Benedict Cumberbatch has confirmed that he will be returning for a Marvel Studios Doctor Strange-related project which is set to begin filming next year.
The actor shared the news while talking as a guest in the JW3 Speaker Series.
“I think the only thing I know for certain is, um, there are some Marvel capers in the making next year”
Cumberbatch was last seen in the sequel movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Possible upcoming MCU films Doctor Strange could appear in include the unannounced third Doctor Strange movie, Blade, Spider-Man 4, Fantastic Four, or possibly Avengers: The Kang Dynasty however that is unlikely due to the film’s theatrical release being delayed
Earlier this year, there was a rumor that Marvel Studios might be fast-tracking a third Doctor Strange film. The rumor suggested that another Doctor Strange film would release before Avengers: The Kang Dynasty with Scott Derrickson returning to direct.
