There has been a lot of updates from Disney and Marvel this week, and the latest is that we have a new director for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Sam Raimi is now slated to direct the movie. This seems like the perfect fit because Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been described as the first horror movie for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well sort of. It won't be full blown horror, but it is said to be the first scary movie in the MCU.

Raimi was part of the first big boom of comic book super hero movies, directing the first 3 Spider-Man movies with Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. Raimi is also the man behind such horror movies as The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness, and Drag Me to Hell.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is scheduled to be released on May 7th, 2021.
