We still have a few months until Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness finally releases in theaters. After originally eyeing a March release, the film was pushed back to a May release but that isn’t stopping the toy releases to offer a glimpse of what we can expect from the upcoming sequel. We did get a look at a Strange Variant, only known as the Defender Strange, and now we also got one for Chiwetel Ejiofor‘s Mordo, which offers our best look yet at his new look in the upcoming film.
We still don’t know what his role in the story will be, but he seems a bit more sympathetic towards Strange even though he was focused on ending the existence of sorcerers. Perhaps he has gone down a different path, especially with the new dangers they oppose. Of course, there’s also the possibility that this version of the character is a Variant due to the multiversal nature of this story. There’s no mention of him having a different name like with Defender Strange, but it doesn’t mean we might not see different versions of the character throughout the film. It’s going to be fun speculating as we near its release.
