The design of a new Funko Pop! toy suggests that The Multiverse of Madness will feature a version of Doctor Strange with a drastically different look.
In both Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange has been immediately recognizable thanks to his distinct pointed beard, but it’s possible that the character in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be sporting quite a different look.
A new Funko Pop! toy available for pre-order on The Mighty Hobby Shop bears the Multiverse of Madness logo that marks it as official merchandise for the film, but the figure itself is a version of the Master of the Mystic Arts that’s never been seen before. In addition to wearing a new outfit, this Stephen Strange is missing his trademark goatee, a detail that is always included in depictions of him even when they have the simplified face of Funko figures.
Trailers for Multiverse of Madness have shown Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange complete with his usual goatee, so it’s clear that the clean-shaven face is not a replacement for his usual look. The difference in the Funko Pop! may be explained by the designation on the box, “Supreme Strange.” As it’s already confirmed that the movie will deal with variants of Strange coming through the weakened borders of the multiverse – much like the three incarnations of Peter Parker sharing the spotlight in Spider-Man: No Way Home – the Supreme Strange figure may be the name given to a beardless version of the character from another universe.
Regardless of the mystery around Supreme Strange, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness promises any number of surprises for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans. The powerful Wanda Maximoff will have a major role, with her status as ally or villain still unclear, and characters such as America Chavez will make their live-action debut, but others have been rumored as well.
In addition, the voice of Sir Patrick Stewart was heard in the latest trailer, leading to hopes that he’ll be reprising the role of Professor X of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men films and introducing the team of mutant superheroes to the MCU.
Doctor Strange himself will come face-to-face with at least one other variant of himself, who appeared in the trailer and is rumored to be the same evil alter-ego that appeared in the Disney + What If …? series. Also, Cumberbatch has alluded to significant reshoots, leaving fans to theorize about even more characters who might potential be in them.
Doctor Strange, with or without his facial hair, will be back when Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 6.
