Charlize Theron made her MCU debut in Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness post-credit scenes and’s all set to bring a new chapter in Doctor Strange.

She appeared as a mysterious all-purple character, which remained unnamed in the film. However, fans have recognised the popular Marvel Comics character from her purple costume. In the Marvel comics, Clea is Strange’s apprentice and love interest. Marvel introducing Clea from the Comics indicates that the new phase is about to begin.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness bringing Clea (Charlize Theron) was a huge surprise for all the fans. Doctor Strange 2 screenwriter Michael Waldron in an interview introduced her by saying, “Charlize, she’s badass.” He added, “It’s awesome. It’s so cool. I was so excited. It’s dream casting for that character. I felt like we needed to close the book on Doctor Strange and Christine Palmer’s relationship, and I feel like she advances him as a character when she tells him to not be afraid of loving someone [or] of letting himself be loved. That’s what opens the door for him to finally meet his great love from the comics. And so, she’s every bit his equal. And I just think they have an amazing dynamic in the comics, and so I’m excited to see how that plays out in the future.”

Sam Rami Directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which was released on May 6th and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen and Xochitl Gomez among others.
