Polygon have written a very interesting article regarding the new Thor film and a potential appearance of Doctor Strange in this film or at least a mention. This will all be gearing up to the final two Avenger films (Infinity War and untitled part 2) no doubt.
In new photos taken from the set of Thor: Ragnarok, which is currently filming in Australia, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor can be seen holding a business card with a very peculiar address stamped on it. As Hitfix points out, 177A Bleecker St is the address of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum where Strange lives. The card suggests that Strange may make an appearance in the film. There aren’t any other photos or clues that hint at how big of a role the appearance in Ragnarok from Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, may be, but it does confirm that the new superheroes from Marvel’s third cinematic phase and the older heroes are very much aware of each other’s existence.
A few days ago Marvel released two new stills from the upcoming Doctor Strange.
Empire magazine is having a feature on Doctor Strange in their 16 page Autumn/Winter preview out Thursday 25th August and the current issue of Total Film (September 2016) has a 1 page article on Strange.

The survivalist thriller told of a hunter who attempts to assassinate a dictator but is caught, tortured and left for dead. When he escapes back home to England, he must hide out in a harsh countryside with the enemy agents as well as the police in hot pursuit. Rogue Male was published in 1939 and the author, Geoffrey Household, said the dictator was intended to be a stand-in for Adolph Hitler.
This is what Benedict had to say about taking the role:
“I am thrilled both as an actor and producer to be working on bringing this most treasured of English novels to the big screen,” said Cumberbatch, who read the novel several years ago.
Sunny March is also currently producing The War Magician for Studio Canal, which Benedict is involved in.
