A new piece of fan art, "Art of Time Travel"

A new fan art piece places the original Illuminati members in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The original Marvel Comics Illuminati included Iron Man, Black Panther, Black Bolt, Namor, Professor X, Mister Fantastic, and Doctor Strange. They're all superhero industries that would make it simpler to make global policy. Marvel Studios presented the Earth-868 Avengers in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, with some familiar faces swapped out for some who have since left or haven't been introduced to the MCU. However, in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, viewers got a taste of what the Illuminati may have been like if Marvel Studios had persevered with the notion, thanks to Namor's appearance.

Thanks to the digital artist, In a new piece of fan art called "Art of Time Travel," the original members of the Marvel Illuminati are put into the MCU. Professor X, Mister Fantastic, Black Bolt, and Doctor Strange from Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness are on the team. Namor from Iron Man and Tenoch Huerta is also on the team.

After Doctor Strange 2, will the Illuminati return to the MCU?

Doctor Strange's Illuminati in the Multiverse of Madness wasn't from the Sacred Timeline. Instead, they were from a very different reality from the main MCU. Even so, it was shocking how quickly the Scarlet Witch killed them in the movie directed by Sam Raimi. Wanda Maximoff went on a killing spree, and before they could even become powerful players, she brutally killed them all. This means that Earth-838 doesn't have its secret superhero team anymore, and it needs to be clarified what that means for its future or if Marvel Studios even wants to explore that in the future.

The good news about Illuminati

The good news is that the franchise can still bring back the Illuminati, but maybe with a different team. Since Doctor Strange's Illuminati team wasn't from the main timeline, their deaths don't have a big effect on the main MCU story. Given this, Marvel can still easily introduce a different version of the team that is supposed to protect the Sacred Timeline. But Kevin Feige and his team may have to change the cast again because, even though Namor was added, Iron Man is still dead, and it doesn't look like Robert Downey Jr. will be back in the MCU anytime soon.

No rush for Illuminati

In any case, there's no rush for the MCU to bring back the Illuminati. Marvel Studios hasn't even finished putting together the cast for "Mister Fantastic," and it's unlikely that Patrick Stewart will play Professor X for a long time. Since this is the case, it might be a while before the secret superhero team is set up in the Sacred Timeline. They might only be able to do it after the Multiverse Saga, when the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and even the Inhumans are well-known characters in the universe.
