Scott Derrickson in the Running for Doctor Strange 0

The shortlist of directors being considered for the Doctor Strange movie adaptation has just added another name: Scott Derrickson, who is still fresh off the praise that Sinister has received from critics.

Derrickson will be joining the previously reported directors in the running, such as Mark Andrews, Jonathan Levine, Nikolaj Arcel and Dean Israelite, with Marvel getting ready to make a decision.

It’s worth noting that given Derrickson’s horror background, one can assume that Marvel is looking to emphasize Doctor Strange’s dealings with the supernatural and the mystical, instead of going for a more sci-fi, spandex-clad fare.
