When Disney acquired Fox in 2019, Deadpool, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men were brought under Marvel Studios control. After it was announced that these characters would be integrated into the MCU, Stewart reprized his role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. As the film progresses, its titular character ends up in an alternate reality, Earth-838. There he is arrested and escorted to the Illuminati, a secret society of superheroes consisting of Karl Mordo, Captain Carter, Maria Rambeau/Captain Marvel, Black Bolt, Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic and Professor Charles Xavier – who rode into the frame in his iconic yellow wheelchair X-Men: The Animated Series (1992-97). Given that Stewart’s short-lived MCU tenure took place in a different universe, chances are that Professor X from Earth-616 will be played by a different actor.
