A behind-the-scenes video for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness reveals a new look at Charlize Theron’s Clea. Theron appears in the mid-credits scene of Doctor Strange 2, making her MCU debut as Clea, who has been a staple character in the comics since her introduction in 1964 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Clea is known as “The Mistress of the Dark Dimension,” who teams up with Strange, eventually becoming his lover and wife.
Clea’s appearance was rumored ever since Doctor Strange 2 was announced, as comic fans are aware of her significance in his comic history. The character was featured only one other time in live-action, appearing in the 1978 Doctor Strange film, played by actress Eddie Benton. Clea has otherwise been absent from Marvel-related projects outside of the comic-book page, showing up in a few video games and in an episode of the X-Men animated series.
