Benedict Wong has confirmed he’ll appear in Avengers: Infinity War, just as his character debuts in this week’s release of Doctor Strange.

Playing magic master Wong, the actor confirmed the news over the weekend. He’ll also join fellow magician Benedict Cumberbatch who has already said he’ll also appear in Joe and Anthony Russo’s opening Avengers movie.

Talking to Screen Rant, Wong was asked about his character’s role as an eventual Avenger in the comic books.

Yes, so we’ll, uh, we’ll see him in Infinity War. I’ll be…

“Are you saying Wong could be in Infinity War?

“He is. I’m saying he is! I hope that’s… Yeah, it is true.

Cumberbatch, meanwhile, said we can expect Doctor Strange to make an appearance too.

“To get us all together will be quite something,” he told Empire (via the Express). “That’s why this character is being introduced, to open up the next chapter. So watch this space to see how that unfolds.”

Avengers: Infinity War is set for release in May 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
