If you’re eagerly looking forward to seeing Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness in theaters, we’ve got something that will double your excitement. X-Men alumnus Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Charles Xavier or should we say Professor X in seven X-Men movies, has seemingly confirmed that he will have a cameo in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. In a recent interview with Jake Hamilton of Jake’s Takes, the kind veteran stated that he is the “mysterious” voice in the Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness trailer that left many intrigued when the video came out during the Super Bowl.
For the inexperienced fans, fans had predicted that they would see Professor X, as well as Superior Iron Man and Wolverine in Doctor Strange 2. However, when the trailer came out, only the back of Patrick Stewart’s shoulder and his ear appeared in a specific part of the clip where you can see him talking to Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The trailer’s captions described the character talking to Doctor Strange as “mysterious voice,” but it didn’t take long enough to figure out that it’s actually Professor X.
However, Patrick Stewart himself did not “recognize” his own voice in the trailer because it “sounded different”. He told Jake: “Well, I had my phone turned off when it happened so I didn’t hear anything (when the trailer was released). It wasn’t until the next morning when I woke up and looked at my phone and found that I had been bombarded with comments and that my PR people had sent me comments that they had detailed and passed on to me… I actually didn’t recognize it my own voice, it sounded different. Whether I had a cold or something, I don’t know. But I was stunned, and all they saw was the back of my shoulder, and I think my earlobe, nothing else. So many connections would have been made. But um, I liked it.”
Even after Marvel Studious released the trailer on social media on Feb. 14, fans flooded the comment section with speculation that it is indeed Professor X in the trailer saying, “We need to tell him the truth.” One user wrote: “Was that…Professor X?” While another commented: “Did they just put Charles Xavier in the trailer?”
In the interview with Jake, Patrick Stewart also opened up about the idea of an interaction between Professor X and Doctor Strange: “Professor X would be extremely careful and vigilant and might feel a little insecure. Because there is something potentially dangerous about this man. I think that would make Professor Xavier wary.”
