The rumours surrounding who may or may not appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness did not die down with the arrival of the new trailer during the Super Bowl.
Instead, the number of people with ideas about who will show up has reached new levels thanks to suggested appearances by Professor X, Superior Iron Man and Mr Fantastic, as well as a new poster that has been excessively dissected by fans looking for every available clue. Now, a new suggestion from The Illuminerdi’s Joseph Deckelmeier indicates that we could be about to see the introduction of a new version of Wolverine in the film.
For many people, the only Wolverine is Hugh Jackman, but having played the character for what seemed like the last time in Logan, it’s almost certain that everyone’s Wolverine won’t be back for the Doctor Strange sequel, despite the multiverse allowing it.
Instead, it looks like we’ll see Patrick Stewart reprise his role as Charles Xavier aka Professor X, although the iconic actor has chosen to follow Andrew Garfield’s lead by denying his involvement. In recent interviews he has even gone so far as to say that he has spent many years listening to people pretend to be him and hinted that it could be a fake voiceover, but so far no one is really buying it.
Deckelmeier’s tweet stated, “We’ll see Wolverine in [Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness] but it certainly won’t be Hugh Jackman.”
This has obviously sparked a host of speculative theories about who will play the role, with the lead being Daniel Radcliffe, and whether we’ll see who will actually take on the role permanently as the X‑Men are fully introduced into the MCU. in the future. Of course, at the moment, any Wolverine appearance, like so many others, is unconfirmed and will certainly remain so until the film’s release in May.
