With all of the rumors surrounding ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ following the surprising cameos in the film’s teaser trailers, Marvel Studios has been busy trying to build excitement for the sequel which sees the return of Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Stephen Strange.

Marvel Studios head and architect of the MCU Kevin Feige spoke about the film in an interview with Empire magazine.

“We want it to be a Sam Raimi movie,” he said according to SyFy Wire. “We would give notes like, ‘This action is cool — you’re competing with Avengers and Spider-Man, no problem — but don’t forget the Sam Raimi parts.’ You will see just how Sam Raimi it is, in ways that will make fans of Evil Dead II very happy.”

“[Sam] said, ‘We might need four or five pre-viz and conceptual artists.’ I said, ‘Sam, we’ve got dozens. They’re all yours,'” Feige continued. “It took me back to the days where I was just watching on the Spidey movies, and him having to fight for that, while essentially defining and revolutionizing what that kind of filmmaking was at the time.”

Kevin Feige noted that the MCU is about to get “out of hand” when it comes to the multiverse, which was first teased in ‘Agents of SHIELD’ and expanded upon in ‘Loki.’

The Doctor Strange sequel is set to hit theaters on May 6, 2022, after a delay due to pandemic lockdowns. It will be directed by ‘Evil Dead’s Sam Raimi, who also helmed the Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire.

Raimi said on returning to the director’s chair after a hiatus, “I have missed directing.” He added that he felt “honored” to return to the Marvel Universe and has praised ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ which saw Maguire reprise his role as Spidey alongside Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland.

Alongside Cumberbatch, the cast includes Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams.
