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.
