Doctor Strange looks like he’ll be facing off against an alien – or some kind of character that will heavily utilize CGI in post-production – in the latest set photos for Avengers: Infinity War.
Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange has been spotted getting tackled by an unknown actor in a motion-capture suit. While there’s no official indication of who this character might be, many fans presume that he’s an alien allied with Thanos, the primary villain of the third and fourth Avengers movies. Just Jared took several images featuring Doctor Strange in danger, which can be seen in the link below:

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.
