Doctor Strange co-writer C. Robert Cargill has revealed that he and director Scott Derrickson never started writing the sequel.
Doctor Strange has been in the news a lot lately for better and for worse. First director Scott Derrickson left the film due to creative differences with Marvel. It was then discovered that Spider-Man director Sam Raimi was in talks to direct the upcoming film with Loki writer Michael Waldron to help with the script. But apparently whatever they create will be completely original as Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill never started working on the first draft of a script.
Cargill has worked with Scott Derrickson in the past, having collaborated with the director on the horror film Sinister as well as Doctor Strange. Cargill departed with Scott Derrickson from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In response to all the news that was floating around about the Doctor Strange sequel, Cargill decided to clear the air on what he and Scott Derrickson had written so far:
Since it keeps coming up in news stories, it's worth noting that Scott and I never had the opportunity to write a draft of MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, so whatever they are working with now isn't derivative of our work.
I am of course very excited to see where they take Stephen next.

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team

"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy.
