Sam Raimi may direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

In what indeed seems like a crazy parallel reality, Sam Raimi may be returning to Marvel as director of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

According to Variety, the director of one alright enough Spider-Man, one very lovely Spider-Man, and one laughable Spider-Man is quietly in talks to take over the superhero sequel.

The news comes a month after Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson left the project over—what else?—creative differences. And given Raimi’s talent at both superheroes and bonkers, dark arts horror stuff, it’s pretty solid news. Bruce Campbell’s Mephisto should at least be cool.
