In a “Strange” turn of events, Chiwetel Ejiofor has been confirmed to return in Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness.
A fan poster for the sequel showcases returning cast members, including Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mordo. The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film is the sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange. The movie was praised for its unique visual style unlike anything seen before in the MCU. Its success led to further appearances by Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, including in Thor: Ragnarok and the final two Avengers movies. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently scheduled to release in early 2022, though that could change if MCU release dates continue to shift.
The sequel will feature several casting changes, though Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong, will both be back. Ejiofor is now set to return as Baron Mordo. He also hinted that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness may reveal Mordo’s whereabouts during Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
