Marvel’s next film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, is still months away from its release, but it has rumor mills spinning at full speed with leaks and reports of cameos. Since the film deals with the concept of a multiverse of character variants, chances are that several pairings of fan-favorite actors and characters will come true. Now, a new leak has revealed that lead actor Benedict Cumberbatch is playing more versions of his character than shown in the trailer.

Trailers for the film have so far shown four versions of Doctor Strange in the film. Along with who Benedict has played in the MCU so far, the film also included the “villain” Strange Supreme, a Defender Strange, and a Zombie Strange.
But a new Funko Pop toy, part of the movie’s official merchandise line, shows off a totally new character. Photos of the toy and its box have been shared by fan clubs online and it shows that this character’s name is Supreme Strange. But unlike Strange Supreme, who bears the same name, this character lacks Strange’s signature facial hair.
Several eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that the character may have already been referenced in the trailer. One of the trailers shows Doctor Strange standing in front of a statue of another Doctor Strange, who notably has no facial hair.
Previous leaks have claimed the presence of several other actors in the film, but without confirmation. These include Tom Cruise playing a variation of Iron Man, John Krasinski playing Mr Fantastic, and Taron Egerton taking over as Wolverine. There are also reports of Tobey Maguire and Ryan Reynolds reprising their roles as Spider-Man and Deadpool, respectively.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is part of Phase 4 of the MCU. Sam Raimi’s film has been described as Marvel’s first horror film and will hit theaters on May 6.
