Marvel Producer Addresses Rumored Appearances in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’
With the many rumors surrounding who could make their debut in the long-awaited sequel, a Marvel Producer addressed those rumored appearances in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The constant theme throughout Marvel’s lauded Phase Four has been the mutliverse and the MCUs acceptance and journey within alternate realities.
Loki first presented the idea, with fans getting their first exposure to variants and splicing timelines, with Spider-Man: No Way Home acting as the first MCU project to include alternate reality versions of characters that have made their way into the main timeline.
The upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to take this concept to the extreme, as Marvel’s resident sorcerer will be forced to confront the deteriorating multiverse in order to preserve the main MCU.
With the premise, many fans have speculated about just who could make their MCU debut in the film; with Spider-Man: No Way Home introducing former Spider-Man actors, it is fair to assume many fans imagine a world in which classic X-Men characters could find a similar home.
A Marvel producer recently addressed those rumored appearances in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as Richie Palmer spoke to Empire Magazine about how some speculation may be misguided.
“I’ll quote the first X-Men movie when I say, ‘Are you sure you saw what yous aw?'” Palmer first stated when asked about the potential appearance of Patrick Stewarts Professor X.
Palmer continued, “There are infinite versions of these characters, and just because you may have heard something familiar doesn’t mean it’s someone you have seen before.”
“As you saw win Spider-Man: No Way Home, some rumors ended up being true, some did not,” Palmer noted, “I would love to see Tony again, but some rumors are just rumors.”
The Marvel producer concluded by stating, “I will say that I love the Illuminati. But if we ever introduce the Illuminati in the future, it might be more MCU-driven and have some more ties to our characters in the MCU, versus just replicating what’s in the comics.”
Time will tell, but an MCU-driven Illuminati sounds like the best route for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MAdness.
