new evil dead movie

A new Evil Dead movie is on the way, with a director handpicked by Sam Raimi. Lee Cronin, who helmed the very creepy Irish horror film The Hole in the Ground, is set to direct the flick, which is titled Evil Dead Now.

Sam Raimi Directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Scott Derrickson walked away from directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for Marvel Studios due to creative differences. But now, they’ve found his replacement.

Director Sam Raimi is in talks to take the helm of the Doctor Strange sequel starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme.

Morbius MCU Connection

The first trailer for Morbius arrived today, teasing a character from Marvel Comics who typically has connections to our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Since it was announced, the film has always been considered a Spider-Man spin-off like Venom, but the first footage revealed today paints a confusing picture as to whether or not this movie connects to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or if it will take place in the universe established by Venom where there seems to be no Spider-Man.
