Benedict Cumberbatch Confirms That Doctor Strange Will Be An Avenger
Strange to the Avengers!

Doctor Strange is currently making its way into theaters around the world. News about the movie don’t seem to end.

We’ve previously reported that Tilda Swinton would even be up for an Ancient One spin-off, which we totally approve. Now we’ve got some ever greater news about Doctor Strange himself!

Remember when he teased us about an appearance of Doctor Strange in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War? We all assumed he might just appear to help the rest of the Avengers to fight the evil in the course of their next adventure. That won’t be the only thing he’s doing.

At a press event in London for the UK premiere of Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch gave the following explanation whether or not Stephen Strange will appear in Avengers: Infinity War:

There’s so much going on in this film [Doctor Strange]. There’s such a great story arc, there are so many great challenges for me, as an actor, in every department, from wirework to kung fu to great dialogue scenes with the most incredible cast and great characters. [I] put it on the back-burner that I was playing a superhero… At the premiere, which was the first time I’d seen the film, and – I won’t spoil it for you – but there’s a moment near the end where I thought, ‘Oh yeah, that’s it, he’s a superhero, he’s going to be an Avenger,’ so that’s really cool.”

Though, Stephen won’t be the only one from Doctor Strange who will join the Avengers.

Benedict Wong, who’s playing Wong, told ComicBook.com that he will make an appearance in the upcoming movie as well.

We don’t know yet how these two characters will get introduced to the superhero group, but I’m sure that it will be epic. I already cannot wait to see all of them take on their new villain.

Doctor Strange will hit theaters on November 4th.
