Doctor Strange Film Rumored To Have Ties To Marvel's Runaways

It looks like Stephen Strange might not be the only magical and mystical Marvel character making their big screen debut. According to a rumor reported by That Hashtag Show, another pair of magic users might appear in "Doctor Strange" when it arrives in theaters this November: Brother Voodoo and Tina Minoru.

Brother Voodoo

The rumor claims that the characters will both have a "very small cameo," one so brief that you might miss it if you're not looking out for it. Think of them more as Easter eggs than full-blown supporting parts. This rumor has a little bit of weight to it, though, considering that the recently published "Doctor Strange" prelude comic introduced both Tina Minoru and Daniel Drumm (Daniel Drumm's brother is Jericho Drumm, a.k.a. Brother Voodoo). This comic is set inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is being used to set up the upcoming "Doctor Strange" film.

If the last name Minoru sounds familiar to Marvel readers, that's because Tina Minoru is the mother of Nico Minoru -- a member of the Runaways. And if Runaways sounds familiar, that's because Hulu just greenlit a TV series based on the fan favorite Marvel series. It's clear that "Doctor Strange" is setting a magical precedent for a character like Nico, but could the film also pave the way for Nico by including her mother in a cameo? You can watch the original report below.

Directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwitel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams and more, “Doctor Strange” opens on November 4, 2016.
