Will be there in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’: Cumberbatch

Los Angeles, March 5 (IANS) Actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who essays Doctor Strange in the film by the same name, has shot down rumours that he will be replaced by a stand-in for the character’s scenes in the forthcoming film “Avengers: Infinity War” due to scheduling conflicts.

According to the buzz, Cumberbatch was too busy filming his upcoming movie “The Current War” to appear in “Avengers: Infinity War”, reports etonline.com.

“I think it’s a bit of an exaggeration. There’s a great deal that can be done in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and any comic universe. Whether it’s hiding a pregnancy, to having someone there who’s on another side of the world, but there’s only so much they can do without you. So, I’ll be there. Don’t worry,” Cumberbatch said.

Besides Cumberbatch, other “Avengers: Infinity War” cast members include Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan and Dave Bautista.

“Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage also stars in the film, and he is speculated to play MODOK.

“Avengers: Infinity War” will release next year.
