I’ve worked with Sam Raimi. One of the nicest people I’ve known in the film business, and as a director, a true living legend. What a great choice to take over Doctor Strange.

The tweet itself put all the doubts and further conversation to rest. The Ex-director doesn’t seem to have any grudges or sore feelings for the new Director.
According to him, his friend Sam will be even a better choice. For taking the life story of Stephen Strange further from the part 1. All within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Scott Derrickson re-tweeted about his support message for the involvement of his friend. He has been hearing rumors to the contrary, which could have inspired him to address the situation again.
There are lots of expectations from the sequel and it is highly anticipated. If the Ex-director is confident about the change, the fans should be even happier.
The title of the sequel, Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness, redirects the thoughts of the fans to be ready for higher concepts. The first part came with stunning visuals and trippy magic tricks. Now, the focus of Sam would be more on the concept of developing the multiverse.
