Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness script supervisor Jo Beckett has called the upcoming Marvel film dark.
Officially announced during 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con, the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness film had its share of production problems that most movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe tend to avoid. The first film’s director, Scott Derrickson left the film following creative differences with Marvel Studios and replaced by Spider-Man director Sam Raimi. Details on what the film will be about beyond rumors and speculation, however, are difficult to come by.
Elizabeth Olson has called the film bonkers and Mads Mikkelson may be returning as Kaecilius for the sequel. Beyond this, all we know for sure is that the film is said to feature horror elements but it has been unclear how far the upcoming film will take this. If the film’s script supervisor is to be believed the entire film could very well be a dark one.
Earlier this year, production for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness wrapped up. To celebrate, script supervisor Jo Beckett posted a photo with director Sam Raimi in celebration. Interestingly, in one of his responses to the comments on the post, Beckett said the film was going to be dark. You can see his full Instagram post below:
