DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS: Kevin Feige Doesn't Necessarily Consider It A Horror Film

Last time we saw Doctor Strange, he was battling it up with boatloads of Marvel heroes. So fans of his first solo film are anxious to see what he has in store for the sequel. Here's Feige's thoughts...

When Doctor Strange came out, it was the tail end of 2016. Now the sequel will be coming out in 2021, which is quite the gap in between films. Regardless, it's going to happen, and was reportedly supposed to be the MCU's first horror film. Makes sense considering Nightmare will be the main villain this time around. 

At the New York Film Academy, Marvel head Kevin Feige had this to say about it...

“Multiverse of Madness is the greatest title we’ve ever come up with, by the way, which is one thing that’s exciting about it,” Feige continued. “I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but … it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in it.”


A movie title like that can only mean more mayhem and trippy scenery for the Master of the Mystic Arts. Here's more tidbits he said on this...

“I mean, there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that I as a little kid would [cover my eyes] when their faces melted. Or Temple of Doom, of course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist,” Feige said. “These are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. They were PG and then they were like, ‘We need another [rating].’ But that’s fun. It’s fun to be scared in that way, and not a horrific, torturous way, but a way that is legitimately scary — because Scott Derrickson is quite good at that — but scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion.”
