Although it is undeniable that Tilda swinton made a brilliant performance in Doctor Strange, his work has not been without controversy considering that Marvel studios has done a “whitewashing” to modify a character that in the comics was originally Asian.
Although a couple of months ago Kevin Feige admitted that changing that character from Doctor Strange was a mistake, now it has been Tilda Swinton herself who has spoken out about the controversy surrounding the character of The old man.
“I remember at that time I had a question mark in my own mind and was listening to the public response to the idea that a Scottish woman would play this character, and being aware that there was no resistance, there was a general welcome – which changed at some point, for very good reasons with which I had a huge amount of support, “commented the actress in Variety.
Tilda Swinton’s last appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe It was in Avengers: Endgame, where Bruce Banner / Hulk came to her in the past to borrow the Time Stone and be able to reverse Thanos’ snap.
Unless he has some kind of surprise appearance in the new series What If …? or in the next film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in principle we will not see Tilda Swinton again incarnate The Old Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
