As uncovered beforehand, Marvel’s newest legend, Doctor Strange, will join his fellow Avengers in the third installment of the superhero franchise, Avengers: Infinity War, which will open in theaters in 2018. . What everyone is wondering about though is what Stephen Strange’s specific role in the film will be as he collaborates with legends like Captain America, Iron Man and that’s just the beginning. In a recent interview with Yahoo, Benedict Cumberbatch talked about what kind of capacity the Sorcerer Supreme plays on the group.
“His job title is defender of the fabric of reality. he fights other dimensional threats that are beyond the perceptions of that very potent squabble [between Captain America and Iron Man]. I would like to think he is going to help them both rather than take sides. Doctor Strange is there to provide the opening of a new chapter, it’s literally going to open up the dimensions so just when that frame got a little crowded, it’s got a whole lot bigger.”
“Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.”
