Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is expected to have one of the most Star-studded casts in any Marvel movie to date and that includes Avengers: Endgame.
The actions of Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: No Way Home, where he interfered with the Sacred Timeline has created a huge mess in the Multiverse. It has opened up portals to a number of Universes and the Multiverse needs corrections. This is what the sequel of Doctor Strange has centred around.
In the trailer, we saw Wong telling Doctor Strange: “You cannot control everything strange. You opened doorways between Universes, and we don’t know who or what will walk through it”
The opening of the portals to all these Universes has given Marvel the independence to bring in characters from any of its Universes into the movie ranging from the X-Men to Loki and other characters from the Marvel Comics. Thus the star cast of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is going to be epic.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Cast
Confirmed Star Cast
1. Benedict Cumberbatch – Dr Stephen Strange
Benedict Cumberbatch is set to return as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, he has some other responsibilities in the upcoming movie as well.
From what we can understand from the teaser and the trailer of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, multiple variants of the sorcerer would appear in the movie and thus, Benedict Cumberbatch will have to play the roles of all of them.
So far, we have seen MCU Strange, Defender Strange, Sinister Strange, Evil Strange and Zombie Strange in the teaser and the trailer. It won’t be surprising if some more variants of him also appear in the movie. Benedict Cumberbatch will have a tough job playing the roles of all these characters but we know how brilliant an actor he is.
2. Elizabeth Olsen – Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch
Elizabeth Olsen has been playing the role of Wanda Maximoff in the MCU since Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and she has been acing in every movie. However, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will perhaps be her most challenging Marvel project to date as she would have to play many shades of her character in this movie.
Wanda Maximoff has now transformed into Scarlet Witch and thus already has two alter egos inside her. Moreover, the TV Spot trailer showed a Zombie Wanda variant and Elizabeth Olsen will have to play all those roles. It would be interesting to see how she handles all these roles.
3. Rachel McAdams – Dr Christine Palmer
Rachel McAdams makes a return in the MCU as Dr Stephen Strange’s Love interest. She was seen in both the teaser and trailer and it looks like she is marrying someone. Weirdly, Doctor Strange is attending her marriage too.
However, we also saw a variant of Christine Palmer with Doctor Strange and America Chavez in the Utopian Parallel and in the Illuminati Headquarters as a scientist. Rachel McAdams plays those roles as well.
4. Patrick Stewart – Professor X
Patrick Stewart who played Professor X in Fox Studios’ X-Men will be making his MCU debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Although his face was not revealed in the trailer, the fans could not miss his gravel voice in which he said “We must tell him the truth” to Doctor Strange at the Illuminati Headquarters when the sorcerer was brought in for his trial.
5. Xochitl Gomez – America Chavez
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will also mark the MCU debut of America Chavez who is a very powerful character from the Marvel comics. She can create star-shaped portals to any Multiverse she wished to travel to and has many other cool powers. Mexican-American actor Xochitl Gomez will play the role of America Chavez in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
6. Benedict Wong – Wong
Benedict Wong will play the role of Sorcerer Supreme Wong in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He has been cast as the character since Doctor Strange (2016) and keeps his spot as Wong.
7. Chiwetel Ejiofor – Baron Mordo
Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mordo makes his return to the MCU in Multiverse of Madness. We last saw him in Doctor Strange (2016) when he left sorcery being fed up by the Ancient One and Strange’s ‘Desecration of Reality’.
Many theories suggest that we will be seeing an alternate version of Mordo in this movie who is the Sorcerer Supreme in his reality and has close ties with the Illuminati.
Other Confirmed Cast
- Michael Stuhlbarg – Dr. Nicodemus West
- Soo Cole – Novice Warrior
- Tony McCarthy – Police
- Topo Wresniwiro – Master Hamir
Rumoured Star Cast
1. Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool
Many fans have spotted Deadpool in one of the shattered glasses in the poster of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Moreover, some leaked VFX images from the movie that show Deadpool inside a cage in the Illuminati Headquarters have almost confirmed the appearance of Ryan Reynolds in the upcoming movie.
2. Tom Cruise – Superior Iron-Man
Rumours of Tom Cruise making his MCU debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness were being spread on the internet for some time now. The appearance of Iron Legions in the trailer has heightened those rumours and the fans are almost sure now.
3. Teyonah Parris – Monica Rambeau
Remember the glowing thing that attacked Wanda in the Illuminati headquarters? Many think that it was an alternate version of Monica Rambeau who became Captain America in her universe.
4. John Krasinski – Mister Fantastic
Fantastic 4 head Mister Fantastic a.k.a Reed Richards, who is one of the brightest minds in Marvel Comics, is set to make his MCU debut in the Multiverse of Madness according to many. He is a member of the Illuminati and fans think he was one of the members seated in the 6 chairs at the courtroom scene. John Krasinski is likely to play the role of Mister Fantastic in the Multiverse of Madness.
