Just How Big A Role Will Doctor Strange Play In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’?
Thanks to the latest news letter from Disney’s D23 fan club, however, audiences can now expect Cumberbatch to stand alongside Hemsworth and Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo in some capacity:
If you need even more intergalactic, world-saving action, Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.
The announcement finally confirms what Marvel fans have long suspected, though it doesn’t necessarily explain the nature of Cumberbatch’s involvement. According to the mid-credits scene in Doctor Strange, Thor has returned to earth seeking the whereabouts of his half-brother Loki for purposes unknown. Yet the god of thunder is apparently unable to find his mischievous kin on his own, so he seeks Strange’s assistance in the matter.
As ComingSoon.net points out, the Doctor Strange and Hulk characters have a long, complex history in the original comics. What’s more, the initial set photo featuring Thor holding a card with Strange’s address is quite literally ripped from an older comic book story line, so it’s a sure bet that Cumberbatch may be doing more in Thor: Ragnarok than seeing the sights in New York with Thor and Loki.
Thor: Ragnarok will usher in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s equivalent to the biblical apocalypse on November 3, 2017.
