It seems that everyone is involved in the new Doctor Strange enjoyed their time with Raimi, including writer Michael Waldron. Waldron recently had a conversation with ComicBook.com and talked about working with the iconic director.
“It was no surprise that Sam was a delight, but I had the time of my life. Sam has become one of my dearest friends and my mentor. I think, again, I was not surprised at how much I learned about directing “I learned everything. It felt like everything there was to learn from him, in the course of this, and so I had so much fun. For a movie that was so hard, so great, it shouldn’t have been as much fun as it was, but we had so much fun the whole time,” Waldron said.
