Benedict Cumberbatch Improvised Hilarious Avengers: Infinity War Line
By christy mathew
Benedict Cumberbatch had improvised one perfectly snarky Doctor Strange line in Avengers: Infinity War. The movie was the first part of the two-part conclusion of the first three phases of the MCU. All of Avengers had to assemble for MCU’s biggest threat yet, Thanos.
But all the heroes did not become best of friends right after they met. One of the best examples is the relationship between Doctor Strange and Iron Man.
The two heroes did not meet until Avengers: Infinity War as Tony Stark did not take Doctor Strange very seriously. He even asked him what his job was other than making balloon animals.
But both of them did agree on their common goal and they did not want to be the reason the universe lost to Thanos.
In a recent interview with THR, Benedict Cumberbatch who plays Doctor Strange revealed that he had improvised one of his character’s funniest lines.
The line was in fact the response to Tony Stark’s question about his job. He had said, “It’s protecting your reality, douchebag.” Benedict admitted to having added the “douchebag” part.
The actor shared, “I remember on the set when I called him a douchebag, there was this sort of ripple effect. ‘Oh my God. Did you just call Iron Man a douchebag?’ They kept it, good for them. And then, it got the same kind of response at the cinema.”
