"Marco Polo" fans are still holding out on an update on the show's third season, which has yet to be announced. Although there are speculations that the series will be delayed due to budgetary constraints, there could be another reason why "Marco Polo" Season 3 will get a later air date next year.

Is it possible that the show is finding a way to work around Benedict Wong's hectic schedule now that the actor is confirmed to appear in "Avengers: Infinity War"? Will Kublai Khan end up becoming a recurring character when "Marco Polo" Season 3 comes to Netflix?

"I'm thrilled I'm going to be in 'Infinity War'," Wong admitted to ComicBook, adding that he is "looking forward to" being in the MCU movie. However, the news also had fans worried that this would mean Benedict Wong's appearance in "Marco Polo" Season 3 will be lessened.

However, it is possible that Kublai Khan will end up becoming a recurring character in the show so "Marco Polo" Season 3 could proceed with production. Hopefully, the series will return on Netflix by early 2018.
