Scott Derrickson may have just shared a clue to his fans about his next project. The Doctor Strange director recently took to Twitter to share the following, and it is a bit suspicious:

So there are a few ways to read this. First is the least suspicious way. Perhaps the director just felt like sharing how he feels whenever he signs a deal and nothing else. Second, perhaps he just signed onto a film, and is sharing how he feels about having signed on. Third, perhaps he signed on to another Doctor Strange film, and is throwing out a fun clue for fans to pick apart.

It could be a bit of a stretch, but we think it’s likely the latter. Following the success of the first Doctor Strange, Derrickson seemed like one of those filmmakers that Marvel would like to work again, and in recent years, the studio has been going back for seconds with select directors. Given how well the first was received, it’s logical they’d go back to him.

The status of the MCU following Avengers 4 has been a bit cloudy. We know we’ll be getting a Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 as well as a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but what the story will entail, how it all plays into it all is still a mystery. But having another Doctor Strange story would be another way for audiences to latch onto an ever-changing universe after numerous deaths likely occur in Avengers 4, and Kevin Feige has even recently spoken to making another one.

The only question is whether or not Derrickson will actually be back. We think he will.
