Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange is now confirmed to play a part in Marvel Studios‘ upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. Disney‘s official fan club D23 highlights the Taika Waititi film with the following description:
“Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.”
Size of his role is still unknown. Hulk and Strange do have quite a comic book history together having teamed to form the original Defenders in 1971.
Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge. Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum will also appear in the movie.
Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.
