With his film around the corner and the Russo brothers gearing up for their November start date on the giant ensemble film known as Infinity War and the currently untitled Avengers four, everyone has been awaiting the announcement that Doctor Strange will join the ranks in Infinity War.
Well, Doctor Strange will indeed be joining The Avengers in their battle against the mad titan. According to Empire via Express UK Benedict Cumberbatch himself told that outlet that he would appear in the film.
Cumberbatch told the outlet:
The “logistical challenge of aligning his schedule with those of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany”.
That “logistical challenge” that Cumberbatch is speaking of is going to a marvel(no pun intended) to see unfold. Assembling all of these actors for the nine-month shoot will not be an easy task. They are shooting the films back to back however so that will ease some difficulty of working around these actors schedules.
“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.”
I will be watching that space very carefully Mr. Cumberbatch. I am very excited to how Doctor Strange unfolds not only as a film itself but as a chapter in the MCU. Doctor Strange in the Sorcerer Supreme guarding our dimension. So whatever threat Thanos is setting forth is going to be a big one. Also Ant-Man, Thor, Vison, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange on screen together? I have to keep pinching myself that this is happening.
Hopefully, with confirmation of Cumberbatch’s involvement, come November we will have the full casting announcement for Infinity War.
So what do guy think of the Doctor’s involvement in Infinity War?
