Marvel fans were teased with the notion that Doctor Strange would be meeting up with an Avenger in the recent Doctor Strange film, now we have official confirmation that the good Doctor will be appearing in the upcoming film, ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘.

The official Disney fan club D23 has posted an article regarding various Disney-related things to look forward to in 2017, and it’s in a paragraph about upcoming movies and within their description of the God of Thunder’s next big screen adventure that Benedict Cumberbatch’s role in Thor: Ragnarok is directly mentioned. It’s not exactly coming from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, but he article reads,
If you need even more intergalactic, world-saving action, Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.
Thinking about the Doctor Strange mid-credits sequence, it would have been legitimately weird if the future Sorcerer Supreme didn’t appear in Thor: Ragnarok… but because he is, let’s recap what we know. Apparently with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in tow (he’s never shown), Thor goes to the Sanctum Sanctorum in New York to request assistance from Doctor Strange. Following the events of Thor: The Dark World, Anthony Hopkins’ Odin has gone missing, and the God of Thunder has dragged his adopted brother to Earth in order to try and find their father. Doctor Strange asks if finding Odin would mean removing Loki from Earth, and when the response is affirmative, he agrees to help.
