Marvel fans have been left reeling by what appears to be an X-Men character in the newDoctor Strange 2 trailer.

Marvel dropped a brand new look at Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ahead of the Super Bowl 2022 on Sunday (13 February).

While fans are waiting patiently to see what surprises the sequel has in store, new footage seems to introduce the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

While they are not shown, the voice of Patrick Stewart’s Professor X is seemingly heard in the trailer, telling Benedict Cumberbatch’s sorcerer: “We should tell him the truth.”

Fans now believe that the Illuminati will feature in the sequel, uniting familiar comic book characters, including the villain who will appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Directed by Sam Raimi, the film will bring back Cumberbatch’s character for the first new Marvel film since Spider-Man: No Way Home.

It will also mark the return of Wanda Maximoff AKA Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) for the first time since Disney Plus series WandaVision. Her character is closely linked to X-Men, with WandaVision including the X-Men’s version of her brother, Pietro, played by Evan Peters

While it’s currently unknown how Professor X could be brought into the MCU, it is strongly suspected it will be due to the Multiverse – a series of alternate worlds featuring Marvel characters, old and new.

“That sure sounded a lot like Patrick Stewart, no?” one fan asked, with another adding: “THAT’S PATRICK STEWART. THAT’S PROFESSOR X. I KNOW THAT VOICE ANYWHERE.”

Another fan added: “Nah if i see Patrick Stewart in theatres. I’m gonna cry.”

Meanwhile, other fans spotted what they believed to be an extremely famous Hollywood star playing a variant version of Iron Man.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released on 6 May.

Another trailer dropped during the Super Bowl was Amazon Prime Video’s brand new prequel Lord of the Rings series, which viewers hailed as “incredible”.
