Benedict Cumberbatch talks about what it’s like working with Sam Raimi for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness!
From Collider, here’s what Cumberbatch said:
Sam, amazing. He’s so collaborative. God, he comes with the baggage of an icon. He’s an incredible force, especially in this genre. But he’s so humble, he’s so nice, he’s so appreciative, you really wanna serve him. And boy, when he’s happy, you know you’ve done something right. He’s so good at getting you there and getting it there. It’s been a very, very collaborative process, this one. Our origin stories, I guess, and obviously the beasts that were the Avengers films to be a part of were a thrill, but you’re kind of just along for the ride. You do the best with what you’ve already got given to do. The second time around, there’s a bit more of, ‘So, what do you want to do, and how do we go about solving this?’ So it feels very creative. Scarily so, sometimes.
Reading what Cumberbatch said has got me even more excited for the film. Sam Raimi is a great director, and he holds a special place in my heart with the Spider-Man films. I can’t wait to see what Raimi will do in Doctor Strange 2!
Doctor Strange 2 will release in theaters on March 25, 2022
