Benedict Cumberbatch Teases Doctor Strange’s Death In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Iron Man Doctor Strange Avengers Infinity War The Russo Brothers have been pretty forthright in saying that we could be seeing some dead heroes by the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Fans have speculated on these possible deaths for years now. The general consensus seems to be that the original characters are least likely to make it through to the end. However, in an interview with Radio Times, Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange, hinted that The Sorcerer Supreme might not live to see a sequel.

Of course, Cumberbatch did not explicitly say that Doctor Strange would die. When asked about a sequel to Doctor Strange, Cumberbatch played coy:

“I know the latest is that I might not make it out of this film alive…It’s only the end of the first film, if I’m right, ‘Doctor Strange will be back.’ I have been back, in Thor: Ragnarok and obviously in this film, so there’s nothing to say, either contractually or otherwise, that he’s coming back again… The masterplan is continually in flux, so it would be out of order for me to speculate.”

Even though he mentions the possibility, it still doesn’t seem likely that Doctor Strange will die. While Avengers 4 could see some heroes resurrected by the Infinity Gauntlet, Doctor Strange has garnished a sizeable fanbase. With only a few appearances under his belt, it’s doubtful that Marvel would be looking to get rid of him so quickly.

Do you think Doctor Strange will survive Avengers: Infinity War? Let us know down in the comments! Here is the synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War: 

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner and Paul Rudd.

The 10 Best Episodes Of ‘Spider-Man: The Animated Series’

Previous1 of 11

Spider-Man The Animated SeriesPeter Parker has had many incarnations throughout the fifty plus years of his existence but none more so than in animation. There’s the newer Ultimate Spider-Man series on Disney, the classic ’60s and ’80s Spider-Man cartoons and even the soon-to-be classic The Spectacular Spider-Man, but there is one series that will always have a place in my heart and was a major reason why this character resonates for so many people that grew up during the time it was released.

The ’90s Spider-Man series that run on Fox Kids was among my favorite cartoons growing up and even when I couldn’t get a hold of the issues they were adapting, it was the closest thing that I could get to reading the comics. How much of a presence did it have? The Spider-Man ride, which is arguably the best at Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando, was based on this series and it’s got every bit of the charm that we saw on the small screen.

These episodes are classics so let’s countdown the best ones from the ’90s Spider-Man series. Click Next to get started!
