Patrick Stewart Reacts to Doctor Strange 2 Trailer Speculation & Response


Patrick Stewart reacts to his potential Professor X return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and the fans’ overwhelming response to it.

Patrick Stewart shares his reactions to speculations that he’s back as Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as well as overwhelming excitement over the idea. Marvel Studios officially started the marketing campaign for the Sam Raimi and Benedict Cumberbatch film with the release of a teaser trailer tagged on to Spider-Man: No Way Home. It was the first full trailer, released during Super Bowl LVI, that caused an uproar, though. The Doctor Strange 2 trailer featured a lot of interesting moments, but arguably, people’s biggest takeaway was the tease for Stewart’s voice as Charles Xavier.


It’s been a few years since Disney bought Fox’s movie and TV assets, resulting in Marvel Studios regaining rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and all their tie-in characters. Still, Kevin Feige and his team have been mum about their plans on the mutants, particularly as a reboot of Marvel’s First Family is already in the works. It’s uncertain how the MCU will introduce the X-Men into the franchise, but the introduction of the multiverse allows them to bring in some of the beloved parts of Fox’s Marvel franchise, including Stewart’s mutant leader.

Almost a week since the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer dropped, Stewart now opens up about the possibility of him being Professor X in the film. The actor understandably can’t confirm or deny his involvement, telling Comic Book that many people have been mimicking his voice for decades now. In a separate conversation with Kevin McCarthy, he shares his reaction to people’s excitement over the possibility, saying that everyone will just have to wait and see if he’s indeed in the next MCU blockbuster.

“You know, people have been imitating my voice ever since I came on the stage 60 years ago. So, I can’t be held responsible for that.”

« I don’t look at a lot of social media and that’s mostly a time issue, but I must say, before bedtime on Sunday evening I had plenty of communications, friends and some people I hardly knew at all making reference to ‘ah! Is that you?.’ Well, of course, you know I was just at home waiting to watch football so how could it have possibly been me? We’ll have to wait and see. »

More to come…
