Benedict Cumberbatch will make his first appearance as Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in November’s Doctor Strange, but Doctor Strange’s appointment book already seems to be filling up.
The actor has revealed during an interview with Empire (via Express UK) that he will return in Avengers: Infinity War, which hits theaters summer 2018.
Getting there won’t be easy, of course, with Cumberbatch himself admitting that there exists a “logistical challenge of aligning his schedule with those of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. 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.”
Most guessed this was happening, as it has long been teased that Infinity War will contain upward of 67 Marvel characters.
