WARNING: This contains SPOILERS forDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees the return of Patrick Stewart as Professor X, and it continues a long tradition of the character dying in one film and somehow returning in another.
With his brief Professor X cameo in Doctor Strange 2, Patrick Stewart regained his record as the longest-running actor to play a Marvel character on-screen, beating even Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe, who returned in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
