'Doctor Strange' Scribe Says Clea May Appear in Sequel

Jon Spaihts reveals that the powerful sorcerer who is described as Doctor Strange's love interest in the comic book series may make her big-screen debut in a potential sequel.

AceShowbiz - "Doctor Strange" scribe Jon Spaiths has shed some light on what to expect from its potential sequel. He told Comic Book Resource that the second movie might feature Clea, a powerful sorcerer who is also the Sorcerer Supreme's love interest. "She's a tricky character to interpret because her uncle is a kind of fire-headed omnipotent god and she's kind of a hot babe who studies magic," he began.

"That's a tricky relationship to bring out of a comic book and on to a movie screen," Spaihts continued. "But she's a really compelling character as a foil, a love interest, a colleague of Doctor Strange's, and she always carries with her that width of mystery as to whether she is human, and how human, and what that means for his relationship to her. So we might find a way to introduce her to the story."

For those unfamiliar with Clea, she is a powerful sorcerer who rules over the Dark Dimension as its princess. Despite her underworld residence, Clea is not a villain. In fact, she continues to rule over the Dark Dimension in order to keep it from spilling into the material world.

In comic book series, she is said to meet Doctor Strange when he enters the Dark Dimension to battle otherworldly entities, and the princess comes to his aid. The two later fall in love, and Clea works with Doctor Strange to help keep their homes separate.
