Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is expected to introduce a wide range of new characters as well as familiar ones. Anson Mount will reprise his role as Black Bolt in the sequel. However, it’s still not clear how many cameos Doctor Strange will have in the film. The character first appeared on ABC’s Inhumans, a show that ran for only one season before being canceled in 2018.
When Black Bolt was killed, it appeared to be the end for him and his fellow Inhumans. We’ve heard that Anson Mount will reprise his role as Black Bolt in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This appears to be in keeping with Marvel’s recent reintroductions of Daredevil and Kingpin in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye, respectively. Uncertainty abounds as to how these characters’ reintroductions fit into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe canon.
In the Multiverse of Madness, however, canon doesn’t appear to be a problem at this point. The film will traverse Marvel’s entire Multiverse, allowing it to take advantage of a wide range of continuity possibilities. For all we know, it could be one of many alternate universes referenced in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. The MCU canon could also be expanded to include the Inhumans.
Regardless of the outcome, Black Bolt fans can celebrate the fact that they’ll be getting more of their hero. Anson Mount, the actor who played the character, did an excellent job, and Marvel has clearly acknowledged this in their attempts to resurrect him. The film is expected to feature a number of cameos comparable to those in Spider-Man: No Way Home, so it appears that the Doctor Strange sequel has the possibility to correct all Marvel projects.
Based on a screenplay by Jade Bartlett and Michael Waldron, Sam Raimi directs Doctor Strange 2. On May 6, 2022, audiences will have the opportunity to see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
