Doctor Strange’s Benedict Cumberbatch Thinks Derrickson Should Return for Sequel

There's no exact trend when it comes to Marvel's movie directors. Some, like Thor sees a couple of changes from the original (Kenneth Branagh) the sequel (Alan Taylor), and the third one (Taika Waititi). On the other hand, there's also Guardians of the Galaxy and its upcoming sequel, both of which are directed by James Gunn.

So whether or not you can expect a solo film's sequel will have the same director. But for Doctor Strange, actor Benedict Cumberbatch has a particular director that he recommends for the sequel. And the choice is obvious: Scott Derrickson.

In an interview with Cinema Blend, Cumberbatch revealed that Derrickson had an interesting process when it came to operating the movie. Doctor Strange is a more complex movie than others, given the different treatment and special effects that have to be shot and edited at the same time.

Cumberbatch reiterated that Derrickson was double-tasking the entire time, something that Cumberbatch feels is worth giving him the director's seat for the sequel.

"He had to do it all with great skill and the results are on the screen. So yeah I think this film speaks to why Scott would be a great choice to direct it again."

That said, getting Derrickson for Doctor Strange 2 is not a bad idea either. He has already touched on a few ideas that he has for the sequel, including exploring other dimensions. Since he had already done Doctor Strange, it's not a hard thing to imagine that he will create an even better sequel.

For now, Doctor Strange is already out in on Digital, with the Blu-ray heading to retail on Feb. 28.
