The screenwriter himself has confirmed important details about the mutant’s participation!
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrived in theaters, bringing with it a breathtaking and terrifying journey through different universes. And in one of these realities, we encounter a particular version of the Professor Xthe mutant who runs the x-men. However, fans have their doubts about this adaptation of the character.
THE Charles Xavier who appears in the film is played by patrick stuartthe same actor who brought the hero to life in the original trilogy of x-men given Foxin addition to having participated in films such as Days of a Forgotten Future and Logan. The doubt, however, came from the fact that it has a look similar to the 90s animated series, in addition to hearing a version of the classic animation theme when it shows up.
In an interview with Varietythe screenwriter of the film, Michael Waldron commented on the doubt raised in the mutant telepath’s cameo. According to him, this is a different version of the character, which combines elements from his adaptation. live action with its animated version:
“A bit of both. I don’t know if I can go into detail about these actors or their characters, but I worked with him to do something different, so it’s a different version. [do personagem]. He uses a phrase from “Days of Future Past” when talking to Stephen. But beyond that, we’ve brought some details about the animated version of it. It is a variant that has the qualities of several different versions of this type in the multiverse.
With this, Waldron confirms that the Charles Xavier featured in the film is not the same as the films of the x-men and neither the animated series, but a new character that combines the traits of these two variants, taking into account that both the universe of the films of the Fox as for X-Men: The Animated Series are part of the Marvel Multiverse.
By the way, here is a curious detail about this participation: when Charles Xavier comes to the meeting of the Illuminatiwe briefly hear the soundtrack of X-Men: The Animated Series. However, in the credits of the film, we have confirmation that it deals with the theme of X-Men ’97.
It’s the name of new anime series developed by wonderful studios, which will continue the plot of the original animation. This is the first time we’ve gotten a glimpse of some elements of the new series, as the theme will likely be used in the opening of X-Men ’97.
Still, it is curious that Professor X of this universe is a “fusion” of these two versions, which confirms that the characters revealed here are variants of figures that we already knew before, as is the case of Mr. Fantastic and give Captain Carter (which is not necessarily the same as What if…?), or the black raywhich although played by Anson Mount, is not necessarily the same as that presented in the series of inhuman.
