On the Doctor Strange 2 script, Sam Raimi shared a mind

On the Doctor Strange 2 script, Sam Raimi shared a mind ...

Sam Raimi may have been credited with his first nine roles as a director, but he has largely reduced his scripting in the last three decades, with two writing and one story credit across his last 11 releases, according to Michael Waldron. When it comes to hammering Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, he admitted that he was more sympathetic than you might think.

Raimis'' important contributions to the movie on a visual, stylistic, character, and narrative level have been discovered in theaters, but Waldron admitted to Murphys Multiverse that the script would not have worked out the same way as the previous two key creative players.

Because we were so busy during a time of so much experiment, I was always trying to write through the lens of this being a Sam Raimi film. When I wrote Dead Strange and Strange, it looked exactly what I expected it to look, in a Sam-type way.

Sam writing that back to me and saying: Could we do this? and we constructing some logic scaffolding to make this really cool thing he wanted to do. That was a fantastic example of how we both fought to make this really cool thing he did. I felt so confident and could write anything because he would make it look incredible.

In the end, the collaborative process worked fairly for all parties, even if Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness often fails to fulfill its own massive ambition.
