While rumors are swirling about which actors might make a cameo in “Doctor Strange 2,” a photo of a voice actress hints that Tobey Maguire will be in attendance.
At the end of December, it was rumored that the massive reshoots of Doctor Strange 2 would be used to add cameos in Sam Raimi’s film, to ride the winning formula of Spider-Man No Way Home. Since then, not a week goes by without a new name being mentioned.
One day we talk about the presence of Tom Cruise as a variant of Tony Stark (he has long been tipped for the role), the day after the return of Robert Downey Jr., and today it’s Tobey Maguire’s turn. With one notable difference: the hallway noise doesn’t come from so-called insider scoops from dubious sources, but from a photo seen on Instagram.
“Good things” arrive, says voice actress Mariana Torres, who lends her voice to Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in the Portuguese versions of Marvel films. At his side is Manolo Rey, who notably doubles… Tobey Maguire. Including in Spider-Man No Way Home.
From there to think that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be the scene of the superheroic reunion between Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, fifteen years after the end of their trilogy on Spider-Man, there is only one not that this photo, posted in story, may allow you to cross. Unless…
Note, on the picture, the presence of the “X” accompanied by the words “Mutante e orgulhoso”. That is “Mutant and Proud” in French, the motto of the X-Men. Whose arrival in the MCU has been planned since the takeover of Fox by Disney, without a concrete project having yet been announced. But the name of James Marsden is also in the voxography of Manolo Rey.
It could therefore be that it is not Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man, but James Marsden’s Cyclops who appears in Doctor Strange 2. And that the film allows, via the character of Scarlet Witch (daughter of Magneto in the comic books) and the concept of the multiverse, to introduce mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unless it is, quite simply, a false lead and a chance encounter. Verdict on May 4 in French cinemas.
