Doctor Strange may have started out as one of Marvel Studios’ lesser known superheroes, but after two gargantuanly successful appearances as the master of the mystical arts — “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which have collectively grossed nearly $3 billion worldwide — Cumberbatch now finds himself at the top of the MCU heap. Sandwiched between those films was his second Oscar nomination for Netflix’s “The Power of the Dog.” Coming up are two more projects already in the works for the streamer: a feature adaptation of Roald Dahl’s short-story collection “The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar;” with Wes Anderson; and the limited-series spy thriller “The 39 Steps,” which the actor is also executive producing.
I changed the name of the thread because I didn't wanted to make another thread!
This is a list of actors who do both., superheros and art film in Hollywood,
No actor balances superhero films with prestige projects like the one and only Benedict Cumberbatch. The acclaimed English actor, two-time Oscar-nominee, and Emmy winner is one of the industry's most acclaimed Thespians, known for his intense and powerful performances and penchant for playing morally complex characters.
Cumberbatch began 2022 by receiving an Oscar nomination for his brilliant work in Jane Campion's thrilling neo-Western The Power of the Dog. He then starred in the highly-anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, reprising his role as the (former) Sorcerer Supreme. Cumberbatch goes from crowd-pleasing superhero films to auteur-driven projects with ease, cementing him as one of Hollywood's hardest-working actors.
I’ve been voting in that poll for at least 4 weeks, and I think it goes in for another few months. It seems silly, doesn’t it, to have a poll last that long. There’s a few folks on Twitter who are dunning everyone as BC goes up and down in the poll, saying his fandom doesn’t love him anymore, or enough to keep voting. Frankly, I don’t know the purpose of that poll, who those folks are, or why it’s so important he wins. Does he win a million quid? A new home in the country? Will anyone care he won (or lost) in 5 years? Is it better than a BAFTA? 🤷🏻♀️😂
Maybe this has been posted before, but I came across it today and Benedict is on the list! He’s #13, although he should be higher up, of course. It’s at 7:32. Also, if you pause and zoom in on the clips at TIFF, you can probably see me because I was there!
