Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness concept artist, John Staub, reveals a new look at Charlize Theron’s Clea using her powers.
New Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness concept art shows Charlize Theron’s Clea using her powers. The superhero film, directed by Sam Raimi and based on the Marvel Comics, serves as a sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange and follows its titular character as he seeks to protect America Chavez from Wanda Maximoff, who intends to take her ability to travel the multiverse to reach her children. After much anticipation following the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and WandaVision, the movie had its premiere on May 6, 2022. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Xochitl Gomez, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Rachel McAdams.
Heading into Multiverse of Madness, fans of the MCU were already expecting a number of cameos, but Charlize Theron’s surprise appearance as Clea in the mid-credits scene now has many excited for the future of Doctor Strange. A popular character in the comics, Clea is a powerful sorceress from the Dark Dimension, known for being the daughter of Umar and niece of Dormammu, who Strange defeats in the 2016 film using the Time Stone. At the end of Multiverse of Madness, Clea approached Stephen and warned him that he had created an incursion before asking for his help to fix it.
Now, visual designer and concept artist, John Staub, is sharing the final approved design for Theron’s Clea on his Instagram. The images include the character using her powers, with purple-colored magic emitting from her hands, and Staub writes that he was “thrilled” to work on this look. The concept art also shows Clea in her purple and black costume from Multiverse of Madness. Check out the photos below:
Charlize Theron has been in many blockbusters, from Atomic Blonde to Mad Max: Fury Road and the Fast & Furious films. It seemed like a matter of time before she joined the MCU, and now, her cameo at the end of Multiverse of Madness already has fans speculating about her role in the franchise moving forward. Those familiar with the comics are aware of Clea’s abilities and eventual title of Sorcerer Supreme, but what has many excited is that she becomes romantically involved with Stephen Strange. If the MCU decides to make Clea and Strange lovers, it seems likely that Theron could stick around past the series’ third entry.
As Marvel continues to release its upcoming slate of projects, it will be interesting to see if Clea makes any other appearances before the third Doctor Strange film. There is a lot that the Academy Award-winning actress will bring to the role as the anticipation from fans to see more of her increases. For now, audiences can catch Clea in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and look forward to seeing her powers on full display when she appears in the MCU again.
