After Feige revealed the title of the film, Scott Derrickson stated "If I'm gonna do it, it has to go into the territory that drew me into the Doctor Strange comics in the first place, which is how they dipped into the gothic and the horror and the horrific, and we're going to make the first scary MCU film." It was also announced that Elizabeth Olsen would be reprising her Marvel Cinematic Universe role of Wanda Maximoff in the film, as it would connect to the events in the Disney+ series WandaVision.
