“Doctor Strange 2” should give us a major MCU encounter between Benedict Cumberbatch and Patrick Stewart. The latter, who embodies Professor X, gives his impression of the magician.
Highly anticipated Doctor Strange 2
Like every Marvel movie, Doctor Strange 2 is highly anticipated by fans. But the feature film will have with it some stronger arguments than for example The Eternals Were Shang Chi. Namely the presence of iconic characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and not only. Indeed, we had known for a long time that Strange, still played by Benedict Cumberbatch, was going to collaborate with Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen). But the latest trailer to date mainly revealed the presence of Professor Charles Xavier. At least that is what the voice heard in the video of Patrick Stewart who played the character in the first trilogy X-Men.
However, nothing says for the moment if it will be Professor X that we know or a variant. But comic book fans know that his presence would not be insignificant and that, a priori, this should make it possible to introduce the Illuminati the famous team of superheroes composed, on paper, of Charles Xavier, Iron Man, Mr Fantastic, Namor, Black Arrow and Doctor Strange.
Strange seen by Professor X
Based on the footage revealed so far, we can expect a showdown between Charles and Strange. The first will certainly judge the second for his actions. During an interview with Jake’s Takes (via Screening), Patrick Stewart reacted to this long-awaited meeting. Without saying clearly what we have in store Doctor Strange 2the comedian revealed what he thinks his character might think of the magician.
Professor X would be extremely cautious and watchful, and might be feeling a bit anxious. Because there is something potentially dangerous about this man, and I think that would put Professor Xavier on his guard.
The leader of the X-Men should therefore first be on the defensive when seeing Strange. It must be said that the character is indeed particularly powerful. Does this mean that a fight between the two heroes would be possible? It is obviously still too early to tell. But when we know the tweezers that actors must take when it comes to Marvel, we say to ourselves that this statement may not be trivial.
In any case, meet May 4, 2022 to discover in the rooms Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
