Do you remember? it was Chris Evans who played the Human Torch in 2005’s Fantastic Four and the 2007 follow-up Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. And yes, surprisingly Last month, it was broadcasted that Evans was approving a new deal with Marvel Studios to appear as a supporting role in a bunch of upcoming movies. Isn’t it obvious? to guess based on what we saw in the Doctor Strange 2 Super Bowl trailer?
Initially, we were all of the opinion that the fiery-glowing cameo that smashed through a wall to fight Wanda might have been the Human Torch. After all, we all know that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness persuades us to push the Marvel Cinematic Universe further into the Multiverse. Destroying reality and putting numerous versions of the titular character in the spotlight.
Chris Evans Return Could Be Set Up By Doctor Strange 2
One of these movies was assumed to be Doctor Strange 2, with further rumour focusing on him playing an evil HYDRA Cap from another universe. A Giant Freakin Robot is now sharing that additional intel that says Evan will fill two parts in Sam Raimi’s series, including HYDRA Cap, he’ll be returning as Human Torch.
It made a lot of sense if we look at a multiverse movie where anything is possible. On top of that, there’s the gossip going around about the MCU’s Fantastic Four comeback. According to rumors’, an official cast announcement might happen soon since Marvel is getting ready to start shooting.
How the New Leak Suggests the Appearance of Human Torch?
Apart from all these, I realized there are more logical explanations for this character, and you might already know. There are high chances, rather than Human Torch, it’s probably Captain Marvel or an Iron Man variant taking on Wanda. These are the first reactions to the second Doctor Strange 2 trailer.
Lastly, Evans has been questioned before if he’d ever be up for rebooting his role in the MCU, and the actor has admitted that “he wouldn’t rule it out”. And now, when the multiverse is cracked open in Phase 4, it seems like this could happen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
What is the Evidence that confirms Chris Evans Return in Doctor Strange 2?
If we look at the IMDb page of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (reported by the Cosmic Circus), you can clearly see under the Costume and Wardrobe Department section in the cast and crew, a person named Nicanor Mendoza III is credited as the costumer for the Human Torch. This might be a piece of strong evidence to guess on the basis of this.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to be released in theaters on May 6. You can check out the trailer again here:
