Scott Derrickson in contention to direct Doctor Strange

Mark Andrews and Jonathan Levine also linked

Doctor Strange appears to have added a new name to its directorial shortlist, with Sinisterdirector Scott Derrickson the latest candidate to be linked to the gig.

We had previously reported that Mark Andrews, Jonathan Levine, Nikolaj Arcel and Dean Israelite were all in the running for the position, with Marvel actively looking to make an appointment in the near future.

Intriguingly, THR reporter Borys Kit has tweeted that Andrews and Levine are still in the mix, suggesting that this may now be a three-horse race between those two and Derrickson.

Derrickson’s background is largely horror-centric, although whether that indicates that Marvel is going down the macabre route for their Doctor Strange adaptation, remains to be seen.

All of this is supposition at this stage, but expect some more concrete info once Marvel gets through with its Captain America publicity push…

      Telling you man Guillermo Del Toro would be perfect for Dr Strange but I guess Marvel want to continue with giving smaller known directors a chance which isn't a bad thing.

      Sinster was great, don't mind this. Marvel have made some outstanding choices with directors and with the bizarreness of Dr Strange, this could be another inspired choice.

      More love for Sinister from me, and I'm only a horror fan every other Tuesday.
