Patrick Stewart Finally Breaks Silence on Those ‘Doctor Strange 2’ Rumors
An iconic performer in the history of live-action adaptions of Marvel properties, Patrick Stewart finally breaks his silence on those Doctor Strange 2 Rumors.
There have been few films in the history of the vast MCU that have inspired the level of theorization and unpredictability that have come from fan speculation surrounding Marvel’s latest Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
With the multiverse first being foreshadowed in WandaVision and then being explored in both Loki and Spider-Man: No Way Home, the limitless realm of alternate realities is set to truly explode upon the Marvel Universe if the latest sequel to 2016s Doctor Strange.
The long-awaited film debuted a brand new trailer during Super Bowl Sunday that featured plenty of moments for fans to dissect, with one bringing a massive rumor forth.
In a scene that seemingly showed the MCU debut of the iconic Illuminati team, the trailer seemed to show the return of one of the most iconic Marvel characters put on the big screen, and a character who has existed in live-action form for more than 20 years.
The return of Professor X led to the majority of rumors, as it seems the character’s bald head, wheelchair, and iconic voice were all seen.
But was it really him? Well, why not ask the source? as Professor X actor Patrick Stewart finally breaks his silence on those Doctor Strange 2 Rumors.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, the actor commented on his supposed voice being used in the trailer; with him stating that it isn’t actually his voice at all.
“You know, people have been imitating my voice ever since I came on the stage 60 years ago, So, I can’t be held responsible for that.”
When speaking more on whether or not he would make a return in the upcoming sequel, Stewart stands firm on Logan being too perfect a conclusion to the character’s arc to want to return.
“Here is the problem… If we had not made Logan, then yer, I would probably be ready to get into that wheelchair one more time and be Charles Xavier, but Logan changed all that.”
We can only hope that Stewart is doing his best Andrew Garfield impression- the same actor who lied for over two years about appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home– and we can finally see Stewarts’ iconic and well-deserved debut in the MCU.
