According to a recent report, Doctor Strange’s claws are coming out in the Multiverse of Madness.
Wolverine, a fan-favorite mutant and X-Men member, will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the forthcoming film, according to The Illuminerdi’s Joseph Deckelmeier. However, it’s unclear if this is a Wolverine variation or the regular MCU’s Wolverine, but Deckelmeier is certain of one thing: this Wolverine will not be Hugh Jackman. The actor portrayed Wolverine for the same amount of time as Sir Patrick Stewart’s version of Professor X, who is also thought to appear in Multiverse of Madness, although there is no evidence of this.
The Wolverine rumor is simply the most recent for the impending Multiversal film. On February 13, the official trailer for the film was unveiled during Super Bowl LVI, which had the words “We should tell him the truth” delivered by someone who sounded a lot like Stewart. The actor has been mentioned in connection with the project for some time, but he is not the only one.
After seeing the trailer, people are wondering if Multiverse of Madness would also feature the MCU premiere of Marvel Comics’ Illuminati ensemble. Strange, Professor X, Black Bolt, Mister Fantastic, Namor the Sub-Mariner, and Black Panther were the members of the team in the comics. Given that the Multiverse idea allows for variations of Marvel heroes, such as actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home, it is feasible that incarnations of these characters we have previously seen on screen may return.
Mister Fantastic is also reported for the picture, but after seeing the trailer and seeing a new poster, people feel other interpretations such as Tom Cruise as Iron Man are also a possibility for the blockbuster. Additionally, it appears that aspects of Marvel’s What If…? series on Disney+ will be adapted into live-action. The clip features a zombie-like Doctor Strange and what appears to be Strange Supreme from the series, as well as Captain Carter’s shield, which is featured on the poster.
Some fans are also sure that Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool is hidden in the poster, despite the actor’s denial. If Hugh Jackman does not reprise his role as the Merc with a Mouth and the Merc with a Mouth is not present, we may never see these two incarnations interact onscreen again, something that fans and Reynolds himself have wished for. However, the addition of Wolverine brings the MCU one step closer to the X-Men premiere that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has already foreshadowed.
