Several MCU actors including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson have left their iconic roles in the previous MCU films after working on them for years before moving ahead. Benedict Cumberbatch has been portraying Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2016, and there’s a good possibility he’s getting tired of flying about and toying with fictitious portals on a green screen. Benedict Cumberbatch, on the other hand, has stated that he has no plans to leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is all set for its release on 6th May 2022 starring Cumberbatch as the most powerful sorcerer. The movie since the beginning has grabbed a lot of attention be that due to Rachel McAdams‘ involvement or its ban in South Arabia over the LGBTQ+ arch. Moreover, having taken six years to get his second solo outing, we can presume that it is going to be worth the wait.

While Benedict Cumberbatch is presently on a promotional tour for the upcoming Marvel film, he has been quite eager to talk about his plans for the future of Doctor Strange and how he does not want to give up the role. Cumberbatch’s intentions to keep portraying Doctor Strange might be perceived as a clue into the character’s destiny in his next feature, but given the film’s exploration of the multiverse, there’s no way to solidify any statement before the movie’s release.

“I’m not tired of it all yet. I really enjoy playing this character, and I’ve still got a lot left to give as him, and a lot more adventures I want to have with him.”

Cumberbatch is no new to lengthy projects, so he’ll surely be in it for the long term. Prior to taking on Doctor Strange in the MCU, he was most known for his part in BBC’s Sherlock, which lasted over seven years.  Whatever the multiverse has in store for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange, it appears that this will not be the final solo film featuring the sorcerer, but with a road to self-discovery in store, Strange will certainly end the film with a massive transformation.
