DOCTOR STRANGE: Is Director Scott Derrickson Teasing Namor For The Upcoming Sequel?

A since-deleted Tweet from Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has fulled speculation that Marvel's planned sequel to the Sorcerer Supreme's solo movie could introduce Namor: The Submariner...

Last we heard, there was still some legal red tape preventing Marvel Studios from introducing Namor to The MCU, but is there a chance that situation has now changed?

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has set tongues wagging by Tweeting out an image from the cover of 2011's Fear Itself: The Deep #1, featuring the good Doctor and and The Submariner. The post was accompanied by the caption "Are You Experienced?," which seems to be a reference to the Jimi Hendrix tune.

Derrickson tends to Tweet a lot of Strange-related content so there's nothing particularly unusual about this - however, the fact that he has since deleted it may mean that there is something to all of the speculation.

What do you guys think? Is there a possibility that Namor will make his MCU debut in Doctor Strange 2, or is the director simply having some fun here? Check out the Tweets below and be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.


Doctor Strange 2 is now officially in development. Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise the role of The Sorcerer Supreme, and he'll be joined by Benedict Wong as fellow wizard, Wong. Rachael McAdams is also "likely" to return as Strange's love interest, who really didn't get a whole lot to do in the first film.
