In a little over a month, audiences around the world will finally get to see Marvel's highly anticipated Doctor Strange film on the big-screen starring Benedict Cumberbatch. While many would assume that the Doctor Strange character is a gurantee to appear in the Avengers: Infinity War film, nothing has been confirmed until now!
In speaking with Empire Magazine, Cumberbatch spoke a little about Doctor Strange’s addition to the Infinity War cast and elaborated on how difficult it is for him to align his schedule with future MCU co-stars:
“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.”
With the legendary villain Thanos played by Josh Brolin set to be the major threat in Infinity War, it only makes sense that the Avengers would assemble as much superhero help as possible to defeat such a legendary evil doer.
Pretty awesome right? What do you guys think about the confirmation? How cool will it be to see the Sorcerer Supreme along side the Avengers? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.
