It’s been pretty obvious that Patrick Stewart‘s short voice cameo in the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Super Bowl trailer may have broken the Internet. He was long rumored to appear, and Marvel Studios knew exactly how to embrace it to get people even more riled up for the project. At first, the actor denied that being his voice but in an interview with Jake’s Takes he finally confirmed that the voice and earlobe we see during the trailer belong to him.
actually didn’t recognize my own voice, it sounded different. Whether I had a cold or something at the time, I don’t know. But I was astonished, and all they saw was the back of my shoulder, and I think my earlobe, nothing else. There would have been so many connections made. But, uh, it pleased me.Patrick Stewart
I think many of us have automatically made the connection that it was him when we first heard the voice, especially how iconic Stewart‘s portrayal has been of Professor X throughout the X-Men films. But, it makes sense that he might not have even recognized his own voice given that we hear ourselves quite a bit different than others do. Who knows if the voice clip played is even in the final film, but there’s no doubt now that he’ll indeed make his appearance at some point throughout Strange’s travel through the multiverse of madness.
