Oscar nominated Benedict Cumberbatch is the star of the film Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness later in March 2022.
There are actors you are sick of seeing everywhere (ahem, Ryan Reynolds). Cumberbatch might fit this description However, what makes him stand out is the diversity of his characters. He was in four big films last year, and only one of the films was one that was a Marvel movie (Spider-Man: No Way Home).
The Power of the Dog features Benedict Cumberbatch portraying a rancher in Montana the movie has earned him a nomination for Best Actor. Although actor Sam Elliott has reservations about the film due to its “allusions to homosexuality” and the reality that this Western film was shot in New Zealand, Cumberbatchfirmly is adamant about his character and the film. Recently, the movie received the Best Picture at EE British Academy Film Award. Also known as BAFTA’s. Jane Campion, director of the film, was named the title of Best Director. It is the third time an female director has been awarded the award in the history of BAFTA.
Cumberbatch recently was awarded his Hollywood Walk of Fame star. Cumberbatch is in the forefront of Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. have left the comic book film industry. Marvel chief executive Kevin Feige was there to give some words of praise.
“Benedict has transformed his character into an icon, appearing in a historic three of the top six films of all time. Feige stated that it has been a long journey.
In the wake of Avengers: Endgame leaving the MCU in this state where it can go in any direction, Cumberbatch has plenty of scenes to chew if he is as significant as we believe he will be in the next films. Multiverse of Madness, directed by Spider-Man director Sam Raimi will be Cumberbatch’s part as Dr. Strange as he deals with alternate reality in the aftermath of Spider-Man: No Way Home. The film will also feature MCU heavyweights like Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Karl Mordo, and Benedict Wong as Wong.
It seems to be an enormous amount of work for one person. Cumberbatch does not seem to be averse to the idea as he has accepted four new projects and is filming another right now.
