‘DOCTOR STRANGE’ DIRECTOR HINTS AT SEQUEL!
Scott Derrickson has posted this picture of Doctor Strange on Instagram with the tagline “see you in September” possibly hinting that the ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel will begin filming in September?
DOCTOR STRANGE DIRECTOR POSTS CRYPTIC PICTURE AND QUOTE!
“Not my will, but thine be done” is a quote from the Bible, essentially meaning “I don’t really wanna do this, but if I must, and this has to happen, then so be it” (my interpretation at least).
That quote, along with a picture of Doctor Strange praying, and the mention of something happening in September… what could it mean? Seeing as though no other Marvel associate has mentioned anything regarding September, it looks as though the announcement will soley be Doctor Strange related, which leads me to believe that it could possibly be a sequel announcement… but what’s so important about waiting ‘til September?
This could also be nothing. Perhaps he’s simply taking a break from social media until September (considering the recent James Gunn stuff) seeing as though he said “see you in Sept”. He doesn’t want to abandon social media, but maybe he feels like he has to. So it’s either that, or something to do with Doctor Strange’s future in the MCU. What do you think?

Legend Steve Ditko, best known for Co-Creating Doctor Strange and Spider-Man, passed away at age 90
Without Steve, we wouldn’t be rife with the spectacular comics we have today. With films like Doctor Strange and Spider-Man Homecoming in the MCU, both Directors (Scott Derrickson and John Watts) have individually paid their respects, reflecting on the legend, essentially saying that their films were love letters to Steve’s incredible artwork and panels. Movies aside, his artwork was unique, unparallelled and with the psychedelic surrealism of Doctor Strange’s comics in particular, he was ahead of the curve for sure, pioneering comics for years.
People like Steve have changed and influenced lives like my own. I live and breathe comics (and the movies he influenced), so to hear of his passing is certainly saddening, but the best we can do is pay our respects and remember the abundance of creations he had a hand at bringing to life. We can all make sure his talents are remembered. He created the unforgettable; so let’s keep it that way ❤
Stephen J. Ditko
November 2nd 1927 – July 28th 2018
Legendary comic-book artist Steve Ditko has passed away aged 90. He co-created Spider-man and Doctor Strange and has drawn iconic artwork for countless Marvel characters from Hulk, to Thor, to Iron Man, to the Fantastic Four! RIP
