Fans have wasted no time trying to decode every frame of the official trailer's two minute and sixteen second runtime, mostly trying to spot as many ~familiar faces~ as they can.
HOWEVER, we may need to put a pin in that. In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Patrick came right out and denied any involvement in the upcoming film — in a delightfully coy and on-brand way.
"You know, people have been imitating my voice ever since I came on the stage 60 years ago," he said after a question about the trailer. "So, I can't be held responsible for that."
Professor X aside, another Marvel character fans predicted may make his official debut the the MCU via Multiverse of Madness was Deadpool. Heck, some fans even went so far as to straight-up claim he was right there on the official poster:
