    It's a reunion that has fans reeling with anticipation! Director Sam Raimi is stepping back into the superhero realm with "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," 20 years after collaborating with Marvel's Kevin Feige on 2002's "Spider-Man." As reported by CNET, Feige shares his excitement, stating, "It's surreal. I was a young producer who just felt lucky to be in the same room with him. And I'm now an old producer that just feels lucky to be in the same room with him."

    A Spider-Man to Strange JourneyAfter successfully spinning the web with the first three Spidey movies, Raimi took a hiatus from caped crusaders just as Iron Man kick-started the MCU. Now, he's back and embracing the technological advances that have made superhero filmmaking "a lot easier." Sam Raimi even attributes Zoom as an unexpected hero in the production process, quipping, "The technological difference that really enabled me to work on this movie so effectively was Zoom."

    A Twisted Mirror of Multiversal MagicThe Multiverse of Madness allows Raimi to dip into some of his old horror movie bag of tricks, dating back to his start with "The Evil Dead" in 1981. The director enthusiastically reveals, "When Kevin announced that this movie would be… Marvel putting their toe into the world of horror, I was thrilled that he called me to come in. I was able to take those horror films that I made in my youth and apply [that stuff] in the spooky sequences in this film."

    Navigating the multiversal intricacies, Raimi praises his stars like Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, and Benedict Wong for their deep understanding of their characters, allowing them to explore altered versions of themselves. "These actors are so good they know they just have to change the slightest aspect of their character's personality to make an interesting conflict with their altered selves."

    From Zoom to horror filmmaking, Sam Raimi's return to the superhero scene is nothing short of electrifying. Whether you're an MCU fanatic or a fan of Raimi's horror classics, "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" promises to be a surreal and spooky ride through the realms of the multiverse.
