Hit the jump to read out full Scott Derrickson Doctor Strange interview. Scott Derrickson Doctor Strange Interview I have a super specific question. Are there any Bob Dylan songs in this movie? Scott Derrickson: Oh God, I hope, I hope so. Thats my answer to everything. I hope there are Bob Dylan songs in every movie. So yeah. No, we are, were looking at specific songs and some of them classic songs. Well see which ones well get. Which ones we can afford and which ones we can get the rights to. When you come onto a movie like Doctor Strange where Marvel obviously has an idea of what they want it to be, how much development are you doing from the start? Like how much are you building this movie from the ground up compared to a film that youre doing outside of this kind of thing? Scott Derrickson: In terms of adapted material, which Ive done before a couple of times, the development process was even more from the ground up in this case. Because you have a large body of stories and material from the comics. And when I first met with them, they had certain thematic ideas they liked. And not a lot of story ideas, which was great. And I think it was my connection and interest in the thematic ideas that got me the job. And the whole process was starting with all ideas on the table. And so I was involved in it from the very get-go. How has it been so far? Has it surprised you? Scott Derrickson: Its been incredible. Its been the most incredible filmmaking experience for me by far, for a variety of reasons. The experience with Marvel, you know, I can only speak for myself. I know every director has their own stories. But my experience with Marvel has been really good. And I really enjoy the intimacy of the collaboration because its all been just myself and Kevin [Feige] and my producer Stephen [Broussard]. There are no middle men. Its that and my crew. And thats it. Theres no one else working on the movie. And thats new for me and unique for me. And the ambition of the movie, Im surprised that Im getting to make it. Because I keep feeling like these set pieces someones gonna say, its too bizarre. Its too weird. Were going too far. AndI feel as though we crossed a line at some point in the process, which the comics I think were the inspiration to try to go past certain boundaries. But we crossed a line and after crossing that line we just kept going. It all kept getting stranger and stranger not to be, I didnt mean that as a pun, but it all just kept getting more bizarre. And in a good way, in a way that as a viewer I think I would be satisfied by. Kevin said that one of the hardest nuts to crack with the movie was to figure out how to make the action believable and different because youre just sort of conjuring spells and things of this nature. Can you talk about what the actions gonna look like and how you sort of cracked that?
