Who takes over the Doctor Strange mantle?

With Scott Dickenson bidding adieu to Marvel Studios months before Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is set to begin shooting. Marvel finds itself without a director once again, and they hope to get lucky as they did with Ant-Man director Peyton Reed.

The following are some of the potential Directors that could take over the Doctor Strange franchise.

Kasdan spent much of his early career making low budget movies like Zero Effect and The TV Set before transitioning into comedy movies like Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. However, in the last couple of years, Kasdan took on major superhits like Jumanji. His understanding of characters, coupled with his sense of humor could be refreshing for Marvel.
