As is the Marvel Studios tradition, Doctor Strange’s post-credit scene set up a major development in a future franchise film while being funny and irreverent.
It was Doctor Strange’s first interaction with an Avenger and the Marvel Universe at large, but it was also setting up what’s to come in Thor: Ragnarok—ComicBook.com's 6th Most Anticipated Film.
While that scene did give a clear indication of what Strange’s purpose would be in the third Thor film, we’re still waiting to learn more about how extensive this team up will be. The film already has Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk playing significant roles. How much will Strange be featured in the already jam-packed film?
Predictably, Cumberbatch is playing coy.
While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the actor admitted to having fun on set but wouldn’t give any details beyond that.
“Chris is lovely and it’s a great character,” Cumberbatch said. “It was a great interaction and there might be a little bit more to see in Thor. But yeah, that’s all I’m gonna say.”
Secrecy is key among most big budget franchises these days, as spoilers can easily cause fan dread just as much as buzz with such lofty expectations.
We’ll find out more when Thor: Ragnarok releases in theaters November 10th.
