Kevin Feige Gave Sam Raimi One Very Specific Note On Doctor Strange 2


Kevin Feige had no intention of harnessing the groundbreaking filmmaking style Sam Raimi is known for. On the contrary, the MCU chief has told Empire that he specifically told Raimi to embrace his inner Sam Raimi-ness, to the point that the director has apparently reached very, very deep into his bag of tricks.

"We want [the film] to be a Sam Raimi movie," Feige stated, adding that he told Raimi his signature style should be an integral component of the movie. "We would give notes like, 'This action is cool –- you're competing with Avengers and Spider-Man, no problem –- but don't forget the Sam Raimi parts.'"

Feige further stated, “You will see just how Sam Raimi it is, in ways that will make fans of 'Evil Dead II' very happy.” While it remains to be seen just how much of this side of Raimi makes it into the finished product, with notes like those, the sequel will be an even wilder ride than fans dared to dream.
