Scott Derrickson Says Marvel Is Too Busy With BLACK PANTHER And INFINITY WAR To Schedule DOCTOR STRANGE 2
Director Scott Derrickson has already stated that he has several ideas for a Doctor Strange sequel, there's just one problem - it hasn't been officially announced yet by anyone at Marvel Studios.
"I have no idea where it fits in,” he told the Entertainment Weekly. “I’ve sort of been off the grid. I very much needed a break after that. But I’m starting to read TV pilots. I love dramatic television, and I’ve gotten quite a few good offers on really good pilots. I may do a pilot before Doctor Strange 2, if Doctor Strange 2 is going to happen.”
So does the current radio silence alarm Derrickson? Not one bit. “Right now, I don’t think the people at Marvel are calling anybody for anything. They’re making way too many movies at once right now [to do that]. [Given] how intimately involved they are in the development and shooting and post-production of those movies, they’ve got their hands very full right now.”
Given their busy schedule with filming just getting underway on Black Panther (February 16, 2018) and Avengers: Infinity War (May 4, 2018) and post-production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7, 2017), and Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017) all hitting the home stretch, this might be the busiest Marvel Studios has ever been as a collective entity. Given this crazy schedule, what do you think are the chances that Phase 4 casting and creative hires will occur in time for this year's SDCC/D23 Expo?
Doctor Strange arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on February 28.
