Return of ‘Doctor Strange’: Benedict Cumberbatch hints about new MCU movietext_fields
London: Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch recently hinted at the return of his iconic character Doctor Strange in a Marvel movie next year.
"There are some Marvel capers in the making next year," Cumberbatch said while being a guest in the 'JW3 Speaker Series'.
However, it is not yet clear if Cumberbatch is referring to a standalone 'Doctor Strange’ sequel, or if he is making an appearance in another film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe like 'Avengers: The Kang Dynasty', which was recently delayed.
Cumberbatch first played the character of Dr. Stephen Strange in 2016, in the film 'Doctor Strange'.
The actor played the same character in 'Thor: Ragnarok' (2017), 'Avengers: Infinity War' (2018), 'Avengers: Endgame' (2019), 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' (2021), and 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' (2022).
It was in 'Multiverse of Madness', that a post-credit scene hinted at a possible future for 'Doctor Strange'. "We knew that we wanted to introduce Clea," said the movie’s writer Michael Waldron in an interview with Gizmodo.
"She's Strange's great love in the comics and it felt to me like Strange wasn't at the point at the start of our movie where he was ready to meet the love of his life. It felt like we had to close the loop with him and Christine Palmer. And so after she gives him her wisdom to not be afraid of loving someone, then it felt like we were right to tease what could be eventually with him and Clea," he added.
