Talking to Entertainment website, GamesRadar+, he said that Raimi brings wealth of imagination in his films and said :
“I love Sam Raimi, so I’m very excited that he’s making the film, the second Doctor Strange. He brings to anything he does, a wealth of imagination and passion. In this genre, he’s just one of the seminal figures.I remember seeing Darkman when I was a kid. It was beyond, it’s so amazing,”
He further described how the director fits into the film. On this he was quoted as saying, I think he has an incredible mind and I think he’s really able to bring that mind into his storytelling in a really unique way, and it’s very suited to the world that’s been created by Doctor Strange, and I’m very excited to see what he does with that world.”
