Scott Derrickson Already Has Plans for a Doctor Strange Sequel
With a little over a week to go, Doctor Strange is living up to critics' expectations: so much so, in fact, that director Scott Derrickson is already planning a sequel! In an interview with Den of Geek, Derrickson revealed that he wants to create a Doctor Strange sequel, and even more exciting, he wants to make it in the vein of Batman: The Dark Knight.
The director said:
There hasn't been an official confirmation from Marvel yet as to whether or not Derrickson will get his dream, but if past Marvel films are any indication, then it's highly likely a sequel will happen. We already know that Doctor Strange himself will be seen again in the 2018 film Avengers: Infinity War. If his standalone film is successful as predicted, then the odds are certainly in his favor. We'll get to see his origin with the film releasing soon, and Derrickson says there's more story to be told there.
Derrickson stated: "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."
Again, there's no official confirmation yet, but Derrickson seems to have high hopes, and with good reason. We wouldn't be surprised if we got that confirmation before the movie even comes out, on November 4.
