Charlize Theron shares new look at her Doctor Strange 2 character Clea – and fans are thrilled

Charlize Theron has teased her introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a new look at her character. However, before we go any further, be warned that this article contains spoilers for the post-credits scenes of Doctor Strange 2.

Charlize shared a behind-the-scenes look on Twitter at her new role Clea, after she made a cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The picture, which has been liked over 200,000 times, shows a close-up of her purple make-up and bright blonde hair. On Instagram, she also posted a still from the scene of her and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Confirmed in the credits as Clea, we first meet her in the post-credits scene. She approaches Dr. Stephen Strange on the streets of New York with a warning. Clea opens a portal and tells him: “Doctor Strange, you’ve caused an incursion and we’re going to fix it. Unless you’re afraid?” Strange embraces his newly acquired third eye before he replies: “Not in the least” and follows her through the portal.

There’s been no indication yet about what role Clea will play in the MCU going forward – or whether she’ll appear in another project or a sequel to Doctor Strange 2. However, if the MCU follows her character’s trajectory in the comics, she’ll go on to become a huge part of Strange’s story (you can take a deep dive into her history in the Marvel comics here).

Fans were understandably excited by the new look at Charlize’s character, replying to her tweet. One wrote (opens in new tab): “Great to see you in the MCU!!! Can’t wait to see more!!!” Another excitedly added (opens in new tab): “Are you freaking serious!? I have SO been waiting for Clea to make an appearance!” While a third penned (opens in new tab): “Phenomenal casting. Congratulations. Looking forward to it.” Others praised (opens in new tab) how much her character looks like the versions in the comics.

Doctor Strange 2 is currently in cinemas and will head to Disney Plus later this year. Want more on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? Then check out our guides to:
