There are constant twists and turns to expect in the MCU, as well as references to the comics, ties to other Marvel films, and references to Disney Plus programming. Clea is a character who makes a brief appearance in one scene of a 2022 release. Her brief screen time could mean a great deal to fans of a particular hero’s comics. Here are her identity and her connections.
Who is Clea in Marvel?
Strange travels with Clea without opposition through a fissure that appears to lead to the Dark Dimension, and the scene stops there.
In Doctor Strange 2, an Incursion is defined as a collision between many worlds that destroys at least one of them. It makes it likely that Strange, America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) would create a mess of something, given all the reality-hopping witnessed in the film.
From the Marvel comics, we know that Clea is a Dark Dimension sorcerer. She is also the niece of Dormammu, the demon that Strange vanquished at the conclusion of the first Doctor Strange film.
Clea and Strange have met several times in the comics as she attempted to save his life when he faced Dormammu. But each time she defied him, her uncle imprisoned her.
Clea eventually recognized that she was only safe on Earth, and Strange assisted her in obtaining an apartment in New York City. The two became closer, fell in love, and even had a marriage-like connection. Due to her status on Earth, it was impossible for the union to be legitimate.
Will Clea Make a Return to the MCU?
Due to the strong connection between Clea and Strange in the comics, it seems likely that she will return to the big screen. However, there is yet no official confirmation that she will return. Doctor Strange will return to the MCU, according to a note at the conclusion of Doctor Strange 2. Because the film performed so well at the box office, it’s likely that there will be a third installment featuring Clea prominently.
In addition, Doctor Strange 2 shows Strange finally moving on from his love for Christine. According to the comics, this enables him the emotional room to welcome a new woman into his life, who could very well be Clea.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently available on Disney Plus.
