Dr. Strange Rumored To Cameo In Avengers: Age of Ultron

Dr. strange

With Benedict Cumberbatch officially cast as Dr. Stephen Strange, many are speculating that the good doctor will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before his self-titled feature in 2016.

A popular rumor currently going through the Internet (via The Inquisitr) is that Cumberbatch’s Dr. Strange will first cameo in next summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. The idea stems from the timing of Marvel’s Cumberbatch announcement and the news that the studio is doing reshoots for Age of Ultron in January. Marvel hasn’t revealed what the new shoot will entail, leading many to speculate that it will involve Benedict Cumberbatch.

But don’t expect Dr. Strange to conjure any magic in the Avengers sequel. Many are thinking that only a pre-Sorecer Supreme Stephen Strange will cameo, possibly as a medical aide who would tend to injured civilians during Ultron’s attack. Or, Cumberbatch could debut in a post-credits scene, as Marvel has done in the past. Nick Fury, Thor, Thanos, and Howard the Duck all made their Cinematic Universe entries through a stinger, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that Dr. Strange would do the same.

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1st, 2015, and Doctor Strange arrives on November 4th, 2016.

  1. Pre-sorceror Stephen Strange? But I thought they weren't doing an origin story for Dr. Strange??

    I have a feeling him and boseman will make quick appearances at the end of avengers 2. We'll see Cap shifting through a folder titled "secret avengers" and have pictures of Stephen strange and black panther. He will start to turn the page to captain marvel and Peter quill, but then be interrupted by both boseman and cummberbatch. "We're ready to assemble, captain."

  2. They are not doing an origin story in HIS OWN MOVIE, according to stories out there.  How is showing a pre-Sorecer Supreme Stephen Strange being seen briefly in A:AOU an origin story?

    I floated this theory back when the trailer dropped & everyone called me crazy...there was a reason they showed the shot of surgical tools. I think that Hydra will bring him in to experiment w/ the twins & since we won't be seeing his origin in his movie, I think they will use an abridged version in Avengers. Maybe he tries to help the twins escape & Hydra punishes him for it by destroying his hands...w/ the Scarlet Witch's powerset it's possible that this is where he may discover magic as well. 

  3. Strange was already called out as a treat in the winter soilder, now since the inhumans are on shield black panther is going to be in civil war, I think captain marvel and doctor strange will be in post credits before their movies are released.
