Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch reveals there are a number of Marvel actors he wants more screen time with in the future.
strange doctor Actor Benedict Cumberbatch reveals which Marvel stars he wants more screen time moving forward. After movies like 2008 Iron Man and 2011 Captain America: The First Avenger firmly established the MCU as a popular franchise, 2016 saw the release of strange doctor. The film introduced Cumberbatch’s new hero, a cocky but incredibly gifted surgeon who eventually becomes the titular superhero, earning positive reviews from audiences and critics alike. Since first appearing in 2016, Cumberbatch’s hero has also appeared in a number of other MCU films, including Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
After the monumental events of Avengers: Endgame, the MCU has looked very different, with many heroes now scattered around the world following the death of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and the retirement of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans). Doctor Strange has now appeared in two Phase 4 releases, including last year’s Spider-Man: No Coming Home and this spring Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Although he’s now appeared in five major MCU releases, there are still a number of Marvel characters that Doctor Strange has yet to interact with in any meaningful way. Now Cumberbatch is revealing who he hopes to share more screen time with in the future.
In a new interview with Oracle time, Cumberbatch cites Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury, as his top pick for someone he’d like to work with more in the MCU in the future. The actor also reveals that Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki are other actors he hopes to get more screen time with, before lamenting that Doctor Strange and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow don’t haven’t spent a lot of time together. Check out Cumberbatch’s full comment below:
“Samuel L. Jackson. Would love to share some time with him if he’s still around. I don’t know anymore. I guess it depends on what timeline? Unfortunately I haven’t had much screen time with Scarlett Johansson and I’d like more with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.Thing is, I got to the party very late as Marvel was just celebrating the first decade with this incredible group shot in Endgame.
Jackson’s Fury, the man largely responsible for assembling the original Avengers team, has been an MCU staple since his introduction at the very end of Iron Man. The mysterious SHIELD director has either appeared in cameo roles or been a more prominent supporting character in a host of MCU films, often pulling strings from the shadows and setting plans in motion. Since Cumberbatch joined the MCU in 2016 during Phase 3, the actor hasn’t had any significant screen time with Jackson, but he hasn’t interacted much with Hemsworth or Hiddleston either, even in movies. team movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
With Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige previously describing Cumberbatch as the new “anchorof the MCU, it’s certainly possible that Doctor Strange will share more screen time with Fury and Thor in the future. With Loki now working for the TVA in an alternate dimension, however, it’s less likely that Cumberbatch and Hiddleston are getting as much time together as the actor would like.With many exciting MCU projects to come in the years to come, there is definitely potential for strange doctor team up with a host of characters he hasn’t had time to properly interact with yet.
