Captain America: Civil War's writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, dropped a major hint at Doctor Strange's involvement in Avengers: Infinity War!
Doctor Strange is coming to the big screen this year, and British actor Benedict Cumberbatch will bring Marvel's iconic magical hero to life. However, as of yet we are still unsure whether his character will play a part in the upcoming Avengers movies. He was noticeably absent from Captain America: Civil War, mainly because Cumberbatch was hard at work filming the Doctor Strange movie. However, Stephen Strange did get a bit of a name drop in Captain America: The Winter Solider, but apart from that, we've seen nothing of the Sorcerer Supreme in these Marvel movies. But all of that is to come, and Civil War's writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, dropped a big hint at Strange's involvement in Avengers: Infinity War. See what they had to say about Civil War and Infinity War in the video below.
In an interview with Collider, the two scriptwriters, who have been writing Marvel movies together since Captain America: The First Avenger, spoke about the difficulties of getting all of these big stars together to film the next Avengers movies. “The scheduling has got to be a nightmare. You can't just say 'Benedict Cumberbatch' - or whoever - 'come to Atlanta for nine months.' You know. It can't work that way," said McFeely. The mere fact that McFeely mentioned Cumberbatch's name leads us to believe that Strange will be joining the Avengers in the very near future.
Cumberbatch has already spoken about how Doctor Strange will take the MCU into a 'strange' new direction, so we'll have to wait and see whether he'll have a 'strange' effect on the Avengers. With Scarlet Witch and The Vision presumably being part of Marvel's superhero team up movie, there will already be a lot of mystical powers on show. It'll be fun to see what dynamic Cumberbatch's Strange will add to the movies, which will be directed by the Russo brothers. Hopefully we'll get to see Tom Hiddleston's Loki and Cumberbatch's Strange meet one another, which would be incredible to watch. Would you like to see Doctor Strange be part of the Avengers?
