There's a lot of speculations right now regarding who will show up for a cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness whether it's Deadpool, Wolverine, Tom Cruise's Iron Man, Anson Mount's Black Bolt, or John Krasinski's Reed Richards. One of the names that fans are also bringing up is the Human Torch, who was played by Chris Evans in Tim Story's Fantastic Four films. Of course, none of these have been confirmed yet by Marvel but now it looks like there is new evidence that suggests that the Human Torch might actually show up in the film.

If you look at the IMDb page of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (which was first reported by the Cosmic Circus), you can see under the Costume and Wardrobe Department section in the cast and crew that a person named Nicanor Mendoza III is credited as the costumer for the Human Torch. You can check the screenshot below:

If you look at Mendoza III's credits on his page, he has worked with Marvel before as a set designer for Spider-Man: No Way Home and an episode of WandaVision. He is also going to work for Agatha: House of Harkness according to the page. However, the most interesting part here is that he is also credited as the costume designer for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

We do have to take note that IMDb is not 100% reliable when it comes to films that are still in production since anyone can have the access to edit the page. Marvel Studios also hasn't confirmed the character's appearance yet. For now, we have to take this with a grain of salt and open up on the possibility that Mendoza III's involvement might not actually be true.

Assuming that the information is indeed true, it is very interesting to know that the Human Torch will be appearing in the film in some capacity. If he is going to show up, who will play him and what will he look like? The best guess is that Evans might reprise the role again and it has also been rumored for a long time that he will be making his MCU return as the Human Torch, instead of Captain America. Right now, we don't have the answer yet so all we can do is to wait for the film's release to find out if the Human Torch is indeed going to be in it.
