A new TV spot teases Patrick Stewart‘s comic-accurate Professor X for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. By now, Patrick Stewart’s return as Professor X is no longer a shock. After all, the trailer clearly unveiled his distinct voice. Nevertheless, Marvel Studios has, thus far, hid his look.
Marvel Studios doesn’t want to show Professor X until they release the movie. They’re following the Spider-Man: No Way Home marketing menu.
But unlike Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, we undoubtedly know he’s in it.
Nevertheless, the CGV YouTube channel offered a glimpse of Patrick Stewart’s Professor X. The following is a potential spoiler; do not proceed you’d rather not know.
TV Spot Reveals Patrick Stewart’s Comic-Accurate Professor X In Doctor Strange 2
You’re still here.
Of course you are.
Fans have waited for years to see Marvel Studios’ take on the X-Men.
Finally, the Fox days are gone.
The footage reveals a blurry shot of Patrick Stewart’s head. However, look more closely. Patrick Stewart sits on a wheelchair.
Is that it?
Zoom in and you’ll see that it’s a yellow wheelchair.
For comic-book fans, this is the Professor X from the printed page. The Fox X-Men movies didn’t use Professor X’s yellow hoverchair. Could this be a hint of Marvel Studios’ comics faithfulness for the X-Men in general? Absolutely. Sources indicated for years that Marvel Studios plans an X-Men closer to the original comics.
Nonetheless, comics readers won’t be the only ones celebrating. Viewers of 1992’s X-Men: The Animated Series will immediately recognize the yellow hoverchair. In addition, it won’t be the only nod to the beloved cartoon.
On February 20, I scooped that the Doctor Strange sequel will feature cameos from X-Men: The Animated series.
Could Marvel Studios decided to make them all live action? In a movie this crazy, anything is possible.
Unfortunately, Patrick Stewart’s MCU appearance as Professor X is short-lived. Patrick Stewart publicly stated that he considered 2017’s Logan to be Professor X’s last word.
Patrick Stewart changed his mind because this is a Professor X variant. In that we regard, we’re lucky to have him one more time. Furthermore, we’ll see him as he was always meant to be seen and not just heard.
Make it so.
