Marvel’s Doctor Strange hit theaters around the world already before the United States, dazzling with $86 million in its debut. Now Scott Derrickson, who directed the movie, already talking about a sequel and using an icon villain from the comics.
“I really like the character of Nightmare and the concept that the Nightmare Realm is a dimension,” Derrickson explained according to IGN. “That’s early – that’s like the first Strange tale. I think that’s in the introductory episode of Doctor Strange, and I always loved that.”
Nightmare first appeared in Strange Tales #110, published in July of 1963. The character is an evil ruler of a Dream Dimension. Strange encountered the villain after a murder and ridding of his nightly terrors. This would be a very interesting character to introduce in the Marvel Universe.
Derrickson didn’t want to use him in the first movie since it was a complex idea to introduce. But he’s aiming to launch him in the sequel. Either way check out the trailer of Doctor Strange as it launches this Friday.
