Patrick Stewart teases Professor X’s return in ‘Doctor Strange 2’

Patrick Stewart teased Professor X’s return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and how it will happen.

Last month, Marvel released the second trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which contained much insanity. We say several variants of the character, returning stars and a few new ones to boot. The thing that blew everyone away, though, was an off-camera voice that was a dead letter for Patrick Stewart of the X-Men franchise.

When asked about it, Patrick Stewart was hesitant about returning to the role of Professor X in the new Doctor Strange movie. He eventually confirmed that it was indeed his voice in the film, but remained tight-lipped about the major role he has in the film. The last time we saw the actor as Professor X was in the 2017 film, Logan where both he and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine had an incredibly depressing ending.

In a recent Rolling Stones interview, Patrick Stewart was asked to return as Professor X for: Doctor Strange 2† While the actor did not reveal any details, he emphasized that he would be returning, but how we would have to wait:

“This is a very delicate area… All I can say is we have to see it. But keep in mind that Professor Xavier has already died twice. I think he has to have some kind of Superman quality.”

Here’s the synopsis for the upcoming movie:

The MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-blowing and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.

Directed by Sam Raimi from a script written by Michael Waldron, the upcoming movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, with Michael Stuhlbarg and Rachel McAdams.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters May 6, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest on the upcoming movie and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
