Warning: Major spoilers for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and the credits scene ahead.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is officially here and of course, it’s given us a new lot of post-credits goodness.
Benedict Cumberbatch returns as the sorcerer Steven Strange, meeting new character America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) who has a very unusual power.
Plus, after his actions in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the multiverse is royally messed up so the pair have to attempt to put things right – while he’s grappling to figure out whether he’s actually the real problem.
Meanwhile, we return to Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) after WandaVision, as she’s struggling to get over what happened at Westview.
As is Marvel tradition, we were left with quite the dramatic credits scene.
What happened in the Doctor Strange post-credits scene?
After the events of the film, we find Steven strolling down the street.
However, he’s quickly interrupted by a new character with platinum hair and a purple costume and makeup, played by none other than Charlize Theron, appearing from a portal.
She tells him that he’s ’caused an incursion and we’re going to fix it… unless you’re afraid,’ as she opens a portal into what appears to be the Dark Dimension.
Earlier on in the movie, we see Steven awaken his third eye as a result of using the Darkhold. It opens again, and he tells the character: ‘Not in the least’, before they disappear through the portal together.
So who is she? We reckon it’s safe to assume Charlize has joined the MCU as Clea, the Sorceress Supreme of the Dark Dimension.
Who is Clea?
Descended from the Faltine race, Clea is a love interest of Doctor Strange’s, and ultimately succeeds him as Sorcerer Supreme in the comics.
She’s the daughter of Umar and niece of tyrant Dormammu.
Clea has been portrayed just the once on screen – by Anne-Marie Martin in the 1978 TV movie Dr Strange.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is in cinemas now.
