Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is reportedly set to direct a sequel starring the titular character.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Derrickson has finalized a deal with Disney, and actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong will reportedly return as well. Rachel McAdams, who played Strange’s love interest Christine Palmer, is also expected to reprise her role. This Doctor Strange sequel would be part of a Marvel Cinematic Universe phase following Avengers: Endgame.
Derrickson co-wrote the original screenplay, though a writer is not currently attached to the film, and reports indicate Marvel is in the midst of searching for one. Derrickson previously directed the horror films The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister and more.
