Playing in theaters around the world, Doctor Strange 2 surprises MCU fans with the introduction of never-before-seen characters, the return of beloved figures, and the participation of several heroes and villains from the Marvel canon. The Disney production team also puts on a show of makeup – which makes a good part of the cast almost unrecognizable.
“To reclaim a changing world, Stephen Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers’ most powerful heroine, the Scarlet Witch, Wanda,” reads the synopsis for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
At the core of the story are Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch – which, according to expert critics, represents the film’s greatest asset.
We show below what 6 of the main cast members of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are like in real life; check out.
Benedict Cumberbatch – Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness represents Benedict Cumberbatch’s 6th appearance in the MCU – following Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: No Return Home.
In real life, Benedict Cumberbatch is quite different from his Marvel character. The British actor does not have the characteristic goatee of the Sorcerer Supreme, nor the gray lines that appear in the hero’s hair.
Elizabeth Olsen – Scarlet Witch
Considered one of the most powerful characters in the MCU, Scarlet Witch gives a real show in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Wanda Maximoff is played by Elizabeth Olsen, who in real life is the sister of actresses Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.
In the MCU, Scarlet Witch is known for her long red hair, which often floats around while the character uses her powers. In real life, Elizabeth Olsen is blonde and opts for a much shorter haircut.
Chiwetel Ejiofor – Mordo
After disappearing from the main plots of the MCU for a long time, Mordo returns in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The character plays a very different role in Sam Raimi’s feature – which represents his second performance in the Marvel movies.
In real life, Chiwetel Ejiofor shares only his beard with Mordo. The British actor lacks the sorcerers’ dreadlocks, preferring a more traditional haircut. In addition to Doctor Strange films, Ejiofor is also in movie hits like Maleficent 2 and The Lion King.
Benedict Wong – Wong
By coincidence, Benedict Wong shares the same name as his Marvel character. In the Multiverse of Madness represents Wong’s 6th appearance in the MCU – following Doctor Strange, Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Spider-Man: No Coming Home.
The real-life Benedict Wong is very similar to the MCU’s Wong. The main difference between interpreter and character is the hair. While Wong has a shaved head, the British actor has slightly longer hair in real life.
Xochitl Gomez – America Chavez
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness features the debut of Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez, a hero also known as Miss America. The character plays a very important role in the adventures of Stephen Strange and Wanda Maximoff.
In real life, Xochitl Gomez is basically identical to her character. If you want to check out another great performance by the actress, Gomez is in the praised series O Clube das Babás, available in the Brazilian Netflix catalog.
Rachel McAdams – Christine Palmer
Rachel McAdams stars in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as Christine Palmer, Stephen Strange’s girlfriend. Sam Raimi’s film is the actress’ third appearance in the MCU, in addition to Doctor Strange and the animated series What If.
In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Christine Palmer appears with brown hair. But in real life, Rachel McAdams bets on a dark blonde shade. In addition to Marvel movies, the actress is in hits like Mean Girls and Spotlight.
