As I said in our previous Doctor Strange article, tidbits and rumors are starting to circulate around the web and it doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. That being said, The Illuminerdi, has once again, dropped a major scoop for this film.
The site has revealed that Brother Voodoo could make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness. Another call sheet has hinted at the character; however, it doesn’t name him directly. An unknown character description depicts a Caribbean/Haitian male role but doesn’t give anything further. The site goes on to say that Haiti will play a much bigger role in the character, which leads them to believe that Brother Voodoo could make an appearance.
This could totally be plausible, due to the Haitian nationality of Brother Voodoo. He could fit perfectly with the aesthetic of the film.
Here’s a brief character background of Brother Voodoo supplied by the site:
“Based on a concept by Stan Lee and Roy Thomas, Brother Voodoo was created by Len Wein and John Romita Sr in 1973. After spending a great deal of time learning to become a psychologist in the United States, Jericho Drumm returns to his native Haiti to find his brother on death’s door. He’s revealed to be a Houngan, a voodoo priest who has been struck down by a disciple of the serpent god Damballah. Jericho ends up studying under Daniel’s former teacher Papa Jambo and proves to be a gifted voodoo sorcerer in his own right. Taking up the name Brother Voodoo, Jericho worked with the spirit of his departed brother Daniel to defeat the man who’d killed Daniel. Brother Voodoo quickly became an established superhero, assisting characters like Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange. Brother Voodoo even briefly held the title of Sorcerer Supreme for a period of time when Doctor Strange abdicated the position, although he was seemingly killed shortly after. He was restored during the events of the AXIS event however and has resumed his role as one of the dedicated magical heroes of Earth.“
No further information has been released and is still considered a rumor.
Benedict Cumberbatch will return as the sorcerer supreme, along with Benedict Wong, as Wong, and Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch as her Disney+ series WandaVision will lead directly into Multiverse of Madness. It is unknown who the main villain is at this time but reports surfaced that Doctor Strange villain Nightmare would cause havoc in WandaVision, so it’s possible he could carry over into Multiverse of Madness.
The film was written by Jade Bartlett, who wrote a draft of the upcoming horror film The Turning for Universal Pictures. Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige will produce.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 7, 2021.
