Sam Raimi might be back into the superhero genre if the new reports are true.
Variety is reporting that Sam Raimi is in talks to helm Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.
Raimi is no stranger to the comicbook genre. The director is considered a pioneer to modern day superhero movies after his work with the Spiderman character.
The Sam Raimi Spider-man trilogy especially Spider-man 2 is considered one of the best comicbook adaptation.
Raining is also familiar with horror element after working on Evil Dead and others.
It will be interesting to see if he signs to direct the move after Scott Derrickson left the project due to creative differences.
After finishing his “Spider-Man” trilogy for Sony Pictures with 2007’s “Spider-Man 3,” Raimi’s output as a director slowed considerably, with just the horror pic “Drag Me to Hell” in 2009 and Disney’s “The Wizard of Oz” prequel “Oz the Great and Powerful” in 2013. Instead, he’s been busy as a producer, helping relaunch various horror franchises like “Poltergeist” and his own classic, “Evil Dead.”
