‘Avengers 2’ Reshoots Rumored to Include Cameo From Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange
It’s no secret that Joss Whedon and Marvel have scheduled reshoots for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in January, as the studio typically schedules time for reshoots a few months after the principal photography is complete. And these reshoots usually involve filming the post-credits sequences, which tease future Marvel films. While it’s been previously rumored that we might see a Captain Marvel cameo in the ‘Age of Ultron’ post-credits scene, a new rumor suggests we might see a different hero: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange.
Just last week, Marvel formally announced the casting of Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme, but ‘Doctor Strange’ doesn’t hit theaters until November 4, 2016, which means we’re likely going to see Cumberbatch make his debut with a smaller appearance in another Marvel film before then.
According to a rumor from Inquisitr, Cumberbatch might very well be making his cameo in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ or the post-credits scene (one of them, anyway), and images from the trailer could support that claim. The trailer for ‘Age of Ultron’ features a hospital scene with a gurney, as well as an isolated mansion on top of a hill, and both of these shots could indicate that Doctor Strange will be making an appearance. It’s possible that we may see the pre-superhero version of Stephen Strange, who began his career as a surgeon.
Or not! It’s also been suggested that the Sorcerer Supreme may make his big screen debut in ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ which hits theaters on May 6, 2016, which would make a bit more sense given that ‘Doctor Strange’ opens six months later.
For all we know, those ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ reshoots might just include another post-credits lunchtime gathering of superheroes. Last time it was falafel. Maybe this time they’ll opt for hot dogs. Speculate away.
