Marvel Studios has released a brand new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer that hints at the introduction of another mystery character. Sam Raimis upcoming comic book movie is already stacked with a brilliant cast led by Benedict Cumberbatchs Stephen Strange. There will be several returning MCU favorites but Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will also see the arrival of a few more fresh characters.The marketing campaign for the upcoming Marvel Studios blockbuster has been steadily going as its premiere nears. As the title suggests Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will see the titular MCU sorcerer travel through the multiverse. His upcoming adventure is set up by his involvement in Peter Parkers Tom Holland arc in Spider Man No Way Home. Aside from Doctor Strange the sequel will also see the return of some familiar characters such as Wong Benedict Wong and Wanda Maximoff Elizabeth Olsen. Meanwhile Xochitl Gomez debuts as America Chavez. However she may not be the only new face in the sequel.
In the latest Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer Doctor Strange and America are seen swiftly passing by multiple realities. At one point what appears to be the Living Tribunal appears in the background convincing fans that the Marvel Comics character will make his MCU debut in the Raimi directed movie.Marvel Comics readers will be familiar with the Living Tribunal as hes one of if not the most powerful players in print. The three faced entity is responsible for overseeing the Marvel universes alternate dimensions which makes his potential involvement with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness make sense. Interestingly the Living Tribunal was also the one who ordered the Infinity Stones to be separated as a safeguard to not let one character wield all its powers again. The MCU may have not seen the Living Tribunal in live action but he was referenced in the original Doctor Strange film when Mordo Chiwetel Ejiofor explains a weapon found in Kamar Taj called The Staff of the Living Tribunal to then neophyte Stephen.
Assuming that it is really the Living Tribunal its curious how prominent he will be in the movie. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness might be quite packed as it is. Adding a character as powerful and important as he is could backfire. In any case even if it is just going to be a cameo chances are that he will re appear in future projects in the MCU. After all Marvel Studios is known for playing the long game. Considering the Living Tribunals role in Marvel Comics this makes more sense than giving him a shoehorned role in the upcoming blockbuster.
