Sam Raimi didn’t want Doctor Strange 2 to have zombies (at first)

And, to be fair, Raimi duly delivered, pushing the boundaries of what previous MCU movies have been able to do in terms of scares and violence. But, believe it or not, the master of the undead initially didn’t want to include zombies in his movie.

Danny Elfman on 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,' Sam Raimi, and Collaborating on 'Darkman'

[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.]Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the result of a wonderfully weird marriage between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the mind of director Sam Raimi, as it takes its titular character (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) on a wild journey where he’s forced to face past actions and decisions as well as alternate versions of himself from the multiverse. The adventure feels like a roller coaster ride looping its way through creatures, the Illuminati, a teenage girl with powers she can’t control, friends from the past, and a supernatural adversary with a very human grievance.

Sam Raimi Isn't Directing Tom Holland's Spider-Man 4: Tobey Maguire Would "Break My Neck"

Sam Raimi returns to the Marvel realm in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but the director won't take another swing at Spider-Man — at least not without Tobey Maguire. Raimi and Maguire teamed on Sony's first Spider-Man trilogy, starting with Spider-Man in 2002 and reuniting for Spider-Man 2 in 2004 and Spider-Man 3 in 2007. A Spider-Man 4, originally dated for May 2011 with Maguire and Raimi returning, was abandoned before Sony rebooted with Andrew Garfield replacing Maguire as the younger Peter Parker. It looked like the end of the Raimi-verse.
