There is plenty of speculation about which Marvel superheroes will be battling in "Avengers: Infinity War" and its sequel. But one thing is certain: Doctor Strange will be showing up offering his usual spellbinding help.

In an interview with British movie magazine Empire, "Doctor Strange" actor Benedict Cumberbatch discussed the "logistical challenge of aligning his schedule with those of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany."

The actors he named, of course, are meeting up in 2018's "Avengers: Infinity War."

"To get us all together will be quite something," Cumberbatch added. "That's why this character is being introduced, to open up the next chapter."

No other details have been revealed officially about "Avengers: Infinity War," but if Doctor Strange will be unleashing his usual brand of magic, we can only hope even more exciting superhero cameos will be announced soon.

Until then, fans can catch Cumberbatch as "Doctor Strange" in theaters October 27 in Australia, October 28 in the UK and November 4 in the US. "Avengers: Infinity War" is set to hit theaters in 2018.
