Marvel Studios discovered themselves in a state of affairs final 12 months that was perceived as a little bit of a threat, but it surely finally paid off. Physician Unusual, a personality largely unknown to anybody outdoors of the hardcore comedian ebook studying group previous to the discharge of the film, wound up actually touchdown with critics and followers. Now, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Unusual is a beloved member of the MCU and Scott Derrickson is owed quite a lot of credit score for the film’s success. So, assuming Marvel Studios strikes forward with Physician Unusual 2, which they nearly actually will in some unspecified time in the future, it looks as if Scott Derrickson will return to the director’s chair. The one downside is, it could be some time.
The 50-year-old director just lately spoke with Leisure Weekly in anticipation of the upcoming launch of Physician Unusual on digital and DVD/Blu-ray. When requested about when Marvel might wish to get the sequel going, Scott Derrickson made it fairly clear that it will not be taking place anytime quickly, as a result of Marvel Studios already has their palms very full. Here’s what he needed to say about it.
“I don’t know the place it suits in…Proper now, I do not assume the folks at Marvel are calling anyone for something. They’re making method too many films directly proper now [to do that]. [Given] how intimately concerned they’re within the improvement and capturing and post-production of these films, they have their palms very full proper now.”
Scott Derrickson talked about earlier this week that he would like to return to direct Physician Unusual 2, ought to it will definitely be given the inexperienced mild. Given the best way that the primary film ended and contemplating what passed off within the post-credits scene, it appears very probably the film will occur in some unspecified time in the future. The director reiterated to EW that he’s thinking about doing the sequel if he’s given the prospect, however within the meantime, he’s most likely going to dip his hand into the world of dramatic tv.
“I’ve form of been off the grid. I very a lot wanted a break after that. However I am beginning to learn TV pilots. I like dramatic tv, and I’ve gotten fairly just a few good gives on actually good pilots. I could do a pilot earlier than Physician Unusual 2, if Physician Unusual 2 goes to occur.”
Physician Unusual has grossed $660 million worldwide and was just lately nominated for an Oscar within the Greatest Visible Results class. Not solely that, however the film is at present sitting at a really strong 90 % approval ranking on Rotten Tomatoes. So, it’s actually a matter of when with Physician Unusual 2, versus if. When the film occurs, Scott Derrickson has some concepts for the place it may go. Here’s what he needed to say in a separate interview with Comicbook.com
“I would not essentially rule something out. That is actually the place the comics went within the ’80s however I additionally assume that was most likely the weakest period of the comics. The alternate dimensions and potentialities of the multiverse that we arrange with the primary movie already give limitless potentialities. What I’ll say is that the aim wouldn’t be to underutilize that, or to create one thing that was much less progressive 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 potential with Physician Unusual, I would not rule something out.”
Marvel will most likely must get by means of the remainder of Part three earlier than giving Physician Unusual 2 the official inexperienced mild, however we’ll see Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Unusual a few instances earlier than then. He’ll seem in Thor: Ragnarok alongside Thor and Loki this November (which was additionally teased within the mid-credits scene in Physician Unusual), in addition to Avengers: Infinity Warfare and presumably the untitled Avengers four. Physician Unusual is ready for launch digitally on February 14 and on DVD/Blu-ray February 28.
