Warning: The following post contains spoilers on a major Doctor Strange character in Avengers 4!
Michael Grillo, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely recently made an appearance at the Austin Film Festival. During their panel appearance, they briefly discussed the highly-anticipated Avengers 4, which Markus and McFeely penned the script for.
However, Grillo, who serves as an executive producer on the film may have revealed a surprising appearance from Doctor Strange character, The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton):
“…when we got Tilda Swinton, she was just a 1-day availability…”
At the moment, we have no context into how The Ancient One from Doctor Strange factors into the story of Avengers 4. However, this raises some interesting questions in regards to her status given that the character died in Doctor Strange.
As far as other characters from that MCU entry are concerned, Dr. Stephen Strange himself gave Thanos the Time Stone in Avengers: Infinity War in exchange for the Mad Titan sparing Tony Stark’s life. As a result, Strange ends up turning to dust along with half of his fellow Avengers and Guardians and of course, all of existence.
Are you excited at the prospect of seeing Tilda Swinton reprise her role as The Ancient One in Avengers 4? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the MCU.
