Ahead of Loki’s highly-anticipated premiere on Disney+, showrunner Michael Waldron has opened up about the process of rewriting Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through the pandemic. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Waldron confirmed that following Scott Derrickson’s exit, he and director Sam Raimi had to start the sequel “from scratch.”“I knew I wanted to stay in the family,” Waldron said being enlisted onto the Doctor Strange sequel, while Loki was about to start shooting. “I felt like Loki was in a great place and I was eager for what the next challenge would be.”He continued, “How do we just make a movie in two months? [He recalls thinking]. But COVID quickly descended upon us. We’re not shooting now until November. So I got to spend my 2020 on Zooms with Sam Raimi. Not too bad.”Waldron went on to share that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was inspired by a number of films including Indiana Jones, who he thinks is somewhat similar to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange. He also continued to tease that the sequel is going to be something that fans haven’t seen before in the MCU, describing it as “very Sam Raimi,” and an “incredibly visually thrilling,” film.“He’s Indiana Jones in a cloak to me,” He said. “He’s a hero who can take a punch. That’s what made those Harrison Ford heroes so great. Those guys get their asses kicked. Look at Stephen Strange in the first movie. He’s really getting beat up but he’s very capable and everything. I can tell you that it’s a ride…very Sam Raimi. The film is incredibly visually thrilling. John Mathieson, our D.P., who shot Gladiator and Logan—I think the look of it is going to be unlike anything you’ve seen in the MCU before.”RELATED: Kevin Feige Teases Multiple Versions of Loki in the Disney+ SeriesDescribed as the first MCU horror film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as he reprises his role as Dr. Stephen Strange.
