Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Loses its Director

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Scott Derrickson won’t be directing Marvel StudiosDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Marvel confirmed the departure citing “creative differences.” It was a mutual decision. Derrickson will remain on as an executive producer.

In a statement to Variety, Marvel Studios said:

Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences. We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.

Derrickson also released a statement via Twitter:

Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on ‘Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences. I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP.

The film was to begin production in May and there’s not expected to be delays for shooting. A search for a replacement director is underway.

The film company has had issues when it comes to directors having multiple leave projects, or not even start, due to “creative differences.” In 2014 Edgar Wright stepped down from helming Ant-Man after years in development. Joss Whedon seems to have had a more amicable split after Avengers: Age of Ultron and Tweeted support to Wright hinting at his own negative experience which he’s talked a little about. Ava DuVernay was in talks to direct Black Panther but passed because “she couldn’t make it her own.” DuVernay is now playing in DC Comics/Warner Bros. sandbox on multiple projects.

The first Doctor Strange was released in 2016 and earned $677.7 million worldwide.

Kevin Feige Named Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer

Marvel logo

From the “House of Ideas” to the “House of Feige.”

Kevin Feige‘s influence within the Marvel world, and Disney, grows as he’s been named the company’s Chief Creative Officer. All of the company’s key creative executives across film and TV will now report to him.

In this role, Feige will be in charge of the creative direction for Marvel’s storytelling. That includes publishing, film, TV, and animation.

Dan Buckley, President of Marvel Entertainment (the comics and more) will report to Feige when it comes to creative/editorial decisions. When it comes to operations, sales, creative services, games, licensing, and events, Buckley will report to Ike Perlmutter who is Marvel’s Chairman. Joe Quesada is expected to remain as the creative lead for Marvel Entertainment and report to Buckley.

In another change, Marvel Television and Marvel Family Entertainment will move under the Marvel Studios banner which Feige runs. That change isn’t unexpected. During recent announcements at San Diego Comic-Con and D23 the television shows, which one would have expected to be under Marvel TV, showed the Marvel Studios banner. This lead to speculation that live-action storytelling as a whole was falling more under Feige’s control.

Fiege will continue to report to Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn and co-chairman Alan Berman.
