Patrick Stewart Comments On Professor X's Difficulties In appearing In "Doctor Strange 2"

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Patrick Stewart delved into his return to the character of Xavier in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, although he is reluctant to reveal any details. The actor explained that Professor X had already died twice in the X-Men movies, so he had to have some special power in him.
Of course we know that everything is possible thanks to the opening of the Multiverse, but here's what Stewart said:
"This is a very delicate area... All I can say to you is we'll have to see. But bear in mind that Professor Xavier has already died twice. I think he must have some sort of Superman quality."

Directed by Sam Raimi, this sequel will also feature Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), straight from the success of WandaVision. The screenplay for the film will be written by Jade Bartlett and Michael Waldron.
In addition to Cumberbatch and Olsen, the movie will also include Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo and Xochitl Gomez as newcomer America Chavez.
