We meet a whole new character, played by Charlize Theron, halfway through the Doctor Strange 2-credits sequence. Although she isn’t given a name, her purple dress instantly identifies her as Clea, a name verified in the credits.

Clea is a formidable magic practitioner who rivals, if not surpasses, Doctor Strange. Clea was born to two dark deities in the comics: Prince Orini, the previous ruler of the Dark Dimension, and Umar, Dormammu’s sister, making her Dormammu’s niece (Dormammu, you may recall, was the villain of the first Doctor Strange movie). They marry after an apprenticeship that blossomed into a relationship between them. In the comics, she even succeeds Strange as the Sorcerer Supreme when he dies.

“Doctor Strange, you’ve caused an invasion, and we’re going to fix it,” she says in this rendition. “Unless you’re afraid?” Clea asks as she tears a doorway into another dimension. Before entering the vortex behind her, Strange answers, “Not in the least.” We don’t know where they’re headed yet, but this might pave the way for a Doctor Strange 3 – or for her to appear in another project.

What precisely an “incursion” is could provide one of the answers to where they’re going. When two universes clash and bleed together, it’s called an incursion. If the problem is not solved, the result is that both will be annihilated. Each time a new incursion occurs, the time it takes for an incursion to occur shortens, and the Multiverse contracts, according to comic book lore. Given that Sinister Strange lived in a universe where his use of the Darkhold resulted in an incursion, we can assume that reality 616 faces an incursion as a result of Strange 616’s use of the Darkhold to save Chavez.
