Charlize Theron’s Journey from Marvel Skeptic to MCU Star in Doctor Strange 2

Charlize Theron is undeniably one of the most gifted actresses of our time, with a string of successful action movies under her belt, including the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road and the Fast & Furious franchise. As a recipient of numerous accolades, such as an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award, Theron has solidified her status as a Hollywood legend.

Now, with her recent cameo in Doctor Strange 2, Theron can add the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to her impressive list of accomplishments. However, it’s worth noting that she wasn’t always a fan of the Marvel Universe. Before joining the cast of Doctor Strange 2 as Clea, Theron didn’t quite understand the hype surrounding Marvel movies. So, what changed her mind and led her to become a part of this globally renowned franchise?

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Theron revealed that her perspective on Marvel movies shifted after binge-watching them with her family. Once she delved into the world of Marvel, she was hooked, and the rest, as they say, is history. Here’s what she had to say about her change of heart:

“I was ignorant; I didn’t know those [Marvel] movies well enough until a family who I consider, like, my adopted family had me watch them. They’re crazy Marvel fans, and I always used to make fun of them. Like, ‘Oh my God, you guys are such f***ing nerds.’ Then one spring break, we rented a house, and our kids were in a camp, and they were like, ‘You need to f***ing sit down and watch.’ So, we watched all the movies, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, they’re so f***ing good.'”

Charlize further elaborated on her newfound appreciation for the Marvel Universe:

“And the kids got in on it, too, and it was such an enjoyable ride. And there’s a mythology around it, and it’s been thought out over decades with Clea, and I’m challenged by that. Like, how do you reinvent that? So, I’m excited, but I honestly don’t know what the f*** it’s going to be.”

As a newfound MCU enthusiast, Charlize Theron is poised to bring Clea to life in a spectacular fashion. In the latest installment, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Clea made a brief appearance during the film’s post-credits scene, where she opened a portal to the Dark Dimension and commented on the problems Strange’s actions have caused in the multiverse. Needless to say, our jaws dropped when we finally caught a glimpse of her at the end of the movie.

While it’s evident that Clea will play a significant role in the saga, the specifics remain shrouded in mystery. However, here’s what we do know so far:

In Marvel Comics, Clea is often depicted as the ruler of the Dark Dimension, with a strong connection to the villain Dormammu (she is both his niece and his adversary). When Dormammu attempts to conquer and rule the Dark Dimension, Clea opposes him and seeks to put an end to his tyranny. As such, her appearance at the conclusion of the Doctor Strange saga could indicate that the Dark Dimension and Dormammu will play crucial roles in the story moving forward.

Additionally, it’s worth noting that Clea is one of Strange’s love interests in the comics, eventually becoming his wife. While it’s uncertain whether Clea and Stephen will embark on a romantic journey during the Multiverse Saga, there’s always the possibility of a budding romance.

Will Clea Return in Doctor Strange 3?

As of now, there’s no official confirmation regarding Theron’s return as Clea in Doctor Strange 3. However, the post-credits scene certainly hinted at her reappearance alongside Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Theron may have dropped a subtle hint on her Twitter account when she posted a photo of herself donning a purple ensemble on the red carpet, captioning it with the phrase ‘the cat is out of the bag.’ For those unfamiliar with the comics, Clea’s signature outfit is purple, which could suggest that Theron will return as the Sorcerer Supreme of the Dark Dimension.

One thing is certain: we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Clea and Charlize Theron in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
