Doctor Strange 3 May Not Be In The Works Yet But There Are 5 Villains Who Would Fit Perfectly In the Movie


  • Doctor Strange 3 is not in works but the possibility of it taking place before Avengers: Secret Wars is likely.
  • Villains Doctor Doom, Baron Karl Mordo, Kang the Conqueror, and Chthon could be the perfect fit within the current MCU timeline if a threequel takes place.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange has become one of the key characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The former Sorcerer Supreme has played a crucial role in numerous Marvel storylines and his return seems inevitable despite Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’s lukewarm reception.

While nothing of the threequel is confirmed yet, it is expected that Strange might make an appearance in his third solo movie before Avengers: Secret Wars since the end credit scene of the sequel featured him going along with Clea to fix an ‘incursion’ in another universe. As we wait for the potential announcement of Doctor Strange 3, here are 5 formidable villains who would be the perfect antagonists against Marvel’s mystical wizard.

5. Doctor Doom

The supposed villain of MCU’s Fantastic Four reboot, Doctor Doom would sure make up for a compelling villain in Doctor Strange 3. Among the Earth’s most mystic arts villains, his facing the likes of Stephen Strange would make for an epic battle.

Furthermore, since Doctor Doom played a crucial role in Secret Wars events in the comics, his feature in the MCU seems inevitable. Apart from his having a connection to the Fantastic Four, his having an established relationship with Strange would add a new twist to the Secret Wars narrative.

4. Baron Karl Mordo

Baron Karl Mordo is one of the most fan-favorite villains of the Marvel comics. Last seen as a variant in the second movie, the character seems to be absolutely against all the sorcerers of the world. Since his death scene was cut from the second movie, it is highly expected that he might take on Doctor Strange in the potential threequel.


Also since he seemed to be convinced that Strange was equally dangerous as Earth-838’s Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, his being the main antagonist would fit perfectly well within the movie and timeline, and Marvel can also use him to recreate an iteration of Secret Wars in the MCU.

3. Kang the Conqueror

Kang the Conqueror is the MCU’s major villain in the Multiverse Saga. After meeting his end, or rather one of his various variants meeting their end at the hands of Loki seasons 1 and 2, and Quantumania, it won’t hurt for Marvel to have another variant of his to go against Earth-616’s Doctor Strange.


Furthermore, Marvel can even have the Council of Kangs comprised of Scarlet Centurian, Rama-Tut, and Immortus to go head to head with Strange in a potential threequel before their apparent arrival in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Even better would be Strange losing to them to build up the momentum for the Kang Dynasty.

2. Chthon

Chthon can be a formidable villain

The creator of the Darkhold, Chthon is undeniably powerful as an Elder God of planet Earth. The first-ever master of dark magic, his appearance is more likely after Wanda ends up destroying all the Darkhold across the multiverse. In the comics, Wanda absorbs Chthons, locking him inside him, stating he would come back if she were to die.

Marvel can adopt this storyline or even create a new version of it and thus have Doctor Strange face off with Marvel’s one of the most vile villains. Furthermore, since Strange developed a third eye as a result of the Darkhold, it gives the perfect premise for Chthon’s appearance.

Since the power of the multiverse is now unlocked, who better it is to fight Earth-616’s Doctor Strange than one of his many variants? While he did find his other variants in the Multiverse of Madness, it would be grand to fight one of his variants in a potential threequel.

Furthermore, since the end credit scene of the last film featured him running off with Clea to another universe after his actions had caused an ‘Incursion’, his going against another variant of his would perfectly fit within the storyline.
