Doctor Strange Confirmed for Thor: Ragnarok
Looks like Marvel’s intergalactic buddy cop movie got another buddy to join them!
Disney’s official fanclub D23 released a statement confirming that the Sorcerer Supreme will head to the cosmos with Thor and Hulk:
“Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.”
As to how large a role Strange will play in the film, only time will tell. Hulk and Strange do have quite a comic book history together having teamed (alongside Namor) to form the original Defenders in 1971. A very different Defenders lineup is slated to hit Netflix later this year.
Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Needless to say, it looks like it’s going to be both a fun Comic Con and D23 Expo this summer with this cast! Thor: Ragnarok will storm into theaters November 3rd, 2017.
