British actor Benedict Cumberbatch who currently plays Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange revealed to UK publication, Empire that Dr. Strange will indeed make an appearance in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. He also said that:
” To get us all together will be quite something. That’s why this character is being introduced, to open up the next chapter…… so watch this space to see how that unfolds.”
To hardcore Marvel fans his inclusion will come as no surprise but it will be interesting to see if he plays a big role in the Russo Brother’s directed Avengers sequel. From the sounds of things, this movie looks like it will be the biggest Marvel studios movie ever as it plans to contain all the major heroes that have appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. Cumberbatch also admitted that the production of the film will be challenging for him as he said that there is a “logistical challenge of aligning his schedule with those of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany”. hopefully we will also see the Doctor in the follow up to Infinity War as well. Doctor Strange opens November 4 2016 and Avengers: Infinity War is set for a May 4 2018 release date.
