Charlize Theron has given Marvel fans a glimpse of her character Clea, the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Oscar winner took to Instagram and Twitter to share a few behind-the-scenes photos of her in the character’s getup, piqued the curiosity of movie fans. This comes after Clea was first teased in the post-credits scene connected to the Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen-led Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In the Marvel Comics, Clea is Doctor Strange’s lover and a skilled sorceress herself.
For those who might not know, Clea also happens to be the niece of Dormammu, the villain in Doctor Strange. While we don’t really know what the future holds for Clea in the MCU, she is expected to star in the yet-to-be-announced Doctor Strange 3 alongside Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange. And given Theron’s status, it’s possible that Clea could get a feature film or series somewhere along the line. If Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel can get one, why not Clea.
Doctor Strange 2 Review: The Multiverse of Madness is too much and too little
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness screenwriter Michael Waldron hinted at the same thing on Deadline’s Hero Nation podcast last week: “Doctor Strange and Clea have a lot of great adventures in the comics, and we knew we wanted to share them wanted to introduce. But it felt like we had to close the book on his love story with Christine Palmer — the Rachel McAdams character — to some extent, and so Doctor Strange hears that wisdom from Christine about facing his fears and being open to the idea To be, to love someone is Clea, and I think we’ll see what happens next between the two of them.”
If Marvel takes this path for Theron’s Clea, it will be very different than Doctor Strange, since that character was introduced directly through the standalone film Doctor Strange, which was released in 2016. Of course, the other route in the MCU isn’t too uncommon either. With a gap of six years in between Doctor Strange and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it will be interesting to see when we next see Clea.
Part of that gap was due to Cumberbatch being involved in larger MCU adventures. Following Doctor StrangeHe then appeared in the mega-meeting Avengers: Infinity War, the universe-changing Avengers: Endgame, and the interdimensional Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Directed by Sam Raimi, who introduces real horror to the MCU through the film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is cast – alongside Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange / Doctor Strange, Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and McAdams as Christine Palmer – includes Benedict Wong as Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo and Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now in cinemas worldwide.
