Let’s take a look at every character who has been rumored to appear in Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness:

10. Rintrah

Confirmed Doctor Strange 2 character: RIntrah
The powerful Minotaur on the hero’s side: Rintrah.

The green and furry monster first appeared in comic books in 1986 as a mystical being from the planet R’Vaal before joining Doctor Strange on countless adventures. Rintrah was seen only in a few seconds of footage so far, which includes a distant image of his horse-like visage. The magical creature’s fans are eager to see more of it in action.

11. Master Mordo

In the trailers, Master Mordo is seen serving as the Sorcerer Supreme of his realm. He also looks to be more powerful than prime Mordo from the first film. This Mordo is shown in the trailers fighting Doctor Strange, but his presence will be much more than that. “Your desecration of reality will not go unpunished”, he says to Strange.

12. Christine Palmer

Christine put up her best attempt to save the Ancient One before the previous Sorcerer Supreme met her demise when viewers last saw her.

14. Ultron Drones

While their exact purpose is uncertain, the Super Bowl promotion depicted these robots making their triumphant return after their first appearance in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. These drones appear to have received a design makeover, as they now appear to be considerably more sleek and polished than they did seven years ago.

*Semi-confirmed Characters:

15. Professor X

While he hasn’t been announced to be a part of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, all indicators point to him being there. Professor X would be a good contender to lead the Multiversal team if speculations of Marvel’s Illuminati come to fruition, given his extraordinary power and intellect.

16. Captain Carter

Semi-confirmed character on Doctor Strange 2: Captain Carter
One of the MCU’s longest-standing supporting players: Captain Carter.

On the Doctor Strange 2 cover, a small sight of her shield may hint at a live-action switch for Peggy Carter. In July 2022, rumours surfaced claiming that Atwell would appear in the Multiversal sequel as Captain Carter in a minor cameo. With her shield appearing on the movie poster, it’s tough to dismiss that as a viable option.

17. Captain Marvel

Doctor Strange may be hinting at the presence of another Captain Marvel, and it’s none other than Lashana Lynch’s Maria Rambeau. As Captain Marvel rocketed into action in the sequel’s second teaser, it appeared that Lynch’s face was hidden beneath the flashing white eyes. Fans watched her fly headlong toward Wanda Maximoff in what seemed to be the Illuminati’s headquarters, so this indicates that a variant of the heroine will appear on screen.

 

*Rumored Characters:

18. Loki

Rumored character in Doctor Strange 2: Loki
God of Mischief: Loki.

Hiddleston was believed to have joined the ensemble of the Doctor Strange sequel shortly after the sixth episode of Loki debuted on Disney+.
