I thought we knew this already, but with the coronavirus pandemic going on any small bit of news gets broadcast across the internet like it’s never been heard before. Despite cancelling convention appearances due to “filming” Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness over the last couple of months, everyone on the Internet today is acting shocked and surprised that Sam Raimi says he’s working on the movie.
That’s what he told to a roundtable conversation with journalists, and ComicBook.com grabbed this quote from him:
“I loved Doctor Strange as a kid, but he was always after Spider-Man and Batman for me, he was probably at number five for me of great comic book characters,” Raimi said. “He was so original, but when we had that moment in Spider-Man 2 I had no idea that we would ever be making a Doctor Strange movie, so it was really funny to me that coincidentally that line was in the movie. I gotta say I wish we had the foresight to know that I was going to be involved in the project.”
I’m sure once filming begins later in the year and someone gets a set photo of him filming the movie we’ll go through this all over a gain with even more confirmations that Sam Raimi is actually making the new Doctor Strange movie.
