DOCTOR STRANGE Director Wants the Sequel to be a "More Visceral Experience"
We know Marvel is eventually going to make a Doctor Strange sequel, and director Scott Derrickson is already thinking about what he would like to do with it when the studio decides to move forward with it. During an interview with Den of Geek, Derrickson said:
"I love the character, I love the visual possibilities, and I know the comics so well - [the first movie is] the tip of an iceberg. There's so much progress that can be made."
I haven't seen Doctor Strange yet, but I know that there's going to be so much more of the character to explore in future films. I'm really excited about the possibilities of where Marvel will take the character with each sequel that they make.
The director also talked about the direction he would like to take the next film, and it sounds like he's looking forward to playing with the villains of Strange. He even used Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy as an example. He said:
"What made The Dark Knight so great was that the origin story of Batman had been well-told, and then it was time to bring in a villain where you really got to go deep. And not just the Joker, also Two-Face. It was a more visceral experience, I'd love to be able to do that for Doctor Strange."
Sounds to me like he's already looking to make the Doctor Strange sequel a more visceral experience with the villains he is thinking about bringing into the story. It's hard to say right now where I think the sequel could go because I haven't even seen the first movie yet, but I can't wait to see it and see where Marvel takes the franchise.
