‘Doctor Strange 2’ loses Scott Derrickson over creative differences. This fucking sucks, dudes.
Man! What the fuck, universe. I’ve spent the last few weeks lauding Marvel Studios for (largely) letting its directors do their thing. Now, Doctor Strange 2 has lost Scott Derrickson over creative differences.
The studio confirmed his departure in a statement, attributing it to “creative differences.” Derrickson, who oversaw the first “Doctor Strange,” will remain as an executive producer.
“Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences,” Marvel said in a statement to Variety. “We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.”
Derrickson also said the decision was mutual.
“Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on ‘Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences,” Derrickson tweeted. “I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP.”
