'Avengers: Infinity War' Will Feature Doctor Strange, Too: Is It Becoming the Crowded Concert of Superhero Movies?

Have you ever gone to a concert, one you were really looking forward to, and tried to buy a t-shirt, get a snack, or even walk around the venue? It’s insanely crowded, right? Sometimes it’s so crowded you can’t move. Sometimes it’s so crowded you can’t even enjoy the show. This sure seems to be the direction we’re heading with Avengers: Infinity War. Benedict Cumberbatch revealed in an interview with Empire (via Express) that his Doctor Strange character is set to walk sideways through cities in the upcoming mega superhero two-parter.

Can’t you just walk normally through a city, Doctor Strange? We’re living in a society here.

Just to set a baseline here, IMDb‘s list of characters rumored to appear in Infinity War now includes Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, Vision, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Racoon, Groot, Ant-Man, Thanos, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Black Panther, War Machine, Loki, Captain Marvel, The Punisher, Baron Zemo, Red Skull, Nebula, Lady Sif, and the Inhumans. Assuming Infinity War will run, say, three hours or so, how much are we supposed to see of these characters? We’re getting into a “Stephanie Meyers in Twilight“-level of screen time here.

And the thing about superhero movies is that they don’t just have to spend time introducing a character, but introducing their powers as well. So let’s think back to that crowded concert and imagine everyone there’s been bitten by a radioactive something-or-other. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. The guy at the front of the line has to show off his plasma beams before he can buy a t-shirt. The girl ordering nachos has to demonstrate that she can absorb the memories of whoever she touches flesh-to-flesh. And it would be practically impossible to move around the place and find your friends.
