Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr Strange can summon space portals, cast kick-ass spells and deploy the mysterious Cloak of Levitation – but even he can fluff his lines.
Case in point: the trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War’s digital and Blu-ray release, a sneak peek at the two hours’ worth of making-of features, deleted scenes and bloopers. And it’s in the latter where we can see Cumberbatch slurring his own name while striding towards camera. Because even the pros mess up sometimes.
Interestingly, the DVD director’s commentary reveals a classic Cumberbatch Easter egg that didn’t make it to the film. Remember the scene when Strange and Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark first meet in New York? Co-director Joe Russo and writer Christopher McFeely said they originally planned Stark to drop a reference to a role both actors have shared.
