The Illuminati and Charlize Theron's Clea are introduced in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness official film.
Benedict Cumberbatch returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the studio's next blockbuster, after his appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) is being pursued by the Scarlet Witch throughout the film, and he must defend her at all costs (Elizabeth Olsen).
There is no better way for Marvel Studios to go deeper into the cosmos than with Doctor Strange: The Multiversity of Madness.
As a result, a slew of new characters with ties to the MCU are introduced in the film.
With Hayley Atwell as Captain Carter, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mordo, and Maria Rambeau's Captain Marvel as Maria Rambeau with Black Bolt, Mister Fantastic, and Professor X as the other members of the Illuminati on Earth-838 (Patrick Stewart).
Theron makes her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Clea in the post-credits sequence of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which also introduces us to the super-secret squad.

Marvel Studios has revealed new video from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which has been in cinemas for a few weeks and shows the Illuminati confronting Strange for the first time.
Clea's entry in the MCU is also included in the video, which was published by Doctor Strange's official Twitter account.
Take a look at this video:
The original post may be found here.
Four of Earth-838 Illuminati's six members have already been shown in previously released official footage.
Even in this footage, Mister Fantastic and Professor X are nowhere to be found.
It's odd that Marvel Studios isn't in the film, given that it's been a long time since the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and many fans already know about their involvement in the film.
Considering that the existence of Charles Xavier was announced through the movie's promotion, there's no need to keep him a secret now that his cameo has been confirmed.
Even if all of the members of Doctor Strange's Illuminati squad were still alive, the chances of seeing this identical lineup again in the MCU are minimal to none.
Theron has been vocal about Clea's appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for a long time now..
Marvel Studios has already made use of a promotional image of Clea and Doctor Strange in the film, so her inclusion in this new promo trailer isn't a surprise in the least.
Her look, for the most part, doesn't disclose anything new.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have no clue where she and Doctor Strange will go next based on what we know from the comics.
Theron's cameo is a huge deal since it confirms her affiliation with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
