Marvel’s next foray into the mystic is set to introduce many new faces into the MCU. While it is already rumored America Chavez will be introduced in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a new report claims it will also feature the debut of Brother Voodoo.
According to The Illuminerdi, a recent character breakdown points to the hero appearing in the film. A recent casting description describes a supporting male lead of Caribbean descent with Haitian ties. Fans of the comics will immediately recognize this as Brother Voodoo.
First introduced by Len Wein and John Romita Sr. in 1973’s Strange Tales #169, Jericho Drumm is a trained physician who takes up the mantle of Brother Voodoo to avenge his brother’s death. The hero quickly became an established member of the Marvel universe, even taking up the mantle of Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor Strange’s absence. Drumm has carved out his own little corner of the comics and is as capable as Stephen Strange.
The decision to pair Strange with Voodoo makes sense, given the character’s history in the comics and their many similarities. Additionally, given the hero has taken up the role of Sorcerer Supreme in the past, it leaves room for him to stand in for Doctor Strange in the MCU’s future.
Given the report, America Chavez will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, this could suggest Brother Voodoo will be from an alternate reality. In the comics, America is from an alternate universe, so this could mean Strange will be gathering heroes from across the multiverse.
