Original Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is leaving his position for the upcoming sequel, Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness. According to a statement from Marvel Studios, the director and studio have parted ways due to “creative differences.”

“Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences,” Marvel said in a statement to Variety. “We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.”

Derrickson will, however, remain as the sequel’s executive producer. The filmmaker confirmed the news on Twitter, writing, “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.”

Despite Derrickson’s departure, production is still scheduled to begin this May as Marvel Studios attempt to find a replacement. Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness will hit theaters May 7, 2021 as part of the MCU‘s Phase 4 and sees Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as sorcerer and former neurosurgeon Stephen Strange.
