Doctor Strange (35).

The superhero picture has risen to dominate the box office over the last decade! With its success spilling over into both network and subscription television, Marvel has been at the head of that transformation.

While the Avengers’ core members are tried-and-true heroes like Iron Man and Captain America, they’ve toyed in the fringes with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and now they’re bringing to the big screen a figure that defines the term strange.

Before the Super Bowl 2022 on Sunday, Feb. 13, Marvel released a startling new look at “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” What appears to be an X-Men character in the new “Doctor Strange 2” trailer has Marvel fans reeling.

While fans wait with anticipation for the sequel’s surprises, the new video appears to introduce X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

The voice of Patrick Stewart’s Professor X may have been heard in the trailer, urging Benedict Cumberbatch’s sorcerer, “We should tell him the truth,” although they are not depicted.

The film will reintroduce Cumberbatch’s character for the first time since “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and will be directed by Sam Raimi.

Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), will make her appearance since she was last seen in the Disney Plus series “WandaVision.” “WandaVision” includes the X-Men-version of her brother, Pietro, played by Evan Peters, and her character is strongly related to the X-Men.

“That really sounded like Patrick Stewart, no?” asked Canyon High School student Lincoln Phillips, before adding, “THAT’S PATRICK STEWART. THAT’S PROFESSOR X. I RECOGNIZE THAT VOICE ANYWHERE.”

While it is currently unknown how Professor X will be brought to the MCU, “We are in Endgame now,” as Mr. Strange would say, it is widely thought that it will be through the Multiverse, a collection of parallel universes including both ancient and new Marvel characters.
