We are just 2 weeks away from the release of Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Directed by Sam Raimi, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen/Doctor Strange, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda/Scarlet Witch and Benedict Wong and Wong. The film will finally explore the multiverse more deeply in the MCU. The makers have teased that the story has a horror touch to it. Kevin Feige, Marvel President and producer, talked about the film and Raimi.
In a video shared by Marvel called ‘A Mind-Bending Vision Featurette’, Feige says, “Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that is a dream come true. That was always where we were headed with the sequel to Doctor Strange, knowing that we wanted to explore the mind-bending, frightening side of the Multiverse.”
Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen also praise the Spider-Man director. Cumberbatch says, “Sam is such a lovely human being and obviously his standing in this industry and this genre in particular is legendary, as it should be.”
Olsen adds, “Sam has become known for this terrorizing cinema experience. He’s creating as much tension as possible for the audience, just ready for them to have that jump scare moment.”
Director Sam Raimi also talks about getting a call from Marvel and directing such an important film from MCU’s Phase 4. Sam shares, “I got a call from my agent saying that Kevin Feige and the Marvel team were looking for a director for the new Doctor Strange movie. I was a big fan of the first one. It was really intelligent and interesting. So, when that offer came in, I thought this would be a really good challenge.”
“Telling the story was such a gigantic endeavour. There’s a lot of dimensionalised visuals that we use in telling that story,” states the director.
