'Feige' Trending; Taking Blame For Doctor Strange 2

Kevin Feige is now trending on Twitter as fans are blaming the Marvel Studios president for the loss of director Scott Derrickson from Doctor Strange 2.

Earlier saw Scott Derrickson take to Twitter to announce his departure due to creative differences: "Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences. I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP."

Fans and yours truly alike are now speculating that the creative differences mentioned are due to Kevin Feige changing the direction and tone of Doctor Strange 2 away from Scott Derrickson's original vision, thought to be more horror-like, to something more in line with Feige's been-there-done-that approach to his MCU popcorn films.

Feige recently said that Doctor Strange 2 isn't really a horror film which is the opposite of what has been said this Summer.

"Feige" is now trending on Twitter with a current 5,327 tweets.

Check out what the fans have to say below.

Derrickson followed up his initial tweet with a response to fellow filmmaker Duncan Jones who offered in response to the news: "Wish you the best on whatever you do next mate. I know those decisions can keep a person up at nights. I'm sure its a relief to have it decided."

"Well said, sir, and thank you," Derrickson replied to Jones.

A film writer also offered: "Ugh. Sad news. Sorry, sir. Still hopeful for the movie, and I'll be there for whatever you make next."

"Thank you, my friend," Derrickson replied.

Derrickson also retweeted a tweet from C. Robert Cargill that joked: "So I guess it's safe to announce that Scott Derrickson and my next film CATS 2: THE FURRENING is being moved up and should be shooting soon."
