Doctor Strange assembles with the "Avengers"

Wednesday, 05 Oct, 2016

Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has become a big place over the last eight years, so we don't need to be surprised when a new superhero is introduced.

Simply enough, Cumberbatch stated that Doctor Strange's powers will prove most beneficial to trials and he, himself, agrees to the gathering of all the Marvel characters. According to the actor "To get us all together will be quite something".

Despite its release date approaching quickly, not much is known about the upcoming Doctor Strange movie from Marvel Studios.

"Avengers: Infinity Wars" is expected to hit US theaters this May 2018.

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch attends the press call for "Sherlock" during Comic-Con International 2016 at Hilton Bayfront on July 24, 2016 in San Diego, California.

And by saying "all" he meant Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.

This news at least increases the likelihood of some familiar faces showing up in that inevitable Doctor Strange post-credits scene.

"Wong is another thing all together, because there's, you know, it's a racial stereotype", director Scott Derrickson says. How is this possible when there's only one Sorcerer Supreme allowed at a time? "Doctor Strange's" Eye of Agamotto is apparently the fifth Infinity Stone found in Marvel movies.

During an interview with Comicbook.com on the set of Doctor Strange, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked what difference was between Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch, considering they are both wielders of other worldly magic.

Cumberbatch stars in the forthcoming superhero movie as Doctor Stephen Strange, a neurosurgeon who "discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions" following a serious auto accident.

When Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange hits theaters in November, we expect to see a lot of changes made between the pages of the classic Marvel comic and the silver screen.

After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under her wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.
