Here’s Every Cameo in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is here and for a movie that had a lot of theories about cameos, there were surprisingly few in the movie. That’s not to say there weren’t cool cameos for fans to get excited about in the movie though!
There were plenty to break down, so let’s get into the cameos we saw. There will be huge spoilers in this piece for Multiverse of Madness—so you’ve been warned.
Billy and Tommy
We knew in the trailers that Billy and Tommy were going to be in Multiverse of Madness, but it was shocking just how much they were in the movie. The entire motivation for Wanda as a character is getting her boys back. The Darkhold has a control on her (and won’t let her see reason), and all she wants is Billy and Tommy. So when she goes to Earth-838 and sees them, she’s so determined to be reunited with them that she doesn’t see what she’s doing to hurt other versions of herself.
Well fans, you did it. You got John Krasinski as Reed Richards and he did maybe the most idiotic thing possible by trying to stretch at Wanda Maximoff. The smartest man in the universe decided that he could take on the Scarlet Witch, and she turned him into silly string, so at least there’s that!
It was just Earth-838 Reed, so we could still have a different version of him in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie, but this one did a pretty bad job of protecting his Earth.
For fans of Marvel’s What If…?, you probably remember seeing Captain Carter make her debut and she’s incredible as a member of the Illuminati in Earth-838! Of course, no one was a match for Wanda Maximoff, but seeing her hold her own against the Scarlet Witch and say the iconic “I can do this all day” line was surprisingly fun.
And it’s always nice to have Hayley Atwell back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Peggy Carter!
Charles Xavier comes in, helps Stephen Strange learn about the Darkhold, and then is brutally killed by Wanda, and honestly? It ruled. Xavier explained to Strange about what happened when Earth-838’s Strange got possessed by the Darkhold, and why they had to sentence him to death, but then that Charles also tried to entire Wanda’s mind. Which was definitely a bad idea.
We at least know that in Earth-838, the X-Men exist, but we didn’t get any indication of them joining Earth-616 any time soon.
Karl is back baby and it’s great. Our Stephen doesn’t understand how he’s “brothers” with Mordo in this universe until he realizes that the two still hate each other. Some things are the same in every universe. He fights Stephen and is part of the Illuminati—since Stephen Strange turned to the dark side and it delighted Mordo—but it was nice to see the two have a similar dynamic in other universes.
Captain Marvel (Maria)
In Earth-838, Maria Rambeau is who becomes Captain Marvel over Carol Danvers and it was nice to see Lashana Lynch again. She was one of the two who could still fight Wanda (the other being Captain Carter) and seeing the two women be the lone survivors in the fight (until of course they were murdered by the Scarlet Witch) was fascinating because it did show who the brains behind the Illuminati really were.
I hope we get more of that Captain Marvel though because Lashana Lynch is incredible as Maria.
What a way to die. Black Bolt (played by Anson Mount) is the leader of the Inhumans and starred in the ABC show of the same name. His power is that he can whisper and kill someone so when Reed Richards says his power out loud to Wanda, she obviously uses her power to silence him. Effectively having Black Bolt die by his own ability. It was hilarious and I love that Anson Mount came back for it, but man was it gruesome.
Bruce Campbell as Pizza Poppa
THE PIZZA POPPA! The Bruce Campbell cameo in Multiverse of Madness is just him demanding that America Chavez pay for the food she took, Stephen getting annoyed with him, and then Pizza Poppa getting hexed to punch himself for three weeks straight. Perfection.
Introduced in an end-credit scene was Charlize Theron’s Clea. Clea is half-Faltine and half-Dark Dimensional mortal and she is trained in the same magic that Doctor Strange is. So it isn’t surprising that she was brought in but it is fun to have Charlize Theron in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is in theaters now!
