DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Will Seemingly Include A Minor NAMOR THE SUB-MARINER Villain

DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Will Seemingly Include A Minor NAMOR THE SUB-MARINER Villain

We have a potentially very interesting casting update for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as it sounds like the Marvel Studios sequel has added one of Namor the Sub-Mariner's obscure foes.

We're still waiting for that Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, but Doctor Strange in the Multiverse is a movie that has fans just as excited for Marvel Studios' ambitious Phase 4 plans. 

Now, some social media sleuths have figured out that the sequel has added British actress Yenifer Molina to the cast. The information was shared to a casting website (where the details are uploaded by her representatives as opposed to something like IMDb that can be edited by anyone) and reveals that the Detective Pikachu and Tom and Jerry actress will play Gargantos.

Does the name ring a bell?

We'd be surprised if your answer was "yes," because the character has only appeared in two comic books. In both of those, the sea monster was depicted as a servant of Naga, a longtime Namor the Sub-Mariner foe. Gargantos factoring into this Multiverse spanning adventure is definitely a surprise, but isn't necessarily an indication that we can expect to pay a visit to Atlantis next year. 

Remember, Shuma Gorath is said to be Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' lead villain, so this creature being depicted as one of his minions would make a lot of sense.
