‘Doctor Strange 2’ Not Really A Horror Film

Even though Kevin Feige teased that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would be scary at SDCC, doesn’t mean that the film was going to be a horror film.

At the NYFA Q&A , Kevin Feige clarified on what he meant when he said that the film would be scary:

I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but it is, as Scott Derrickson, our director, has pitched it, it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in it

Feige then continues to say :

The way, when I was a kid in the 80s, Spielberg did an amazing job. I mean, there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that I as a little kid would [covers his eyes] when their faces melted. Or Temple of Doom, of course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist. These are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. It’s fun to be scared in that way, and not a horrific, torturous way, but a way that is legitimately scary, because Scott Derrickson is quite good at that, but scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion.

I’m fine with the film not being an actual horror flick. Plus, I do believe that we will get some scary and trippy stuff in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, especially when the director is Scott Derrickson. Derrickson made Sinister, The Visitation, and Deliver Us from Evil, so I know he’ll pull it off. I can’t wait for this movie to come out!
