Benedict Cumberbatch was in Australia for a “Oz Comic Con” over a weekend, and theory what done an appearance? The denim shirt. Bless him. Typical male – he frequency shops for himself. we theory he’s during a indicate where designers (probably British designers, we would think) only send him clothes, though we consider he contingency get a lot of suits and not unequivocally many “casual” clothes. Too bad. Anyway, while he was doing his thing during a Oz Comic-Con, compelling Sherlock and assorted other fan-favorite projects, Benedict finished adult observant that he FOR SURE is not going to be in Star Wars. Or Doctor Who.
Science novella fans were left doubly unhappy over a weekend after Benedict Cumberbatch announced that he would not be starring in a new Star Wars films or personification any partial in Doctor Who. Speaking during a Oz Comic Con in Sydney, Australia yesterday, Cumberbatch pronounced that he would not be holding partial in possibly of a franchises.
According to a party site The Iris, that was live-tweeting from a event, a 37-year-old actor told a assembly “I would’ve favourite a partial in JJ’s [Abrams] new Star Wars though it won’t occur sadly.”
Cumberbatch afterwards delivered another abrasive blow during a doubt and answer event by dismissing any rumours he would be starring in Doctor Who.
“I’m never gonna play The Doctor and zero to do with a Whoniverse.”
The news might come as a beating to fans of a British actor best-known for purpose as a complicated day super-sleuth in Sherlock and Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. Cumberbatch was one of a names touted about when Matt Smith announced he would be withdrawal a purpose of a Time Lord final year. Although author Steven Moffat oversees both Sherlock and Doctor Who, Cumberbatch will not be personification a partial in a latter.
Cumberbatch will subsequent be starring as Richard III for a BBC prolongation and will be holding to a theatre in Hamlet subsequent year.
I never unequivocally accepted since people wanted Benedict to join Dr. Who in any capacity. But we do know a enterprise to see him in Star Wars. That would have been AWESOME. Benedict already arrange of looks like someone from a Star Wars universe, though makeup or prosthetics, though afterwards again… we don’t unequivocally know what a story is going to be. we still have my fingers crossed for Lupita to get a large part.
I consider Benedict’s subsequent plan is going to be The Lost City of Z or Blood Mountain. Most people consider it’s Blood Mountain, since he’s forsaken some hints about how he’s bulking adult to play a troops contractor/badass type. Buff Cumby is a Best Cumby. Just don’t do an American accent again!
Photos pleasantness of WENN.
