Professor X Finally Joins The MCU in The New Trailer for ‘Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness’

The action-packed official trailer for Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness confirms the long-overdue addition of an iconic team of superheroes to the MCU.

If you’ve been following Marvel‘s, frankly, maddening rollouts for various Phase 4 film and television projects, the X-Men are coming. But it’s been unclear how or when they would appear in the MCU proper. But it seems their arrival is not only imminent but confirmed to be at least teased in Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness. 

Another, even more official than the first, trailer for the much-anticipated film premiered during the Super Bowl LVI pre-game show this evening, previewing the scale of the madness in Strange’s upcoming (far from solo) stint. Though the plot points are still predictably hazy, the trailer does seem to position the Doctor Strange sequel as a converging point for a lot of Marvel’s ongoing and still unrealized titles. There’s appearances from a back-on-the-grid Wanda Maximoff’s Scarlet Witch (who will figure prominently into the film’s story,) Carol Danvers’ Captain Marvel, newcomer America Chavez, and good old Professor X, leader and founder of the X-Men, seemingly portrayed by Patrick Stewart, whose voice can be briefly heard in the trailer. How Professor X factors in is anyone’s guess, but the arrival of Marvel’s team of mutant superheroes is long overdue and will only add to the hype of a film that’s already brimming with it.

Originally slated for a March release, the film was pushed back (along with every other entry on Marvel’s unending calendar of drops,) by roughly two months. The new release date is set for May 6th.
