It may not be the 30-plus characters Scarlett Johansson recently revealed will share a single scene in the anticipated Avengers epic, but a new photo shared by Robert Downey Jr. from the set of Avengers: Infinity War and it features a team-up fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have not yet seen. The photo, taken during downtime between takes, features Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk), Benedict Wong (Wong) and Downey himself, sharing a laugh over drinks.
Or, as RDJ puts it, “Forks, tongs, cans + bottles + a Wong.”

Not only does the photo offer another idea of the sort of team-ups audiences will experience when the sequel arrives in theaters — Downey, Cumberbatch and Wong are obviously in costume, likely having shot or preparing to shoot a scene together — it further lays to rest early rumors that Cumberbatch would be represented on-set by a body double, with the actor dubbing in his lines at a later date. Though the Sherlock star arrived on set a mere week ago, it appears as though he and his fellow Doctor Strange actor, Benedict Wong, have settled in nicely with their new teammates — off-camera at least.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War boasts a sprawling ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie. The film arrives in theaters May 4, 2018, with the untitled sequel opening May 3, 2019.
