We all know that the cast of Avengers: Infinity War is going to be packed with as many characters from the McU as Marvel can fit into the movie, including of course the returning members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes alongside Thanos, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.
Well, it looks like we can now add a couple of supporting players from the Cinematic Universe, with Cobie Smulders seemingly confirming to Jimmy Kimmel that she’ll be back as Maria Hill, and Benedict Wong telling Comic Book that he will also be reprising his Doctor Strange role as Wong.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch would be reprising his role as the Sorcerer Supreme in Avengers: Infinity War, something that was long thought to be the case. Now, ComicBook.com has confirmed that his Doctor Strange co-star, Benedict Wong, will join him.
Speaking to the outlet in a recent interview, the actor said the following: “I’m thrilled I’m going to be in Infinity War. I’m looking forward to it. I’ll tell you that one first.” He wouldn’t reveal how large of a part he’ll have, but given the massive amount of characters set to feature in the film, we don’t imagine it will be a very big role.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is starting to make the press rounds for Doctor Strange, which hits theaters exactly two weeks from today on November 4. Last week, the studio president and producer was in Hong Kong for a press conference for this Marvel Phase 3 adventure, where he confirmed that one of that movie's supporting characters will in fact return in Avengers: Infinity War. The character in question is none other than Benedict Wong's Wong, who is a "key character" moving forward. Here's what the producer had to say at the press conference below.
"It was always our intention to make Wong a very noble character and a very big part of the movie from the beginning. That was the idea for the character.

While many fans had hoped to see The Defenders joining forces with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Avengers: Infinity War, it is looking increasingly unlikely that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will be absent from the big showdown with Thanos.
Speaking to Collider during a Doctor Strange press junket, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige was asked for his thoughts on the Netflix shows, and whether he could ever see a time where The Defenders would join the big screen side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I think it’s extremely impressive what Netflix has done and it will be the same answer I always give, which is, ‘It all depends on timing,'” said Feige. “It all depends on how to do it because I don’t think what anybody wants to do is have such important characters show up for one second.

They also took the opportunity to address criticism from some fans over the casting of British actress Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, who in the comics is depicted as an Asian man.
Director Scott Derrickson took on the whitewashing controversy, explaining how selecting Swinton was a diversity choice itself.
“I think diversity is the responsibility of directors and producers,” Derrickson told Variety. “In this case, the stereotype of [the Ancient One] had to be undone. I wanted it to be a woman, a middle-aged woman. Every iteration of that script played by »

Jimmy Kimmel hired Doctor Strange (aka Benedict Cumberbatch), The Mightiest Magician in the Cosmos, to vanquish a birthday party’s worth of demons. Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange stars Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, a neurosurgeon-turned-sorcerer of several dimensions. Cumberbatch first visited Jimmy Kimmel Live in April when Marvel gave fans their first look at Doctor Strange to debut the film's first trailer. That visit was part of a week-long Marvel… »
Note to parents: some superheroes do not make for good birthday party entertainment. Jimmy Kimmel needed a magician for a birthday party, so who better than Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange? At least, that's what he thought. Arriving 30 minutes late, the master of the mystic arts was already off to a bad start. "Sorry I'm late, but the traffic on the astroplane was unbelievable," he explained. But Kimmel wasn't having it. "It's 3:30. You were supposed to be here at 3 o'clock. I'm not paying for the last half hour," he said. Cutting to the chase, Dr. Strange requested, "Show me the demons." And demons they were. Kimmel led the way to a »

Jimmy Kimmel is known in Hollywood for his generosity on other people’s birthdays, but probably not so much for his judgment in planning their parties. The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host recently made the terrible mistake of hiring Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for a kids birthday bash. Strange, who casually teleported in a half-hour late, thinks he’s there to vanquish the “little demons,” who have hit the frosting a tad too hard. In reality, Kimmel just wants the man who self-identified on social media as “the mightiest magician in the cosmos” to do a few tricks for the tiny terrors. »
