The following post contains major SPOILERS for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. You will need the Vishanti Book to erase this information from your mind after reading it. Act accordingly.
Marvel has teased some surprise cameos in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessas Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier from X-Men cinema. But they saved the best for last – literally. In the film’s post-credits scene, Doctor Strange is walking down a New York street and encounters a sorceress dressed in all purple. She asks him to join her on an adventure in the Dark Dimension, and he agrees.
Super Marvel nerds recognize the character as Clea, Doctor Strange’s longtime romantic partner from Marvel Comics. And everyone else recognized her as Charlize Theron, one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, making her surprise debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a role that was never announced, never rumored, and never appeared in the rest of the movie.
(Someday we want to see a documentary on how Marvel keeps these huge surprise roles under wraps. It seems like it could be a more interesting movie than some of the smaller parts of the MCU.)
Theron kept her role as Clea a secret for months (or years?), but now that the truth is out, she’s finally confirmed it on her official Instagram account, sharing a photo of her impressive purple eyeliner and another photo in full. suit. next to co-star Benedict Cumberbatch.

If it wasn’t obvious before, it’s pretty clear that Theron’s cameo with Clea (say, five times faster) wasn’t just a one-time prank. She will definitely be back next Doctor Strange movie and possibly other Marvel shows or movies. In other words, after the surprise of her debut comes the uncertainty of where she will appear next.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness now plays in theaters.
