Benedict Cumberbatch’s latest Marvel adventure, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, has only just hit theaters, but the actor is already looking at what’s next. In an interview with Extra TV, the former Sherlock star opened up about his excitement for his character’s on-screen future. Sam Raimi’s sequel leaves the Master of the Mystic Arts in a rather interesting place, and Cumberbatch can’t wait to see how it’s further explored down the line:
I really can’t wait to see what the fan reaction is to this and where it takes Strange, and who he is by the end of the film. But I think it sets him up for a really exciting future.Benedict Cumberbatch
As for whether or not the actor is willing to stick around for the journey, it apparently won’t be a problem. In a different interview, this time with Total Film, the British icon confirmed his love of playing Doctor Strange, and revealed that he won’t be going anywhere anytime soon:
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.Benedict Cumberbatch
