Finally! Horror In The Marvel Universe!



In 2016, as the MCU was continuing to dominate all things superhero, I went to go see the origin film for "Doctor Strange." It was directed by Scott Derrickson, who had some cool horror under his belt like "The Exorcism Of Emily Rose" and "Sinister." And they had mentioned that it was going to have a darker element to the traditionally jokey and colorful Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And though it did not promise on that dark vibe, it was still and enjoyable, trippy film. Still had the Marvel DNA, but had it's own identity with the elements of magic and "Inception" like effects.
So with the announcement of "Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness" and Derrickson hyping it as a darker than it's predecessor, I was instantly hooked.
Until MCU head Kevin Feige dropped Derrickson from the project, siting 'creative differences.'
There goes my MCU horror film.
So as I felt a bit let down from this decision, the announcement that 20th Century Fox (now owned by Disney) would release the collecting-dust-in-a-film-warehouse "The New Mutants," my hope for a horror Marvel film grew.
And then they released the Sony Studios trailer for "Morbius," the first film in what seems to be a planned Sony 'Spiderverse.' The trailer was indeed dark. Darker than previous Sony film "Venom," which I enjoyed but turned campy midway through.
So now I can look forward to TWO Marvel films with horror elements.
I'm totally ready for them.
