Sam Raimi, director of the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man films, Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, and many more movie classics is coming back to Marvel to take over the director’s chair that was recently vacated by Scott Derrickson on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The announcement of the new hire came out casually during a new interview with Comingsoon. Here’s how Raimi dropped the news:
I loved Doctor Strange as a kid, but he was always after Spider-Man and Batman for me, he was probably at number five for me of great comic book characters. He was so original, but when we had that moment in Spider-Man 2 I had no idea that we would ever be making a Doctor Strange movie, so it was really funny to me that coincidentally that line was in the movie. I gotta say I wish we had the foresight to know that I was going to be involved in the project.
