Avengers: Infinity War is shaping up to be the supreme Marvel superhero movie event of all time. So, it is appropriate the “Sorcerer Supreme” known as Doctor Strange would appear in the film. Doctor Strange won’t be the only non-Avenger to make an appearance. The Amazing Spider-Man shows up in the film as well. Fans know this thanks to a leaked image from the film. The image shows Doctor Strange and Spider-Man together. Doctor Strange seems to be saving Spider-Man as the wall-crawler might be in a bit of trouble.
Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland, the actors playing Doctor Strange and Spider-Man, share a bit of screen time together in the new film. While Doctor Strange and Spider-Man teamed up many times in the comic books, this is their first one on the big screen.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland both are coming off very successful solo films. The cinematic Doctor Strange feature did well and Spider-Man: Homecoming appears to be resurrecting the once-threatened Sony Spider-Man franchise.
The two actors aren’t the only ones making a special appearance in the upcoming hero film. Avengers: Infinity War brings a number of Marvel heroes into the action since the threat the world faces from the super-villain Thanos truly is earth-shattering.
Cumberbatch and Holland also gain helpful exposure in the new film. Spider-Man remains a proven property, but Doctor Strange may need a bit more promotional help to keep the sorcerer’s first film from being a one-hit fluke.
Considering how popular the actors and their characters are, audiences will continue to see both on the big screen time and time again.
