Ejiofor who plays Karl Mordo in the MCU was last seen during the post-credit sequence of Doctor Strange. Throughout the film, Mordo was an assistant to the Ancient One and played a key role in training Stephen Strange. He left the Masters of the Mystic Arts towards the end of the film after feeling betrayed by his former allies. His appearance in the post-credit scene hinted that Mordo may go on to be an enemy of Stephen Strange in the future as he seeks to return balance by eliminating sorcerers of their powers.
In an interview with Comicbook.com, Chiwetel Ejiofor explained how excited he is to work with the former Spider-Man director Sam Raimi for Doctor Strange 2.
Ejiofor was also asked where Karl Mordo was during the battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame. Teasingly, the actor simply stated that “all will be revealed.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit theatres on March 25th, 2022. The sequel will star Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, and Elizabeth Olsen.
