Marvel fans are always waiting to see new favorite characters from the comic books being brought to life on screen, and according to one MCU costume designer one character has been planned for several MCU projects but has always ended up being cut. Graham Churchyard told, that Balder The Brave has been considered and rejected a number of times, including the Thor movies and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He said:

“We got very far designing Balder the Brave, and then we were waiting, and waiting, and waiting on casting. I took it to a prototype stage, we were kind of in that design thing, getting fabrics together and ideas and waiting for an actor. Poor Balder the Brave, he almost made Thor 1, and Thor 2, and Thor 3, if I can simplify that. Then, it’s just like, ‘Yay! He’s gonna get an appearance!’ Poor guy. I’ve seen designs Marvel’s archive book of Balder’s helmet going back to Kenneth Branagh’s Thor. So, he’s been a long time waiting, and I don’t think he’s gonna make an appearance any time soon.
Because of this stupid thing called COVID there was a travel ban, and I was unable to go to the States. I live in the UK here on the south coast. Basically, it got to a point where they… They had another couple of characters that were back in the design stage in the UK like Balder the Brave and because of just the way that we couldn’t bring a lot of these actors over because of travel ban in reverse and sort of constraints… We couldn’t bring Patrick Stewart over to shoot at the same time as Hayley Atwell. Hayley Atwell was into M:I 7 and other things. So, this sort of dream of getting the Illuminati all in one room at the same time didn’t happen in London. It just about happened in LA over something like a six-month time span which is an extraordinary thing. It’s like, the Illuminati, when I got those pages, it’s just like, ‘This is like a whole movie in itself because it could just expand so much.’”

Was Daniel Craig Set To Appear As Balder the Brave in Doctor Strange 2?


One of the many rumors around Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ Illuminati scenes is that Daniel Craig was supposed to appear as Balder the Brave. While there have been contrasting opinions about how close Craig got to appearing as the character, the actor seemingly debunked the idea that he was ever going to be involved in the Marvel movie. He previously said:

“It’s all rumor. I mean, I don’t know where these things come from… There’s a lot of lockdown craziness.”

Of course, the Doctor Strange sequel brought many rumors of big celebrity cameos that were never even in consideration, including the much touted Tom Cruise as Iron Man cameo that never was. Of course, there is still plenty of scope for both actors, and Balder the Brave to potentially find a place in the MCU in the coming years.
