After it was announced back in early January that Scott Derrickson would be stepping aside from directing DOCTOR STRANGE INTO THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS due to creative differences with Marvel Studios, many were left to wonder who would potentially take the reigns and give the sorcerer supreme’s sequel the horror element it deserves.

Well we now have that answer as it is being reported by Variety that Sam Raimi (SPIDER-MAN, SPIDER-MAN 2 & SPIDER-MAN 3) is currently in talks to take up the directorial role. Derrickson is set to remain on as an executive producer which means that Raimi,is going to need to be caught up to speed before the film’s scheduled production start date in May.

Marvel had no comment.
