Fans wonder if Mordo will finally come in handy in ‘Thunderbolts’
In all honesty, Chiwitel Ejiofor’s contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far have been about as impactful as you’d expect from a guy named Karl in a blockbuster superhero franchise. . After debuting in strange doctorthe former resident of Kamar-Taj didn’t contribute much to the mythology, but could that change in Love at first sight?
Ejiofor’s comeback was all over the marketing for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which may have led fans to believe that he had a significant role in the story. Instead, he was the exhibit’s designated delivery man when Benedict Cumberbatch’s title hero encountered the Illuminati, and we didn’t even encounter the 616 version at all.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that Mordo will even be considered for a role in Love at first sightbut MCU enthusiasts on Reddit are still wondering whether or not he could play a role in the villainous ensemble film.
Ejiofor is a great actor, although he can always be counted on to have nothing to do with big impact projects with big budgets. It’s normal to forget that he was in 2012, Salt, The old guard, Maleficent: mistress of eviland Infinite because it really had nothing meaty to sink its teeth into other than advancing the plot through dialogue.
Love at first sight could be a chance for redemption, then, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will be recruited to join the team we all assume is assembled by Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.
