Kevin Feige recently gave a talk at the New York Film Academy and shared a couple of things about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:
A character they’ve always wanted to use will be introduced:
“The next Doctor Strange film for instance features some new MCU characters that will be making their debut in that movie that you wouldn’t expect or won’t guess who it is, but we found a cool way to make it work.
Because we needed a particular, we wanted to make a particular type of movie there, and there was a character we always wanted to do something with who we think will fit really well there.”
He also clarified what horror means in terms of this particular movie:
“I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but it is as Scott Derrickson, or director, pitched it; it is, it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in it. The way when I was a kid in the 80s Spielberg did an amazing job, I mean there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that I would sit there as a little kid and do this when their faces melted, or Temple of Doom or course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist.
These are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. They were PG and then they were like we need another, but that’s fun, it’s fun to be scared in that way and not a you know horrific torturous way, but in a way that’s legitimately scary. Scott Derrickson is quite good at that, but scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion.”
According to both Jeremy Conrad and Charles Murphy Ms. Marvel has been cast. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for the official announcement.
The first trailer for The New Mutants comes out tomorrow. It will be rated PG-13.
