Benedict Cumberbatch drops massive hints about the aftermath of 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Avengers: Infinity War left Marvel fans anxious about the future of their favourite superheroes. Many have been scavenging for spoilers or fan theories to try and clam their nerves about what lies ahead in the second part of the movie, especially when it comes to who lives and who dies.

Of all the characters in the movie, it was only Benedict Cumberbatch who is supposed to have read the entire script and knows what exactly happens. Dr Strange has the ability to foresee what lies ahead and, according to the movie, he examined more than 14 million possibilities to win over Thanos and realized there was only one way out.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Benedict Cumberbatch has shown keen interest in reprising the role of the Sorcerer Supreme in the upcoming instalment. This left many wondering how that would happen considering the fact that he was turned to dust on Titan after Thanos snapped his fingers.

Cumberbatch has been a part of three movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe including his cameo in Thor: Ragnarok. When asked about the future of the character, he said that it is only known to Kevin Feige, the president of MARVEL Studios. 

According to Deadline, Cumberbatch said, "Oh, Strange? Just try to stop me. That's all kind of lined up as far as I'm aware, but who knows? I mean, you know, the problem is how he gets out of where he's at. But that's the only thing. I'm bits of dust at the moment as far as I understand. So you really have to ask Kevin Feige. But, as far as wanting to do it, yeah, I would love to go back into that role.”

Marvel is keeping its cards close to its chest and the studio is yet to unveil the title of the upcoming Avengers movie.

Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the MCU, said earlier this month that the upcoming movie is bound to blow everyone’s mind. He didn’t reveal anything more than that keeping in mind how the movie suffered after Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo unintentionally revealed spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War in an interview ahead of the film's release.

However, this piece of news from Cumberbatch definitely is a ray of hope when it comes to the return of the superheroes that were turned to dust when the Mad Titan snapped his fingers. While the fate of the Avengers is unknown, we will have to wait and see what exactly happens when Captain Marvel comes into the picture.

The superheroes who were turned to dust in Avengers: Infinity War belonged to Avengers phase II and included Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Falcon, Winter Soldier, Wanda Maximoff and Vision.
