After Scott Derickson and Marvel parted ways on the Dr. Strange sequel, they've been looking for another director to takeover.
While doing an interview with ComingSoon about his new Quibi series, Sam Raimi seemed to confirm that he will be directing the sequel.
"I loved Doctor Strange as a kid, but he was always after Spider-Man and Batman for me, he was probably at number five for me of great comic book characters. He was so original, but when we had that [reference to Doctor Strange] in Spider-Man 2 I had no idea that we would ever be making a Doctor Strange movie, so it was really funny to me that coincidentally that line was in the movie. I gotta say I wish we had the foresight to know that I was going to be involved in the project.”
