Even though Derrickson co-wrote the 2016 Doctor Strange film with C. Robert Cargill and Jon Spaihts, the studio is currently looking for a new writer, according to the report.
Marvel, Disney and Derrickson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Benedict Cumberbatch will most likely reprise his role as Stephen Strange, a former surgeon who learned the mystic arts to become one of Marvel's most unusual superheroes.
