The voice that says “We should tell him the truth” in the “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” trailer sounds very similar to Patrick Stewart’s, who played an older Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, in the 20th Century Studios’ “X-Men” film series. It has been widely rumored the X-Men will be featured in future MCU films, so many fans believe this new preview indicates they will make their first appearance in the upcoming “Doctor Strange” sequel. However, Stewart has neither confirmed nor denied his involvement or even alluded to any knowledge of the potential inclusion of the X-Men in Phase 4 of the MCU — until now.
Recently, Stewart has been busy promoting for the second season of “Star Trek: Picard,” his show on Paramount+. Given the recency of the release of the official “Doctor Strange” sequel trailer, the possibility of the actor’s involvement has come up. While speaking with ComicBook.com, he offered this cheeky response implying it may have been someone doing an impression: “You know, people have been imitating my voice ever since I came on the stage 60 years ago. So, I can’t be held responsible for that.”
However, an interview shared by Kevin McCarthy on Twitter paints a different picture. When asked about his voice in the trailer and whether or not he’ll appear in the film, Stewart said he received many calls and texts from people asking, “Is that you? Is that you? Well, of course,” he said before quickly adding, “I was just at home waiting to watch football, so how could it possibly be me? We’ll just have to wait and see, won’t we?”
