    Raimi has been willing to do an MCU film for some time since back he in 2015, he said this in an interview:

    So who will Bruce be playing?
    I'm guessing Strange's old surgical mentor or something


    although, he did talk some s**t on the MCU/superhero movies in general, that could be an issue

    Raimi is ideal casting. If anything, it should have been him from the very beginning.

    How about Kristen Dunst as Clea and Rosemary Harris as Agatha Harkness?

    He could be an actor playing Dr Strange in the film, or maybe an alternate universe version of Strange.

    Raimi isn't playing Strange. :huh:

    I love the idea of Rosemary as Agatha but you know what would be an amazing thing to see? Dunst as Nightmare!

    I can't see this not getting delayed if it's being re-written and Raimi is really on-board.

    With a new director in charge, the script revisions are not unusual at all.

    It won't really make its initial 2021 release date. And Shang Chi is definitely going to be moved to May.

    I guess by hiring Raimi they didn't want someone who would just fill the spot while everything else was in place, almost becoming a token director.

    Raimi seems to be the most high profile director they've had for years. Certainly a bigger name than many others were at the time when first signed on like Jon Watts, Scott Derrickson, Alan Taylor, James Gunn, Chloe Zao or even the Russo Brothers.

    Great to hear. Glad he got the opportunity, and on a project so suited to him.

    Yeah, Raimi is the opposite of a token director. This is a massive coup for the MCU. I’ll be very surprised if Strange 2 doesn’t knock it out of the park now. I’m expecting massive improvement over the first film. I hope Raimi likes what he saw in IW and builds on that version of Strange.

    I just hope we don't get a Spider-Man 3 or Spider-Man 4 situation here that
    a. He didn't live up to expectations
    b. He Couldn't make up his mind that it was taking too long and hr eventually left the project

    I'm already predicting that this would be moved to 2022, which is crazy, because its going to be six years after the 1st movie is released. And a 2023 release would just be too long imo.

    I'm even more excited now considering Sam will have the opportunity to develop this idea from the start. It does seem likely the release date will change. Cargill may have let the cat out of the bag on that news.

    No point rushing it. Let the man make his masterpiece in his own time.

    Disney will never give up the No.1 spot in May for a movie with not much starpower and which might be not successful like the others, which is Shang Chi (which I‘m personally looking forward to)
    There are 2 scenarios:
    Strange being fasttracked and putting a lot of money and manpower in it
    or Love & Thunder being fastracked and switched to May, because it seems odd, that we‘re getting a lot news for it right now. The only thing is Taikas rugby-movie happening right now.

    But Shang Chi in May: no way!

    That was my guess as well, but probably WandaVision refers to the events on Eternals and also: it’s the biggest movie for Disney before Christmas, in a year without Starwars and Avatar, - they don‘t wanna loose that slot as well

    If writers can break a story for a TV show or a series of episodes, then surely they should be able to do this for Dr Strange to remain on schedule. Marvel employ many TV show storytelling techniques anyway. As long as it's not Edgar Wright working on the script, then a team of writers ought to be able to fast track it.

    Reports are kinda all over the place as to what Waldron is being asked to do for the script. I've seen a couple websites/social media posters saying he's doing a massive reworking, another handful that were saying he's doing some basic script polishing, and others saying it's a complete redo. The main constants seem to be that Derrickson wasn't happy with the script and Marvel has refused to change the schedule production schedule and release date. Still not sure why Marvel decided to go with such an untested screenwriter for this project instead of going with the original writing team from the first film.
