DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS: Patrick Stewart Addresses Apparent Professor X Return In Trailer

In the new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer, we saw a character who appeared to be Patrick Stewart's Professor X. The actor, however, isn't giving anything away on his possible return.

Last Sunday, Marvel Studios released a new trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that was crammed with big reveals. At one point, the MCU's former Sorcerer Supreme was brought before a group believed to a Multiversal Illuminati, with Sir Patrick Stewart's Professor X seemingly among them.

It certainly sounded like the legendary actor, anyway, and the Picard star was asked about his apparent MCU debut during a recent interview with Kevin McCarthy. 

"I must say, before bedtime on Sunday evening, I'd had plenty of communications," Stewart recalled with a smile. "Friends and some people I hardly knew at all making reference to [the trailer]. "Is that you? Is that you?' Well, of course, you know, I was just at home waiting to watch football, so how could it possibly have been me? We'll have to wait and see, won't we?"

Clearly not wanting to give anything away, the X-Men star appears to be having fun teasing interviewers looking to get a Doctor Strange scoop from him. In a separate conversation with ComicBook.com, Stewart teased: "You know, people have been imitating my voice ever since I came on the stage 60 years ago. So, I can't be held responsible for that."

It's seem pretty obvious that it is Stewart's Charles Xavier (or at least a Variant of the one we've previously seen on screen) in the trailer, but exactly what role he'll play in the Sam Raimi helmed sequel remains to be seen. The impact his appearance will have on the X-Men's MCU future is another big mystery.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to be released in theaters on May 6.
