Patrick Stewart Continues To Deny His Involvement In Doctor Strange 2 With A Funny Face

MOVIE NEWS – The venerable actor continues to deny any involvement in the upcoming film, despite his voice being featured in the trailer.

 

It’s a tale as old as Disney’s Marvel productions. An actor is rumoured to be involved in a Marvel production and they deny any involvement until it is revealed. So it’s not surprising that Sir Patrick Stewart has since denied being involved in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, despite the fact that his voice is quite clear in the trailer, and at one point went so far as to claim he was an impersonator.

In a recent interview while preparing for the press conference for Star Trek: Picard Season 2, Stewart went even further. In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment’s Ethan Age, the Doctor Strange trailer was discussed. Stewart’s answer of “Who is Doctor Strange?” was the perfect response from the acclaimed actor.

Of course, actors denying their involvement in Marvel projects is nothing new. Andrew Garfield famously denied being involved with Spider-Man right up until the film’s premiere: No Way Home, despite his prominent role in the film. Many Marvel fans believe that the more strongly an actor denies being involved in a project, the more likely he is to be involved in that project.

In this case, however, there’s no mistaking Stewart’s voice in the trailer, despite his insistence that his voice was provided by an impersonator. Stewart’s voice is very distinctive, and anyone who was a fan of his work in X-Men or Star Trek will have no trouble picking this voice out of the trailer.

When Spider-Man: There’s No Way Home, Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe set a new Guinness Book of World Records record for the longest live-action Marvel character performance. The record was previously held by Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman before being broken by the Spider-Man duo. Despite his denial, Stewart reclaimed the record with his performance as Charles Xavier in Doctor Strange in the Madness multiverse.

Stewart first portrayed Charles Xavier in 2000’s X-Men, but he was a fan favourite for the role long before that, as he had both the looks and the attitude to play the character. When his casting was announced, the news was met with universal acclaim and he did not disappoint in his portrayal of the character.

During press for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Stewart spoke about meeting the character for the first time in an interview with Rolling Stone.

“The very first thing I heard about the X-Men, the first time I heard the title used, was one afternoon when I was doing ADR for Richard Donner for one of the films I was in. I got a message to call Lauren Shuler Donner’s office – she’s his wife, the producer. I walked in the door, Lauren picked something up off her desk and held it up. I looked at it and said, “What am I doing on the cover of a comic book?” She said, “Exactly.”

Now, 22 years after he first appeared as Charles Xavier, Stewart is back in theaters.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits cinemas on 6 May 2022.
