Tonight, Scott Derrickson took to his socials to announce that he is sadly no longer on as director of Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness, siting “creative differences.”

This comes as a bit of a shock and a huge blow to the excitement we had for the film. Derrickson was leading the charge on making the Doctor Strange sequel a horror film, and rightfully full of horror sensibilities.

Anyone else getting those Edgar Wright – Antman vibes from this whole thing?

At the very least, Derrickson is still on as executive producer. But, that is still a major bummer considering, he would have done something for the world of Doctor Strange that would have bent the boundaries of coolness in terms of what he was bringing to the table.

Seems that the parting was an amicable one. Now, the search for a replacement director begins.

Derrickson, directed 2016’s Doctor Strange which went onto make 677.7 million at the box office. The film introduced Benedict Cumberbatch as the mystical Stephen Strange who would later on go on to join The Avengers and kind of save the day.

What do you guys think? Sad to see Derrickson parting ways with Marvel? Let us know in the comments section.

Trey grew up wedged in-between the aisles of a video store. After a Cronenbergian inspired sequence, He has officially become fused with both film and video games. He writes all things pop culture, and has accidentally kicked two sharks and lived. Give him a follow and Tweet him something not too judgy @TreyHilburn.
