It looks like Marvel wants Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson to return and helm the cosmic superhero movie’s sequel.

Though the trippy and mystic world of Doctor Stephen Strange posed as a difficult world to project on to the big screen, Derrickson managed to do a pretty good job with the live-action film. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme in the making, Doctor Strange not only gained commercial success – the film got a lot of good reviews from critics too.

Now, according to a report by Deadline, Derrickson is expected to return to Marvel to helm Doctor Strange 2 after working on the Lock & Keye Hulu adaptation which was just announced just recently.

Focused on the Locke & Key live-action, the article doesn’t really talk so much about the sequel except that Derrickson is to immediately reprise his role as the sequel’s director after working on the first season of the series.

The report may come as no surprise to Marvel fans – Marvel has the habit of bringing back director’s whose films have proven successful for the studio. Look at James Gunn, the director of all three Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

For now there isn’t any word on when Doctor Strange 2 will see production or when it’ll release but we’ll update everyone as soon as we find out. For now Marvel fans can be excited of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which premieres on May 5, 2017.
