We usually don’t get too excited over the latest sci-fi superhero flicks, but when they feature everyone’s fav Sherlock, well that’s a different story.
This is great news for all the Cumberbitches out there!
(Side note: Let’s all acknowledge that this word exists and that it isn’t awesome. C’mon, ‘bitches’? Really? We much prefer Cumberbabes. All in favour of changing it forever? Aye!)
The just-dropped teaser trailer for Doctor Strange features the dapper British talent as you’ve never seen him before, as the dimension diving Marvel creation, Dr Steven Strange. (Does he every play anyone without a PhD?)
Acting alongside the talented Tilda Swinton (Rachel McAdams makes an appearance, too), there are definitely shades of Inception in the trailer, with some mind-bending special effects and fight scenes we’re sure the action fan in your life will be more than entertained by. While s/he’s enjoying the fight scenes, you can sit back and enjoy all the Cumberbatch! Plenty of Cumberbatch! Batches of Cumberbatch!

And black-tie-wearing, non-bearded surgeon Cumberbatch:
Take your pick.
We also get a taste for his gravelly American accent. It’s not the British lilt we’re accustomed to, but we’ll take it. And, let’s be honest, we’re pretty into Cumberbatch in any form.
