Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is looking to be one of the most “far out” films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the balance of infinite realities at risk we will see alternate universes and realities collide with one another. Dr. Steven Strange will have to figure out what is causing the disturbance and how he can bring balance back to reality.
In the film one of the side characters is Baron Mordo, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. The character was originally introduced in the 2016 Doctor Strange as more of an ally to the doctor and not a threat. Now the @DrStrangeUpdate account on Twitter shows off some new promotional art of the new design for the character. Hinting that this may be an alternate reality version of the character to due the design change:

Baron Mordo was first introduced in Strange Tales #111 in August of 1963. He was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko as an adversary for the powerful Doctor Strange. A Transylvanian nobleman who became a student of The Ancient One, similar to Strange. He plotted to overthrow his teacher, but was defeated before he was able to achieve his goal. He is a master of Black Magic and has even mastered certain forms of hand-to-hand combat, in addition to extensive knowledge of magic and magical lore. At one point he served Dormammu in the Dark Dimension to learn more powerful magic to defeat Doctor Strange.
It is currently unknown if this version of the Baron is either another version from another reality since multiple Doctor Stranges are confirmed, or if he is finally becoming a villain character like in the comics.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to release on May 6th, 2022. Are you ready to see what alternate realities lay ahead for you to explore?
