Marvel fans are excited to see what exactly Sam Raimi is going to bring to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. When I first heard that he was hired to direct the film, I know that he was going to bring a different and unique flavor to the MCU with his incredibly fun signature directing style.
Elizabeth Olsen will be reprising her role as Scarlet Witch in the film as the events of WandaVision will lead right into it. The Doctor Strange sequel was in production until it shut down due to the pandemic, and in a recent interview with Collider, Olsen talked about working with Sam Raimi and teased what he’s bringing to the film. She says:
“He’s an incredible person to work with. He’s just such a unique human and I just think it’s fun getting to work with someone with such specific goals. And I love his use of camera and it’s definitely a use of camera that I’m not used to at all. So I guess that might answer your question!”
I love that Raimi is going to bring his unique perspective to the film, and I have no doubt that it’s going to be filled with some crazy-ass trippy visuals. I’m super happy to hear that Marvel is letting Raimi do his thing. That’s what I was hoping they would do. The first film was insanely wild, but I can’t help but think that Raimi is going to take it to a whole new level.
Olsen went on to talk about joining the Doctor Strange sequel saying:
“We always are changing, right? Because we’re always giving notes and they are very kind to welcome opinions and thoughts, and so it’s always an evolution even while you’re filming. We definitely have a script, but when I was told I would be in it, I had no idea what it was gonna be. I just knew I was gonna be in Doctor Strange 2. And it wasn’t only until before we even went back to finish WandaVision during the pandemic that I found out what I am doing in Doctor Strange 2. But it’s kind of nice to not know! You just kind of trust everyone and then you bring your experience of the character to it and people welcome changes once you become more involved.”
While we wait for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, WandaVision is currently available for us to enjoy on Disney+.
