Marvel Studios has announced that Scott Derrickson will no longer helm ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' due to "creative differences".
In a statement, the director said: "Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences. I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP [executive producer]."
Marvel Studios told Variety: "Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences. We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU."
According to reports, Derrickson, who directed 'The Exorcism of Emily Rose' and 'Sinister', as well as the first 'Doctor Strange' movie in 2016, was pushing for a harder horror angle and Marvel boss Kevin Feige wasn't onboard with anything more than a PG-13 "horror" inspired project.
