Marvel has released a new TV spot for Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and it not only features some cool new footage, but it also confirms the involvement of The Illuminati. Fans have been speculating that the group would make an appearance since their involvement was teased in the first trailer.

At the end of the new spot, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Karl Mordo can be heard saying, “Steven Strange, the Illuminati will see you now.” The Illuminati are a secret team of the most influential heroes in the universe. Their role is to make decisions that impact the fate of humanity from the shadows.

In the comics, the group includes characters such as Black Bolt, Professor X/Charles Xavier, Reed Richards, Namor the Sub-Mariner, and Iron Man. The only character that fans are aware of right now from that line-up that will most likely be involved is Patrick Stewart’s Professor X. Doctor Strange is also among the group of heroes.

There are a lot of different directions that Marvel could go with who is in The Illuminati group in the MCU. We’re just gonna have to wait and see! I just can’t wait to see what this movie has in store for us!

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be in theaters on May 6th, 2022.

Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.

Now that Iron Man and Captain America have left after a fierce battle in Avengers: Endgame, former genius surgeon and the strongest magician of them all, Doctor Strange, is expected to play an active role as a central figure in the Avengers. However, using his magic to manipulate time and space at will with a forbidden spell that is considered the most dangerous has opened the door to a mysterious madness called ‘the Multiverse.’ To restore a world where everything is changing, Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers’ most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. But a terrible threat looms over humanity and the entire universe that no longer can be done by their power alone. Even more surprising, the greatest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange…
