A new rumor suggests Doctor Strange 2 will introduce Jericho Drumm and Clea to the Marvel Cinematic Universe while Tilda Swinton is allegedly in talks to return for the sequel.
While Avengers: Endgame has been in theaters for nearly two weeks now, Marvel Studios has yet to officially unveil their plans for Phase 4. However, Scott Derrickson quietly signed on to helm a Doctor Strange sequel late last year and a new rumor offer potential on who will join the future Sorcerer Supreme in his next solo film.
Twitter user Roger Wardell, who predicted Thor would get an unexpected new look for Avengers: Endgame months before the film hit theaters, now claims Tilda Swinton is in talks to reprise her role as The Ancient One in Doctor Strange 2. The Twitter user also alleges Marvel characters Jericho Drumm and Clea will be introduced in Doctor Strange 2, with the role of Clea likely to be played by an Asian actress.
According to the user, the classic gloves Doctor Strange wore in Thor: Ragnarok will also be featured.
