It’s Super-Bowl Sunday in the United States! With that comes the usual cavalcade of exciting new trailers for upcoming blockbusters. This year is no exception with Marvel Studios dropping an official trailer for “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”. The film will be following up on the events of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” which saw Doctor Strange casting a spell that opened up the main Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to the wider Multiverse.
The trailer has Doctor Strange being plagued with nightmares of an impeding threat to come. As mentioned in our breakdown of the teaser trailer, the former Sorcerer Supreme will be joined by Wanda Maximoff the Scarlett Witch and a new hero America Chavez in his quest to save the multiverse.
The two are seen in the new trailer battling alongside Strange and he seeks to uncover the mystery behind why the reality of his world is collapsing. Midway through, we see Strange being cuffed and brought before a council for some sort of trial.
Then we hear a very, very familiar voice saying: “We should tell him the truth“. One that sounds an awful lot like Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier! Hold on a minute, though, didn’t actor Patrick Stewart state last year that he turned down the opportunity to be casted as Professor X in MCU?
The main reason the actor gave was that he felt 2017’s “Logan” was a worthy send-off for the character and he didn’t feel the need to continue. Then again…Tobey and Andrew also denied their involvement in “Spider-Man: No Way Home”. It’s very likely that Stewart was just laying down some smoke-screen to hide his big reveal in “Multivese of Madness”.

I'm gonna lose my mind if they casually introduce the whole Illuminati. pic.twitter.com/8iZptNU4mD

As of now, we’re 80% sure that Patrick Stewart will be appearing in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”. Possibly alongside other Marvel geniuses like Reed Richard from the Fantastic Four and Black Bolt as the group known as the Illuminati. Fun fact: In the comics, Doctor Strange is also a member of the Illuminati as well.
In any case, be sure to check out the trailer for “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and to give us your thoughts on it with a comment!
