Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange in the MCU, says he felt the need to have his merchandise when Tom Hiddleston (Loki) showed him the range of products inspired by his character, reported RadioTimes magazine.
''This is a point of contention. Tom Hiddleston, he comes back from doing Thor and he's like, 'Look, dude!' And he's got a Thor lunchbox, a Thor slurpy cup and Thor backpacks.
"And there's Spider-Man backpacks and Hulk backpacks too. And I'm like, 'I'm a Marvel superhero too! Where's my Dr. Strange backpack for Christ's sake? Where's my merch I can bloody manipulate time. I can fly! Kids need to realise the potential value of having a Dr Strange backpack," the 41-year-old actor joked.
Cumberbatch was last seen as Doctor Strange in "Avengers: Infinity War".
