The creator of the cult horror 'Evil Dead' said, "I loved Doctor Strange as a kid, but he was always after Spider-Man and Batman for me, he was probably at number five for me of great comic book characters."
Raimi continued, "He was so original, but when we had that moment in Spider-Man 2 I had no idea that we would ever be making a Doctor Strange movie, so it was really funny to me that coincidentally that line was in the movie. "I gotta say I wish we had the foresight to know that I was going to be involved in the project."

There's yet to be an official confirmation from Marvel, but it's fair to say this looks as good a confirmation as it gets.
Raimi is most noted for his work in the Spider-Man trilogy between 2002 and 2007. He most recently directed the American fantasy adventure film 'Oz the Great and Powerful' (2013).
Meanwhile, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is slated to release on 5th November 2021.
