'Doctor Strange' Director Scott Derrickson Talks Dan Harmon's Contribution to the Film

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Marvel President Kevin Feige brought over Rick & Morty creator Dan Harmon to help director Scott Derrickson's mind-bending Doctor Strange prior to reshoots. His input, they said, was invaluable to an early cut of the film, but not everything stayed in.

"He came in, saw a cut of the movie, and had a really striking analysis. Because he hadn’t read any of the scripts and didn’t know the Doctor Strange mythology and I’m not sure how much of a comic book fan he was. But he saw the movie, loved it, and had some breakdown things that were very helpful. That alone was probably his biggest contribution," Derrickson said in an interview with Moviefone.

"There are some jokes that might have stayed in there, but for the most part, the scenes were a little too out in Dan Harmon-land, even for Doctor Strange. But I really love the guy and I really think he made a significant contribution in the process. He was the voice we needed to hear at the time, and I will always be thankful and watch anything he does. He’s a brilliant dude."
