2020, shooting the first film. “Doctor Strange 2” will once again introduce the British actor Benedict Cumberbatch as the Supreme Sorcerer.
It is expected that this will be the first truly scary film of the studio, which will plotly be associated with the series “Wanda Vision.” In the future, the Scarlet Witch will become one of the key characters in the sequel, the release of which is scheduled for May 7, 2021. Filming should start in May 2020.
Recall that the trilogy of Spider-Man, which was shot by Sam Raimi, earned more than $ 2.5 billion at the world box office, setting a number of records of his time.
Reimi also acted as a director and producer of several popular film projects in the genre of horror, including The Evil Dead, Man of Darkness, Ash Against The Evil Dead.
