The story is all too familiar: a filmmaker tweets something that seems harmless and then it draws backlash from the social media masses. Director <a href="https://deadline.com/tag/scott-derrickson/" id="auto-tag_scott-derrickson">Scott Derrickson</a> is the latest embroiled in <a href="https://deadline.com/tag/twitter/" id="auto-tag_twitter">Twitter</a> ire as he’s been getting slammed for his remarks about film criticism. In turn, he is looking to evacuate the Twitter mothership.

Scott Derrickson has declined to carry out "extreme reshoots" on TNT's upcoming Snowpiercer series due to the new shortener's "radically different vision for the show".
Marvel Studios proved its moviemaking formula remains second to none with Doctor Strange, the media giant’s latest triumphant attempt at adapting one of its comic-book characters for the big screen. Scott Derrickson’s film was a critical and commercial ($660 million) smash, and as is so often the case with Marvel movies, Doctor Strange concludes with more than a few hints as to the future direction of its protagonist — namely, to adventure with the God of Thunder in this fall’s Thor: Ragnarok, and then to battle alongside the Avengers in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War.
‘Doctor Strange’ hits cinemas this week with our very own Benedict Cumberbatch playing Marvel’s mystical superhero, but had fates conspired against us (or in another dimension) we could have been seeing a very different movie, one with Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role. Cumberbatch very nearly missed out on being Strange because of his commitments to playing Hamlet at the Barbican in 2015, and so Marvel began shopping round for other actors to play the role. Jared Leto, Ewan McGregor, and Ryan Gosling were all linked, and talks with Joaquin Phoenix publicly collapsed in late 2014.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe being what it is, a sequel to ‘Doctor Strange’ is more likely than not, and director Scott Derrickson already has ideas. While on the promotional trail for the magical new superhero movie, Derrickson said how he wanted to follow the path taken by Christopher Nolan with his 'Dark Knight’ trilogy. Speaking to Den of Geek, Derriskon said: “What made 'The Dark Knight’ so great was that the origin story of Batman had been well-told, and then it was time to bring in a villain where you really got to go deep.
It seems Scott Derrickson went to great lengths to direct ‘Doctor Strange’. During an interview with Be Entertainment, the Marvel director revealed that he spent an obscene amount of money in order to secure his dream job of directing ‘Doctor Strange’. The Marvel director - who eventually took the helm of ‘Doctor Strange’ - wouldn’t reveal exactly how much he spent.
To be, or not to be a Marvel superhero? In the cover story of the latest issue of Empire, Cumberbatch and his director Scott Derrickson explain that the actor came close to missing out on the role due to a prior commitment in the theatre. Cumberbatch had signed on to play the lead in ‘Hamlet’ at London’s Barbican Theatre in the autumn of 2015, which would have clashed with production on the Marvel movie, initially lined up for a summer 2016 release.
‘Doctor Strange’ director Scott Derrickson has revealed that Benedict Wong’s character (called Wong as it happens) was only brought into the film after Tilda Swinton was cast as The Ancient One’. Swinton’s casting, and later appearance in the film’s trailer, provoked a 'whitewashing’ controversy stemming from the mystical character’s Asian origin and Swinton’s lack there of. “I was very happy with that [Tilda’s casting], but I was also very conscious that in doing that I was erasing a significant potential Asian role,” Derrickson told The Los Angeles Daily News.
Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’ is the next in their Phase Three movies to hit cinemas, and is set to feature at next month’s San Diego Comic-Con alongside ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′. The Doctor Stephen Strange character was conceived in 1963 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, just a year after their creation of ‘Spider-Man’, that centres on an arrogant yet brilliant neurosurgeon.
Over the weekend production on ‘Doctor Strange’ came to an end. But obviously its titular star Benedict Cumberbatch wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to the character.
Arguably one of Marvel’s most intriguing and upcoming titles is the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring ‘Doctor Strange’. Its director, Scott Derrickson, has shared a brand new on-set image, getting fans a bit giddy in the process. With anticipation high for fan fave Cumberbatch, Derrickson tweet an image of the Doctor himself, alongside Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo, which is our first proper look at the latter who is a new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A new behind-the-scenes image from ‘Doctor Strange’ has appeared online… but could this be our first look at the good doctor’s lair? Appearing on Twitter, Marvel co-President Louis D’Esposito has unveiled a fleeting glimpse of the ‘Doctor Strange’ set… and it might just give us a rather cool glimpse of a key location. Pictured alongside ‘Doctor Strange’ director Scott Derrickson and fellow Executive Producer Stephen Broussard, it looks as though Louis D’Esposito snapped a rather cool set pic.
