With the long-awaited introduction of the Sorcerer Supreme last year with Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, fans have already begun awaiting the character’s return with eager anticipation. In addition to reprising his role as Doctor Strange later this year in Thor: Ragnarok, Cumberbatch is also set to join The Avengers as Earth’s magical defender next year in Avengers: Infinity War.
Although Avengers: Infinity War has been filming since February, Cumberbatch had yet to set foot on the set of the production until today when it was revealed via Cumberbatch’s movement coach, Jay Funk, on Twitter that he had arrived in Atlanta to begin working on the project.

It is incredibly exciting for Doctor Strange fans to hear Cumberbatch is soon to begin filming his part for Infinity War. It was also recently confirmed that Chadwick Boseman would appear as fellow newcomer Black Panther in the culmination of the MCU, along with the announcement that Danai Gurira would join the film as Okoye as well.
While Doctor Strange was generally well-received by both the fans and critics, one complaint that frequently arose concerned Doctor Strange’s powers in the film, or rather lack thereof. Considering the fact that Doctor Strange was an origin film, it was understandable the inexperienced sorcerer was given limited reign in showcasing his abilities. For that reason, many fans are hoping to see his powers develop and become even more powerful in next years’ Infinity War, which is a strong possibility considering the unparalleled talent the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy will be facing in Thanos.

12 Highlights From The ‘Black Panther’ Teaser Trailer
This past Friday, after previously seeing the first poster for Black Panther, the main event came later that night. While we watched the NBA Finals, hoping to see the Warrior sweep the Cavs (Lebron wasn’t having any of that), fans were treated to the teaser trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther. Shortly afterward, the trailer was released online for everyone’s consumption.
Pretty much for the next 24 hours, the teaser has been endlessly viewed and talked about on social media as well as in person. The trailer was incredibly exciting, fun, fresh, and everything fans of the character have hoped for ever since he was first introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War.

The movie, with a 90% African/African American cast, will be a superhero first and give audiences something completely brand new. Hardcore fans and newbies alike were very excited for what’s in store for the new film, so let’s take a deeper look.
