While Marvel Studios seems scared of producing the MCU’s first horror film, Sam Raimi still appears to be the man for the job. Accustomed to large productions and therefore to collaborating with studios, the director would then have some useful knowledge in terms of artistic direction and negotiations with the production. Not to mention the fact that he would reconnect with the universe of superheroes he loved so much. If the writing team recently acquired the writer of the series Loki, their collaboration could also prove beneficial for the project. Having all the cards in hand to realize Doctor Strange 2, Sam Raimi appears to be the ideal director to succeed Scott Derrickson.
