The latest installment of Thor is due for release on November 3.
Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Strange had previously been rumored to be starring in the upcoming film. However, now his appearance has been confirmed with a clip featuring in a Japanese trailer for the movie.
In the latest clip, Dr. Strange appears to give the Norse god of thunder a peculiar warning. “I sense a great change in your future,” warns the Benedict Cumberbatch character. “Destiny has dire plans for you, my friend.” Thor replies: “I have dire plans for destiny.”
Strange seems to be foreshadowing the appearance of Cate Blanchett’s Hela, the goddess of death, her siege on Asgard, and the absolute chaos she’s about to wreak on the Marvel universe.
Hemsworth and Hiddleston return as Thor and Loki respectively in this third standalone Thor film. They will be joined by Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
As well as Cate Blanchett joins the cast as Hela, the goddess of death. Jurassic Park and Independence Day star Jeff Goldblum has also joined the cast as the “eccentric” Grandmaster, an ancient and supernatural character with mysterious powers.
Other new cast members are Tessa Thompson (Creed, Selma), who will play Valkyrie and Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings, Star Trek) who plays Skurge.
