A lot of people were excited for the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in 2021, but it looks like the movie has suffered a major setback.\r\n\r\nAccording to Variety, director Scott Derrickson has decided to step down from his role at the helm. Derrickson has apparently left because of \u201ccreative differences\u201d, but he will still be attached to the movie as an executive producer.\r\n\r\nMarvel Studios had this to say about Derrickson\u2019s exit:\r\n\r\n\u201cMarvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on \u2018Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness\u2019 due to creative differences\u2026 We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.\u201d\r\n\r\nDerrickson has also posted this tweet on his personal Twitter account:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/scottderrickson\/status\/1215428331450953728\r\n\r\nWe don\u2019t have any details as to what these creative differences are, but some are guessing that Derrickson was set to make an all-out horror movie with the sequel. Until we get any official confirmation, all we can really do now as fans is guess.\r\n\r\nFor now, Marvel isn\u2019t announcing any delay to the film, but if they\u2019re going to hire a new director, I would rather they push the film back rather than keep the original release date. If The Rise of Skywalker has taught us anything, it\u2019s that good movies take time.\r\n\r\nAs for Derrickson\u2019s replacement, no other names have been put up for consideration, but I would love to see what the Rick and Morty guys like Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have to bring to the table, seeing as to how experienced they are when it comes to writing stories around multiverses. If anything, Harmon even helped write the first movie, so he already has experience when it comes to the franchise.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=lIv7ApmpwhA\r\n\r\nDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is still set to come out May 7, 2021.
