After that debut, and frankly bonkers, the trailer for the future Marvel movie the other week, fans began piecing various clues and subtle moments together in order to ask a bunch of questions. One part in particular - besides the possibility of a What If...? style animated world that crosses over and a glimpse of Strange Supreme and Defender Strange - showed us what appeared to be X-Men's, Professor Xavier.

To remind you of all the chaos, check out the latest Marvel Studios trailer below:

The sheer notion that Sir Pat would be reprising his role, and for the first time in the MCU, was music to fans' ears - and now the legendary actor has confirmed what we all kinda knew. "We should tell him the truth," is all we hear from the actor, with a silhouette that stays on screen for just a split second.

During an interview with Jake's Takes, the iconic Marvel and Star Trek actor said, "I actually didn't recognize my own voice," referring to that moment in the official trailer where he makes the fleeting appearance as an off-screen voiceover, which sent the online rumor mill into overdrive.

"Professor X would be extraordinarily cautious and watchful, and perhaps feel a little insecure," he said. "Because there is something that is potentially dangerous about this man. I think that would put Professor Xavier on guard," he shared when suggesting Xavier and Doctor Strange (and in whatever forms that may be) would come face-to-face.

"I had my phone turned off as it happened, so I didn't hear anything. It wasn't until the next morning when I woke up and looked at my phone and found that I had been bombarded with responses. My PR people had sent me reactions that they had detailed and passed onto me," he revealed the morning after the trailer had dropped.

"I actually didn't recognize my own voice. It sounded different. Whether I had a cold or something at the time, I don't know," he quipped. "I was astonished – and all they saw was the back of my shoulder and I think my earlobe, nothing else – that there would have been so many connections made. But it pleased me [to see the reactions]."
