Doctor Strange 2 (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) lost its director Scott Derrickson last night, and it was reported that it was due to creative differences between Derrickson and Marvel Studios. Many have speculated it was because Derrickson wanted to take the film in a more horror oriented direction, and that Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige wasn’t on board with that. Reports came out that the film would be Marvel’s first horror movie, and then more recently, a report came out that the film would have “horror elements” but not be a full-on horror film.
Whatever the case may be, fans are pretty upset over Derrickson leaving the movie – and have taken their anger out on Kevin Feige, as “Feige” is trending on Twitter.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is still on track to be released on May 7th, 2021.
