The English actor has let slip that he will also be seen portraying the character in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War".
Cumberbatch spoke of the "logistical challenge of aligning his schedule with those of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany" during an interview with Empire magazine, Express reported.
While he made no mention of the title, the four actors are known to only appear together next in the 2018 movie.
"To get us all together will be quite something. That's why this character is being introduced, to open up the next chapter," said the 40-year-old.
Though prior to assembling with the Avengers, Doctor Strange will first make a cameo in next year's Chris Hemsworth-starrer "Thor: Ragnarok". The Australian actor was previously snapped on set in character, holding up a card with the New York address of the Doctor.
"Marvel's Doctor Strange" enters cinemas on 27 October in Malaysia and 3 November in Singapore and Cambodia.
