Sam Raimi Says Doctor Strange 2 Has Higher Expectations Than His Spider-Man Films

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness director Sam Raimi says his next MCU movie has higher expectations than his Spider-Man trilogy.

Sam Raimi says he feels like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity has higher expectations than yours Spiderman trilogy. Raimi entered the Marvel universe before the MCU was created, launching one of the most successful superhero franchises of all time before it became an industry standard. Altogether, Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy grossed nearly $ 2.5 billion at the box office, slightly less than the amount that Avengers Endgame raised in 2019.

Raimi’s return to the Marvel world is highly anticipated, to say the least. Not only will it bring back fan-favorite character Wanda Maximoff after her extremely popular run on WandaVision, but it will also serve as a culmination of what fans unofficially call the multiverse trilogy consisting of WandaVision, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Doctor Strange: Into the Multiverse of Insanity. All of that is making Raimi feel the pressure.

Raimi admitted on the Reddit account profane movie during a promotional AMA that expectations are higher for this film than for the Spider-Man trilogy. Redditor carolinagamecomics asked Raimi what the difference was in directing a Marvel movie during the early years versus now. Raimi admits that “there were less expectations back then“, hinting at the huge churning machine behind his new film.

It’s easy to see why the expectations are higher. Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy was unrelated to one of the most successful movie franchises of all time, and the director had no obligations beyond the movie in front of him. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity it’s a completely different story. Not only will the movie connect with the bigger MCU, but it is expected to finally introduce the long-awaited multiverse and explain what that entails for the franchise. With the introduction of heroes like America Chavez and the possible appearance of Wanda’s twins Billy and Tommy, aka Wiccan and Speed, there’s a lot on the table.

There’s also Spider-Man: No Way Home to consider. That movie is rumored to open up the multiverse in another way and bring back Raimi’s pupil Tobey Maguire in his role as Peter Parker. The implications that could have for his film are unclear, but with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker teaming up with Doctor Strange in the film, the two may intersect again. However Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity plays, it’s clear there are major implications for the MCU. Fortunately, Raimi is more than capable of pulling it off.
