Actor Benedict Cumberbatch says even though he is late to the genre of superheroes, it is “very cool” to be a part of Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The 41-year-old actor, who played superhero Doctor Strange, is set to reprise his role in both Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War.

“It’s 10 years coming. It’s just a huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it’s all sort of pointing to this confrontation. It’s amazing to be part of it even though I’m late to the party. It’s a very cool to be part of it,” he told Digital Spy.

Avengers: Infinity War will see the Avengers superhero team joining forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to fight the powerful intergalactic villain Thanos.
