Marvel president and producer Kevin Feige has clarified the misconceptions that Doctor Strange in the Madness Multiverse is a horror movie after director Scott Derrickson described the sequel as "Marvel's first horror movie."
At the San Diego Comic-Con 2019, the director of Doctor Strange in the Madness Multiverse has promised that he will "plunge into gothic and horror." However, the president of Marvel and his senior representative has now said that there are only “some scary sequences,” inspired by Steven Spielberg.

“Madness Multiverse is the biggest title we've ever created, which is exciting, by the way,” Feige said as a guest speaker at the New York Film Academy. "I wouldn't necessarily say it's a horror movie, but it will be a great movie with some scary sequences."
Recalling his childhood in the 1980s, Feige cited classic films directed by Steven Spielberg. They are the big influence for Doctor Stranger in the Madness Multiverse.
“There are horrible scenes in The Lost Ark Hunters that made my eyes melt when I was a child. Same with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Gremlins or Poltergeist. It was the movies that invented the PG-13. It is fun to be afraid in this way, not in a torturous way, but legitimately frightening. Scott Derrickson is good at this. ”

Derrickson, whose previous work includes horror films such as Emily Rose's Exorcism, Sinister, and Deliver Us from Evil, said at Comic-Con that he didn't want to "just do one more sequel."
“If I'm going to do that, it has to go into the territory that drew me to Doctor Strange's comics, and that's how they plunged into gothic and horror. We'll make Marvel's first horror movie. ”
Doctor Stranger at Marvel's Multiverse of Madness opens in theaters on May 7, 2021.
