The alternate dimensions and prospects of the multiverse that we arrange with the primary movie already give limitless prospects. What I’ll say is that the purpose wouldn’t be to underutilize that, or to create one thing that was much less modern than the primary ‘Physician Unusual.’ The comics, particularly the Lee/Ditko comics, had been at all times pushing into unexpectedly bizarre locations and storylines. That has continued on into the present Physician Unusual comics, that are actually nice. So something’s attainable with Physician Unusual, I would not rule something out.”
