One of the most-anticipated MCU Phase 4 movies, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, has lost its director. Scott Derrickson, who also directed the original Doctor Strange, is stepping down and says he is leaving the role due to “creative differences.” He will stay attached to the sequel as an executive producer yet the nature or extent of the creative differences is still unknown.
“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 [executive producer],” said Derrickson.
Marvel is currently looking for a new director. Additionally, it was reported that production remains on schedule to begin in May. Derrickson commented on the news in a statement on Twitter above that reiterates the one that Marvel released.
