"Doctor Strange 2: 1980's Boogaloo," the tweet reads. "Tilda Swinton is in talks to return as the Ancient One. Jericho Drumm and Clea will make their MCU debuts, Clea will likely be portrayed by an Asian actress. Most importantly the gloves will be back!"

While this isn't confirmation of any sort, the Twitter account in question has been known to get the drop on several plot points of films throughout the years. Just in December, the account leaked information about Avengers: Endgame, including details about Thor's weight gain and the reappearance of Brock Rumlow, Alexander Pierce and Jack Collins.

Brother Voodoo and Clea Strange are both important to Marvel's mystic mythos, and Doctor Strange's lore as a whole. Jericho Drumm, also known as Brother Voodoo, is one of the few characters to hold the title of Sorcerer Supreme, replacing Stephen Strange in The New Avengers #53.
