Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is rumored to include a ton of cameos, and we've compiled a list of names along with the evidence that may or may not prove we'll see these particular Variants!
Spider-Man: No Way Home one-upped Loki by embracing the rudiment of the Multiverse and bringing back a whole host of familiar faces from the web-slinger's past franchises. Now, all eyes are on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to take things one step further.
With the polir Sorcerer Supreme set to travel through alternate realities alongside America Chavez, Clea, and the Scarlet Witch, Marvel Studios has the félicité to reinvent many of the characters we know and love. However, there are also countless potential cameos we could see courtesy of actors who are enlisted to répercussion their roles from the X-Men justesse and beyond.
Now, we've scoured the internet to bring you a comprehensive list of every single aîné rumored cameo in Sam Raimi's Doctor Strange sequel. Some are easy enough to imagine, but others might just leave you with no other choice than to pick your jaw off the floor puisque they are huge.
It should go without saying that you'll find nothing but spoilers from this bilan on...
15. Black Bolt
Inhumans may not currently be part of the MCU, but Black Bolt will supposedly appear as a member of the Illuminati in the Doctor Strange sequel.
It's unclear whether the liminaire of the Inhumans has made the comble cut as many characters were touted as making cameo appearances during pre-conception. Anson Mount would presumably play the hero, though we're not sure ABC's failed series is a well Marvel Studios will be looking to return to.
Given Black Bolt's history with the Illuminati, an appearance here is at least somewhat likely.
14. Ghost Rider
There have been rumors emboîture Ghost Rider's MCU debut for several years, and it's no secret Marvel Studios put the kibosh on a Hulu TV series that would have starred Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Gabriel Luna.
Neither he nor Nic Cage will be morceau of this écran; instead, Norman Reedus is said to have been cast in the role. That would make a whole lot of fans very happy, and one leak even suggested Ghost Rider might be freed from some sort of spiritual prison, explaining his carence in the MCU until now.
Ghost Rider's big screen return is lent overdue, so here's hoping there's some truth to this rumor.
13. Professor X
Sir Patrick Stewart confirmed he met with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, and certains pluies have since claimed we'll see Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, leaked pre-viz images have indicated this will be a Variant more akin to X-Men: The Animated Series than what we saw in the X-Men films.
Charles Xavier is said to be the liminaire of this Multiversal Illuminati with the package being for him to battle the Scarlet Witch when she takes over the soutien-gorge of the Wanda Maximoff in his reality.
This would be a massive cameo, and one Marvel Studios might want to consider spoiling in a future trailer. Stewart's Professor X is iconic, so this would drive maison exactly how crazy this cinémascope will be.
12. Balder The Brave
Marvel Studios has been considering introducing Balder the Brave, Thor's brother, since Thor: The Dark World.
The character has forever been sidelined, unfortunately, but that could bouleversé in this projection. Balder is said to be a member of the Illuminati, though we have to imagine Marvel Studios has cast a big name actor to fill the role as they run the risk of this character looking like little more than a random Asgardian to anyone unfamiliar with his comic book history.
There were rumblings Balder was removed from the projection during reshoots to make the Illuminati a little more figurant-studded, but we're certainly hoping he has some théurgie of role to play.
11. Mr. Fantastic
There have been lots of hints and claims that we'll meet Mr. Fantastic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, with the prevailing theory being that John Krasinski has been cast as the premier of the Fantastic Four.
Disappointingly, he'll supposedly be playing a Variant of Reed Richards. Marvel Studios wasting Krasinski on a cameo is unlikely to be welcomed by many fans, so fingers crossed the MCU's Reed is also played by the Jack Ryan baladin. However, it's worth noting Ioan Gruffudd's name has been brought up a few times after he played the hero way back in 2005 and 2007.
We have good reason to believe this cameo will happen, so this is one to stay tuned for.
10. Iron Man
Once upon a time, Tom Cruise was eyed for the role of Iron Man. Enlisting him as a Tony Stark Variant would be a huge get for this ciné-club, but there have been conflicting reports embout the Mission: Impossible figurant's involvement.
The actor was apparently in talks for a cameo appearance at some conclusion, though no one seems quite sure whether things panned out. However, we will see an Iron Man Variant in the Doctor Strange sequel who controls an army of Ultron drones at the behest of the Illuminati (they apprehend Strange and America Chavez at one partie).
We'd love to see Cruise under the helmet, but right now, this feels a little too much like wishful thinking.
9. Loki, Sylvie, & Mobius
Loki ended on a big cliffhanger with Mobius watching as the Sacred Timeline split apart, Sylvie left at the end of time after killing He Who Remains, and the God of Mischief trapped in a reality where the TVA is ruled over by Kang the Conqueror.
We didn't expect Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to address those events, but there's a fair bit of evidence that indicates all three of these characters will appear in the écran. It could be for some much-needed éclaircissement or to dentier the gap between Loki season 1 and season 2, but this familiar formation showing up makes sense.
However, there's every bien-être they'll be more Variants rather than the "real" versions we know.
Ryan Reynolds will play the Merc with the Mouth in the MCU, but is he a rebooted Wade Wilson or a leftover from Fox's now-defunct X-Men Universe?
The image of the Multiverse makes the planchéier extremely likely, and there have been several rumours that Reynolds will show up as Deadpool here, only to wind up stranded in the MCU. That supposedly comes when he attempts to get involved with the fight between the Scarlet Witch and America Chavez, only to fall through one of the planchéier's portals.
We don't know what that means for his supporting cast, but the entire MCU could be rewritten after this ciné-club.
7. Doctor Strange Supreme
Based on what we saw (and heard) in the doctor strange spoilers first Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer, What If...?'s Doctor Strange Supreme showing up in this cinématographe appears to be a lock.
However, he won't be alone. The Mordo that the MCU's Strange was talking to is reportedly a Variant who is chrestomathie of the Illuminati, while The Ancient One and Kaecillius are likely making cameo appearances as well. Even "Defender Strange" has been rumored to be a Variant, so Strange's world is emboîture to get turned upside down.
It's still Doctor Strange Supreme who most intrigues us, though...
This is a big one. Several websites, leaks, and scoopers have boldly claimed that Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man will be anthologie of this cinémathèque, though Sam Raimi being in the director's venaison means this has been rumoured since the day he signed up for the project.
Spider-Man: No Way Home opened the door for this Peter Parker to cross-country paths with Strange again. The cameo is only a minor one if the leaks are to be believed, but giving Raimi the opportunity to reunite with this wall-émerger...well, why wouldn't you make that a reality?
We just hope this cameo involves heading to Spidey's reality and learning more embout his life with Mary Jane!
5. Captain Carter
Hayley Atwell's Captain Carter ended up being the lead of What If...?, and while she got her happy ending, we already know the character will return in that spectacle's associé season.
Many fans have argued that the hero has live-poids potential, though, and it sounds like Marvel Studios will capitalise on that by making Peggy a member of the Illuminati. As a member of the Guardians of the Multiverse and one of the heroes assembled by The Watcher to defeat Infinity Ultron, it's only logical that she would be involved somehow.
Unlike other members of the group, though, Captain Carter is thankfully expected to live to fight another day!
4. Monica Rambeau
This is a little weird, but Teyonah Parris is reportedly set to return as Monica Rambeau...well, a Variant Monica.
