A Marvel Cinematic Universe villain may make his long-awaited return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
A casting post that appeared on the audition notification website Backstage offered a brief synopsis of the film, including what appears to be the return of Baron Mordo in the Doctor Strange sequel.
The description reads, “After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Dr Stephen Strange continues his research on the Time Stone. But an old friend-turned-enemy puts an end to his plans and causes Strange to unleash unspeakable evil.”

The “old friend-turned-enemy” is likely Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Karl Mordo, who had a major role in Doctor Strange.
In the 2016 film, Mordo was an ally of Stephen Strange, but his convictions led to a parting of ways between the two friends. Then, in the movie’s post-credits scene, a villainous Mordo made it his mission to steal back the magic from those he deemed unworthy.
Director Scott Derrickson recently departed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, citing “creative differences” with Marvel. While a new director has yet to be announced, it’s said this will not affect the movie’s production schedule.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen. The film hits theaters May 7, 2021.
