MCU's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been through its fair share of production issues. Just a while after the film's announcement, director Scott Derrickson, who helmed the first Doctor Strange film, took to social media to reveal that he would not be involved in the sequel. Recently, Scott's latest post on social media hinted that Russian Doll's Natasha Lyonne may have featured in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness if he was still the director.

A few months ago, Scott Derrickson revealed that he would no longer be directing the second Doctor Stange film due to creative differences. Along with Scott, writer C. Robert Cargill also left the project citing creative differences. However, in his latest post on social media, Scott Derrickson revealed that he once discussed Multiverse of Madness with Russian Doll's lead star, Natasha Lyonne.

Natasha Lyonne is most known for playing the role of Nicky Nichols in Netflix's renowned show, Orange Is the New Black. April 04, 2020, happened to be Natasha Lyonne's 41st birthday. This is why Scott Derrickson took to social media to wish Natasha Lyonne and promote her latest project, Russian Doll. In the same post, Scott mentioned that he previously met Natasha Lyonne in NYC and discussed the 'multiverse' with her.

This caused many to speculate that, at one point, Natasha Lyonne was considered for a role in Doctor Stange 2. However, now that Scott Derrickson is no longer director of Multiverse of Madness, it is unlikely that Natasha Lyonne will be involved in the project. After Scott left the project, Michael Waldron was hired by the MCU to write down the new script. Moreover, according to recent reports, Sam Raimi might be the new director of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
