The second international trailer for "Thor: Ragnarok" has confirmed that Doctor Strange will feature in the third installment of Marvel’s blockbuster superhero film. The Japanese trailer was shared by Cinema Today on YouTube. While the trailer, released on Wednesday, mostly contains footage from the previous trailer, an extended scene at the beginning of the almost two-minute long clip shows Doctor Strange warning Thor that his future is about to change drastically.

'Destiny has dire plans for you, my friend'

“Destiny has dire plans for you, my friend,” Doctor Strange ominously warns, to which Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, responds, “I have dire plans for destiny.”

While additional details regarding Doctor Strange’s feature in the film is not known yet, fans have long-anticipated his appearance as Thor made a cameo in a post-credits scene in 2016’s “Doctor Strange”.

The pair is also set to appear in "Avengers: Infinity War" the sequel to 2012's Marvel's "The Avengers" and 2015's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" which is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018. According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, “Avengers: Infinity War” will take place four years after the events of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.”

Superhero with incredible powers

Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe last year. One of the most powerful sorcerers alive, Strange has magical powers of projecting and manipulating energy, transforming matter, time travel and mental possession, among other things. Soon after its release, Doctor Strange became Marvel’s biggest solo character debut movie, beating Iron Man and grossing $677.7 million worldwide.

The main villain

"Thor: Ragnarok", which is directed by New Zealand-born Taika Waititi, follows Thor as he tries to save his homeland, Asgard, from Hela, known as the Goddess of Death, after she invades Asgard.
