- Charlize Theron spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about her appearance in “Doctor Strange 2.”
- Theron said she was “ignorant” and used to “mock” Marvel fans in what she called “the foster family”.
- The star said her opinion changed once she saw all the films and realized they were “absolutely amazing.”
Charlize Theron spoke about her honest feelings about the Marvel movies before she debuted as Clea in the end credits scene of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” revealing that she used to make fun of people she knew who were her fans.
“If I could find the anchor, I would never be so arrogant, like, ‘Oh, does that make me any less powerful as an actor,'” Theron said when asked about how she came off in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, released Wednesday.
The Oscar-winning actor went on to say, “I was clueless, I didn’t know those [Marvel] The movies are good enough that even a family member I consider, like my adoptive family, made me watch them. They are crazy Marvel fans, and I always made fun of them. Like, Oh my God, you guys are fucking geeks.”
Theron said her opinion changed during spring break when she saw “all the movies” after the kids in the family insisted.
“I was like, ‘Oh my God, they’re so good,’” she recalls. “And the kids rode it too, and it was a fun ride.”
Theron appeared as the enigmatic Clea in the first final scene of Sam Raimi’s “Doctor Strange” sequel, which was released in May and stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character.
In the scene, Clea—with his long, platinum blonde hair, purple eye makeup, purple outfit, and dagger—stops strangely as he walks down the street.
“You’ve caused an incursion and we’ll fix it… unless you’re afraid,” she said, using the blade to open a portal.
When the Third Eye appeared on Strange’s forehead, indicating that the consequences of his use of the Darkhold were evident, he replied, “Not in the least,” and leapt through the portal with Clea.
The finale sets the stage for a third “Doctor Strange” movie, though Marvel Studios has yet to announce any plans for a follow-up project.
In her interview with THR, Theron talked about the significance of her character, a sorceress from the dark dimension and love interest of Doctor Strange in the comics.
“There’s a myth about it and it’s been thought of for decades with Clea, and I challenge that,” she said. “Like, how do you reinvent that? So, I’m excited, but I honestly don’t know what that would be.”
