One of the most anticipated things in the blockbuster Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the appearance of a series of Marvel characters from different universes, including the X-Men universe, which is owned by of the former 20th Century Fox. Besides, this movie can also be a springboard for a series of new superheroes to land in the MCU in the near future.
In addition to several other variations of Stephen Strange (you can learn more about this in this article), here are the notable names that have been confirmed, and may appear, in the most important blockbuster. 2022 by Marvel Studios.
Although Loki does not appear in the Multiverse of Madness trailer, many reputable sources, including The Hollywood Reporter, have confirmed that the MCU’s cunning god will also be in this movie. This is also not unreasonable, because Loki is one of those who have witnessed the chaos of the multiverse, and also understands the dire consequences that this situation can have.
However, perhaps Loki’s role in the Multiverse of Madness will not be too big, but simply a short cameo, similar to the role of Doctor Strange in Thor: Ragnarok. And it also does not rule out the possibility that related characters, like Sylvie or some variation of Kang, will also appear in this blockbuster.
The image above has been causing controversy among Marvel fans over the past few days, because it’s unclear if it’s another version of Iron Man, Captain Marvel or even Kang the Conqueror. However, in the trailer of the Multiverse of Madness, we see the appearance of an army of drones, tasked with escorting Strange to meet the Illuminati. It is possible that these drones are owned by Iron Man – who comes from a reality where Ultron does not rebel and properly fulfills its duty to protect humanity.
This version of Iron Man is called Superior Iron Man, one of the strongest and most personal variations of Tony Stark in the Marvel comics. Some sources said that Tom Cruise, who had fallen in love with Iron Man before, was chosen for the role. However, Marvel has yet to give any confirmation information.
Another variation of Scarlet Witch
Besides Strange, Wanda will also face at least one variant of himself, right at the old house in Westview. Although the purpose of this variant is unknown, many fans believe that this is the “final boss” of the Multiverse of Madness, who attacked Iron Man and the headquarters of the Illuminati in the latest trailer.
It is almost certain that Charles Xavier/Professor X will appear in the Multiverse of Madness, and even many fans believe that the person who ordered Strange’s arrest in the trailer is the venerable teacher of the X-Men. He will be a member of the Illuminati, tasked with protecting the multiverse order, and also as a bridge to help characters from the old X-Men series come to the MCU.
Since the X-Men timeline under the Fox era is quite confusing and even somewhat contradictory, this would be a great opportunity for Marvel Studios to bring all the mutants into one place, in one universe. more unified and more dimensional. And if Professor X really appears, it is not excluded that we will also see old faces like Wolverine, Jean Grey, Storm, Cyclops or Magneto.
If the Illuminati really appears, there is a high possibility that we will also meet “Mr. Fantastic” Reed Richards in the Multiverse of Madness. The character is also a member of the council along with Professor X. And more importantly, Marvel Studios has confirmed that it will produce a reboot for Fantastic Four right in this phase 4, after Spider-Man: No Way Home completed .
Namor the Sub-Mariner
Another member of the Illuminati that we cannot fail to mention is Namor the Sub-Mariner, the king of Atlantis. There are rumors that Namor will appear in Black Panther 2, and the Multiverse of Madness will be a good opportunity for Marvel to introduce this character to the audience. In the comics, Namor was originally a rival to the Fantastic Four and sometimes a villain in the Black Panther storylines. So, this will definitely be an important character in many future projects of the MCU.
Wanda and Vision’s Twins
The ending of WandaVision shows that Billy and Tommy are most likely still alive and trapped in another reality. It is possible that Wanda will use Strange and the chaos of the multiverse to rescue her two children, thereby making her one of the main villains of the Multiverse of Madness as many recent rumors have said.
Billy and Tommy are the first two members of the Young Avengers that Marvel Studios is quietly building for the future of the MCU. That’s why they in turn brought characters like Kate Bishop (Hawkeye), Iron Lad (Kang the Conqueror), Elijah “Eli” Bradley (Patriot), Cassandra Lang (Stature), America Chavez or Kid Loki on the screen.

Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire)
Rumors of Tobey Maguire returning to the role of Spider-Man in No Way Home and Multiverse of Madness have been circulating since Sam Raimi was selected as the new director of Doctor Strange’s second solo film. Now, this rumor has been half-correct, and it wouldn’t be too surprising that Tobey also joins the MCU’s multiverse war, even if it’s only with a small cameo role. This is also a good opportunity for him to reunite with director Sam Raimi and together complete the unfinished details that the two left behind in the previous Spider-Man trilogy.
There have been rumors that Marvel Studios wants to bring Black Bolt into the MCU for years. And now, when the Illuminati will almost certainly appear in the Multiverse of Madness, it is likely that we will soon see Blackbolt on the screen again in May, because he is also a core member of the Multiverse of Madness. this organization.
Vin Diesel has repeatedly expressed his desire to play the silent leader of the Inhumans, but Marvel has yet to make any confirmation regarding this information.
Some information suggests that Captain Carter will step out of the animated series What If…? and appeared in the Multiverse of Madness, played by Hayley Atwell. This superhero has fought with Ultron to protect the multiverse and also understands how dire consequences if the multiverse collapses. Most importantly, in the latest poster of the Multiverse of Madness, we can clearly see the reflection of Captain Carter’s shield on a shard of broken mirror around Doctor Strange.
