Charlize Theron Talks About ‘The Boys’ Cameo And Her MCU Debut

Charlize Theron is one of the most known actresses nowadays. The is best known for the role in 2003’s Monster, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress, and she was also nominated for the same award in 2006 for North Country and 2020 for Bombshell. She’s known as an actress of great beauty and outstanding talent, and most recently we watched her in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in which she had her MCU debut as Clea, and in The Boys, Amazon’s acclaimed superhero satire.

In currently the latest MCU movie, Theron played Clea, a sorceress who is also known as a lover and eventual wife of Doctor Strange in the comics. Theron played the character only in the post-credit scene of the movie, which suggests that she has a long future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Earlier this month, Theron had a special cameo in the third season of The Boys as Stormfront, a character who was played by Aya Cash in Season 2, but Theron played a version of the character in Dawn of the Seven, a fictional movie which was filmed in the series itself.

Theron recently shared how it feels to be part of two superhero worlds, even though they’re completely different:

“When Kevin [Feige] asked me to join the Doctor Strange world, I didn’t even know when I was going to shoot that [The Boys cameo] at the time. The [roles] were so far apart that I almost forgot. But in full transparency, I shared it with them and they were so happy that people are interested in this world, whether it’s satire or non-satire. I don’t know why both of these superheroes can’t live in the same world.” — Charlize Theron for The Hollywood Reporter

Theron will most certainly play Clea again in the future of the MCU. She’s currently filming Fast X, in which she’ll return a cyberterrorist Cipher. She debuted in the franchise in 2017’s The Fate of the Furious, and reprised the role in 2021’s F9. She’s also set to return in The Old Guard 2 as Andy, which is currently in production for Netflix. Her next role will be of Lady Lesso in The School for Good and Evil, which will drop on Netflix later this year.
